Closing Circle: An Activity for Sharing and Debriefing
provides an overview of an activity that is
designed to get campers or staff to share and debrief with one another after a major trip, significant
experience, or at the end of camp itself. The DVD details specific steps for setting up and
executing the "closing circle" exercise. The DVD also explains why this journal exercise is an
exceptional tool for individuals who are working with children in groups, particularly those
groups that don't have much experience using journals. In addition, the DVD reviews possible
variations on this exercise.
Among the topics covered:
- Working with campers in groups
- The basics of group meetings
- How it works
- Suggested categories
Produced in cooperation with the American Camp Association.
