Linchpin Online Book Club with TheCampDirector.com
Beginning March 1st, 2010 I will be starting an online book club at TheCampDirector.com. We will be reading Linchpin by Seth Godin. It has so many fantastic applications to camp in how we train and support our staff, to how we teach kids to be productive members of society as an adult worker. By reading this book and discussing it on this blog with fellow camp and recreation professionals, I hope to get a better understanding of how to incorporate the principles into camp this summer.
Buy the book: available wherever books are sold and on audible.com if you prefer to listen to it. Follow the reading schedule and join the discussion on the blog. Don't worry if you don't start at the same time. You can still follow your own reading schedule and comment as you complete each segment.
If you are at ACA National, I have a some free copies of the book to give away if you want to join in the book club. Track me down at the conference and ask me for a book.
I have divided the reading into about 25 pages a week. I'll post my thoughts on that section sometime during that week. If you are reading along it would be great if you posted your ideas too. You can easily keep notes or write your ideas in a text editor and paste them into the comment area.
