Training – SEL-Based Opening Circles in Summer Camp

June 12 @ 5:30 pm 7:00 pm

This training expands upon the evidence and research supporting the practice of a daily circle in summer camp programming. Participants will learn about how to incorporate SEL into opening circle structure, why these few minutes are so important for setting the tone for the rest of the day, and how to build consistency in your schedule to to prioritize circle time.


  • Participants will discuss the benefits of consistently including opening circles in their program structure to guide children in managing their behavior
  • Participants will use what they learn to create a schedule for their program staff’s suggested use to build SEL-based opening circles into their program
