Summer Staff Trainer

"It is an absolute pleasure working with Scott Arizala. He is an expert in the youth development and camping world. He understands the issues and challenges counselors face at the ground level and can relate with camp staff in ways very few speakers can. His sessions always have amazing energy, funny and incredible content and takeaways for our staff."

Dan O'Neil

"Scott brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our staff orientation. He is a dynamic leader and our staff are better prepared for the challenges and joys of working at camp after his training sessions. Scott sets himself apart by personalizing training sessions to our camp's specific goals and needs. We always look forward to his summer visit and are grateful for our relationship with Scott."
