If the idea of your son or daughter learning to develop their character while helping, leading and inspiring others sounds like the perfect opportunity then a leadership camp may be right for them!
Do you love camp, outdoor living and adventure pursuits? Are you in senior secondary school or older and looking to stand out from the crowd? Are you seeking your next personal challenge? Excel Edu Youth Leadership Training has a couple of programs that will allow you to learn to lead others:
Leadership Training Camp is a 5D4N weekdays programme for schools looking to provide Year 9-11 students with an introduction to leadership skills, first-aid and safety, games, briefing/debriefing, camp set-up/break down, public speaking, ‘what makes’ a good leader, organisational and team skills, encouraging and problem solving and reflections. Initially designed for schools where upper year students return to serve as assistant leaders to lower year camps, the learning is transferable to wider school peer leadership and this camp is now used by some schools as a stand-alone training. Students who complete the training are able to log their hours for action and service when they come to camp.
