Your camper will participate in an intensive leadership experience designed to challenge their perspectives and stretch their comfort zone in one fun-filled week with other teens preparing for their future leadership roles. Campers will have the opportunity to lead initiatives, collaborate with their peers, and develop a personal leadership style that aligns with their strengths and values.

Campers will discover the value of working as a team with their peers. They will learn to trust others and develop trustworthiness in themselves and will engage in interactive activities and experiences to explore, develop, and reflect on adaptive leadership, resiliency building, crucial conversations, immunity to change, and various other leadership practices. They will also gain knowledge to reflect on and apply to their own experiences, exploring how to be active leaders for tomorrow.

Camp activities include:

  •                     Develop a deeper understanding of adaptive leadership, resiliency-building practices, immunity to change, and crucial conversations.
  •                     Explore and experiment with how to use leadership as an activity.
  •                     Understand how groups and teams can respond to adaptive challenges.
  •                     Create a personal leadership map of your goals in being an adaptive leader for the common good.
