What is Leadership Camp? It is designed to help council members develop their leadership skills to be a more effective officer or council member in their schools. It is a training camp. It is a place for students to learn ideas from other leaders from across the state that they can use in their own schools. It is a chance to learn silly songs that will bond friendships!
What we will cover during camp? 1. Problem solving techniques: brainstorming, research, using resources effectively. 2. Leadership skills: listening, responding and overcoming blocks to communication, dealing with different audiences, conducting meetings. 3. Human relations skills: Keeping a group together, conflict management, increasing awareness of cultural diversity, relationships with community outside school. 4. Organization skills: parliamentary procedure, agenda preparation, roles in groups, assigning tasks, delegating responsibility. 5. Officer training: just what are the responsibilities of each office
A Typical Day At Camp Delegates will be assigned to a council and will work to solve an assigned problem, create cheers and chants, develop a council skit and design a council flag. Each day, delegates will also attend skills sessions taught by our experienced staff members, meet with their council, attend electives, enjoy free time and have the opportunity to participate in a talent show, field day and camp parade. Throughout, the week delegates are able to network, make lasting friends, bond as a family and make memories that will last a lifetime.
