This LEAD is a 2-week leadership program for youth going into grade 10, 11 or 12 who are interested in learning about leadership, developing interpersonal skills, and learning how to take initiative in a group environment.
This program puts an emphasis on personal responsibility, teamwork, and communication skills. LEAD Participants are introduced to the camp work environment through supervised shadow placements and developing program modules for the general camp program.
Additionally, we have a modified LEAD program for campers with mild special needs or learning disabilities, those who need a slower paced program. This is a pilot program and we welcome all input. To register please contact our Director, Alyssa Light, directly at email@example.com or by calling 519 998 2646. This program will take place from August 2-12.
3 weeks $500
This 3-week program, for campers going into grade 11 or 12, offers in-depth leadership skill development useful in school, community, and work environments. LEAD2 campers will embark on a multi-day canoe trip down the Saugeen River, lead by a qualified tripper.
This program provides leadership modules in a variety of skill areas; group management strategies, program planning and implementation, hands-on support and child care strategies. With advanced placements in a variety of roles throughout the camp, participants will develop skills useful for working at camp and in future employment opportunities. Successful graduates will be eligible to apply for employment at McGovern the following year.
any camper interested in the LEAD, Modified LEAD, or Lead2 programs must complete and return an additional questionnaire.
