We said last year that Rock Star Saugatuck Teacher Camp was all about launching the awesomeness within all of our attendees. On Day 1 last summer many were quietly questioning themselves as to whether they had bitten off more than they could chew. By the end of Day 3 we all were listening to and witnessing amazing transformations in so many of them. It wasn't that they had attended some magical session. They realized that they do indeed have a lot of insight into powerful teaching and a lot to share. Now six months later, 1/6 of Saugatuck campers are presenting at this year's big MACUL conference in Detroit from March 18-20.
Check out the great list of sessions below from last year's attendees and faculty. Then visit cuerockstar.org to register for this summer's July 7-9 camp presented by MACUL and Saugatuck Public Schools.
