“Can you do this for summer camps?”

Kris Ebner Martin had just watched a demo on Pre-Arrival Learning, an online onboarding program for International high school students, used by over 80,000 students since 2010.

“Of course we can!”

That was 2018.

Now, six years later, over 15,000 staff from over 70 camps throughout the US and Canada, have been trained before arriving at camp.
