We empower your camp leadership and staff with impactful, tailored abuse and harassment prevention trainings and workshops, delivered in person or virtually.
We partner with each camp to ensure that every training and policy both measures up to current best practices and adheres to your camps ethos and needs. There is no one check the box approach when it comes to keep campers and staff safe at camp.
Rahel Bayar is and always has been a “camp person” Raised as a staff kid, and evolving from camper to counselor, senior staff, camp mom and now a sleepaway camp parent, Rahel “gets camp.” Fun fact - she and her husband met as staff members when they were cast as Tony and Maria in their camp’s production of West Side Story.
Rahel leverages her knowledge of camp life with meaningful staff training in an engaging, approachable manner with the goal of making abuse prevention a leadership growth opportunity.

"In the two years we have worked with Rahel, she has proven to be one of the most vital and resourceful people we have ever partnered with."
Beyond her extensive background as a prosecutor, and her dynamic speaking ability, Rahel’s true value for us lies in the fact that she is a “camp person.” She understands the culture and population of camps (and school). She is keenly aware of the rituals, traditions, and customs they bring, and has the insight to identify areas of weakness that administrators, directors, and owners need to address. As someone who embodies the camp experience, Rahel has a natural ability to get everyone around her—both young staff and seasoned professionals—to buy into the mission of providing a safe and appropriate environment for everyone within the community.
