Campers entering grades 9 & 10
Leadership is the perfect opportunity for a teen who is ready to step up to the next level of day camping and responsibility. Young Leaders learn by doing, gaining skills that make a confident person, an effective member of the community, and a qualified PSDC staff member. We immerse our participants in "hands on workshops" and "real live opportunities" to develop themselves in the areas of public speaking, goal setting, interpersonal and group communication, becoming a committed and enthusiastic leader, and also train for certifications in CPR and first aid. Young leaders will find themselves working with our staff developers and supervisors; at times they will be out in the field, or in the pool or at the beach with our campers. We look first to our Leadership Experience graduates when recruiting staff for the next summer.
This is a 6 week program beginning Monday, July 6 and running through Friday, August 14. The experience includes overnights to Camelbeach Mountain Waterpark and Club Getaway, as well as occasional day trips, all of which are included in the fee.
