Start Talking! at summer camps

Kids who hear about the dangers of drugs from trusted adults are up to 50 percent less likely to use. Mentors at summer camps, or band and sport camps, can support Ohio’s youth in making healthy choices.

Camp leaders can lead a Start Talking!discussion and share the facts about the dangers of alcohol, illegal drugs and the misuse of prescription medications.

These Talking Points for Camp Leaders provide tips to Start Talking! with kids and have a positive and productive conversation. If you are an athlete, coach or instructor at a youth camp, you may be able to communicate a valuable message to campers who look up to you. By setting a good example and sharing the importance of a healthy, drug-free lifestyle, you can combat the negative peer pressure that these youth will likely encounter.
Learn how to get the conversation started at StartTalking.Ohio.Gov.
