Rhythms of Recreation: Community Building for Large Groups
Have you ever wondered how recreation leaders create, imagine, and curate the content used for community building activities from the stage at large events? Have you ever wondered how an energizer is created or wondered what it may be like to give it a try yourself? Have you ever wondered what it takes to be a thoughtful and intentional up front leader for conferences at retreats? Join us as we learn some of the whys and hows of these wonderings, explore, experiment and create together. Participants will have the opportunity to put practical theology and tricks of the trade into practice at ARW and beyond. This course is part of the Recreation Leadership Training Track.
