- Don't second guess one another: the way one counselor teaches a game and the rules they present may not perfectly gel with the opinions of every counselor, but what's more important is to present a united front. Modeling unity and collegiality is more important than the need to "have it your way" - after all, it's just a game.
- Be confident and concise: winding instructions lose people's attention, confuse them, or both.
- Be quick on your feet: when it's time for camp to ask questions about the rules, sometimes the teacher has to field questions about things they hadn't considered before, or strange questions filled with what ifs and buts. The counselor has to keep in mind the spirit of the game, and sometimes make up rules.
- Everyone who's not teaching should sit: there's sometimes a restless urge for counselors who aren't teaching to stand around the perimeter of the sitting campers while the game is taught. It's best to resist this urge. Counselors should sit with their campers to model that the counselors are co-learners with their campers and encourage their engagement.
