Super Staff SuperVision
A How-To Handbook of Powerful Techniques to Lead Camp Staff to Be Their Best

If you want to learn how to supervise camp staff more effectively, or train others to do so, this is the book!
Written in the engaging, fun style that has made Michael Brandwein one of the nation’s leading speakers in camping, education and recreation, this unique, 204-page book is packed with specific techniques for directors, head counselors, and everyone who supervises camp staff. It teaches Michael’s acclaimed “6 Path System,” six areas of specific responsibility that explain exactly what members of the leadership team can do every day to make the most positive contributions to the success of the program. Whether new or experienced, you can use this book to:

  • motivate and support staff
  • make camp program more creative and exciting
  • increase communication and trust
  • develop stronger staff teaching and leadership
  • boost staff problem-solving and thinking skills
  • handle undesired staff behavior in positive ways
  • maintain high standards and professionalism
  • keep camp safer, physically and emotionally
  • be “strifeguards” for campers who aren’t fitting in


What Directors say about Super Staff SuperVision:

Outstanding! This is the best book on the subject. Michael’s 6 Paths are the single greatest influence in our supervisor training. We got copies for every member of our leadership team and senior staff. They don’t just read it—they use it every day.” Howie & Sari Grossinger, Camp Robin Hood, ON

“Absolutely brilliant! Beautifully easy to implement. It’s both enchanting and intriguing to read—we have many copies!” Jacqui Raill, Camp Ouareau, Quebec

There’s genius in these pages! This fantastic book is full of fresh, practical ideas that have inspired our whole leadership team.” Pam Cobb, Camp Runoia, ME

Engaging and easy to use. The best thing about this book is that it provides a framework for supervisor training with terrific, practical content. Most importantly, it gets results - we've really seen a difference!” Jan Milligan, Camp Fire USA, Camp Sealth, WA

Wow! I couldn't put it down as I nodded, laughed, and highlighted my way through this book. I have learned more in these pages about myself, my staff, and the relationship between us than I had in my whole previous year on the job.” Trent Sano, Glens Falls Family YMCA, NY
An absolute must for administrative staff training! Insightful and practical!” Jonathan Gold, PhD, Oak Crest Day Camp, NJ

We ordered 8 more copies as soon as we finished it. How exciting to finally be able to send a book to our administrative staff that we know they will read and that addresses all of the issues that we have been trying to help them with for years. We’ve never had a resource before that did this—what a big contribution to the camp community!” Sue & Robert Lebby, Camp North Star, WI
