Leadership Development Camp (Ages 16-17)

Sessions 3 & 4

July 7 – July 19, 2018

The Leadership Development Camp is a two-week program geared towards the oldest adolescent campers.  Those interested in gaining a basic understanding of summer camp operations and youth development. LDC’s assist counselors in all areas of camp life, including the monitoring of cabin life and the planning and teaching of activities and programs. This program enhances adolescents’ leadership skills, while providing them with a high level of responsibility and multiple opportunities for personal growth. Additional skills include communication, conflict-resolution, decision-making, self-awareness, and teamwork. The LDC Program is the perfect opportunity for older adolescents to grow within a supportive, summer camp environment. It is designed to give them the competence and confidence to become leaders in any type of environment.
