For the cabins… not you… PLs don’t have time for showers :)
though you might need to organized which spot each cabin gets and in what order
with the other PLs.
— If showers are in the cabin, work with your PMs to pick good days for showers (watch out
for things like KP duty after lunch, which would cut into cabin time showering).
You’ll probably want to plan on two days for showers if they’re located in the cabin.
— Be available even if not directly needed. (Things can change quickly).
— Be flexible.
— Watch for students having problems with the idea of showering and talk to them about it.
— To set expectations before entering the shower area and to explain the process
so the students feel comfortable.
— Have the kids set their shower stuff out earlier in the day to be ready
(on the ends of their bunks or in a crate).
— While showers are going, give frequent time warnings.
— Keeping students who are not showering busy with games, trivia, or songs.
