Activities and discussions include: Analyzing song lyrics, role plays, videos and a community service project

You'll leave with 120-page Training Manual, a certification card, new business skills and confidence to care for young children on your own. Endorsed by the American Heart Association for the 6-hour total training over the 5-day camp.
