Just for the Theme of It: Thematic Programming

Calendar planning is a fun part of our job, however sometimes it can be difficult to put together a month that “flows” or seems cohesive. Often, Activity Professionals think that planning around a theme can be time consuming and not effective. However, this course will get you thinking in a different way!
