Steve and Susie Baskin are parents of a Lac du Bois villager and camp directors themselves. In this TEDx San Antonio talk, Steve articulates the reasons for attending camp and the important lessons youth learn with excellent role models and engaged in a positive learning community. “A fulfilling life begins with interpersonal, face-to-face connections,” and these connections, Baskin asserts, need to be practiced. Baskin asserts that the technology cocoon most of us live in can inhibit personal development and the skills necessary to be successful.
