Our leadership-themed camp delves into the qualities that make a good leader. Throughout our program, we will explore various leaders from different spheres of life, ranging from friends and family to community, government, business, religious, creative, and historical figures. Through engaging discussions, interactive activities, and thought-provoking exercises, participants will gain valuable insights into the characteristics that define effective leadership.

Participants will learn the importance of:

communication, empathy, integrity, and resilience in effective leadership. By examining the successes and failures of different leaders, we will encourage critical thinking and the development of analytical skills.

Some of the leaders we may discuss:

  • Sophie Germain
  • Mahatma Gandhi
  • Florence Nightengale
  • John F Kennedy
  • Mother Teresa
  • Dolly Parton
  • George Washington
  • Martin Luther King Jr
  • Jesus (from a historical perspective)

  • & More!

Our program will also delve into the historical context of leadership, examining the lives and accomplishments of prominent figures who have shaped our world. By studying their leadership styles, participants will gain insights into timeless leadership principles and explore how these can be applied to their own lives.

In addition to the structured activities, the camp will provide opportunities for participants to interact with guest speakers, who may include community leaders, business executives, or individuals who have made significant contributions in their respective fields. These interactions will provide real-world perspectives and inspire participants to become agents of change in their own communities.

At the end of the camp, participants will not only have a deeper understanding of the characteristics that make a good leader but will also have developed practical skills and gained confidence in their own leadership abilities. They will leave with a strong foundation for personal growth and a heightened awareness of the positive impact they can make on the world around them.
