Dan Weir

Many parents across the U.S. are finalizing plans right now for what summer camp their students will attend. I had a chance recently to speak to over 1,000 camp owners at the American Camp Association. Dan Weir runs one of the largest and most successful summer camps in the United States, Frost Valley YMCA (NY). He oversees 250 staff and 2,500 campers each year, and has a Masters Degree specializing in youth development and technology affecting youth. In this interview he shares his views on why camp matters and how camps build character and leadership in students.
