Why Our Campers Make Great Leaders – Youth Leadership Programs @ Adventure Valley Day Camp

Strong leadership is one of the most important qualities your child can possess. In work, school and in our own family we rely on great leaders and strive to become great ones ourselves. That’s why developing strong leadership skills is the desired outcome for all our young campers, especially the older campers enrolled in youth leadership programs at Adventure Valley.

We provide a safe and fun learning environment that can be very advantageous to both new campers and those looking to step up in a leadership role. Our head staff, group leaders, activity leaders, and members of our trainee and apprenticeship programs are all trained to bring out the best out of everyone and inspire our campers to become leaders themselves.

How Our Leaders and Campers Foster Leadership Skills Together Through Fun

youth leadership programsWhether your child is a younger camper or looking to become a camp leader themselves, there are many opportunities to develop positive leader traits. Over the course of our summer day camp your children will:

  • be encouraged to think for themselves.
  • learn to make good choices.
  • set goals and achieve them.
  • strategize and develop their own plans
  • become great problem solvers
  • learn to take responsibility
  • experience success and celebrate the success of others
  • learn to not only work in groups, but also take the lead.

Each of our summer activities and programs will encourage children to work on developing these valuable assets – all while having a blast with our fun summer activities!

Trainee Program

Apprenticeship Program

Grade 9

Are you looking to become a leader while earning your high school community service hours? Our Youth Leadership Apprenticeship Program will help you get your hours, while having fun, and put your foot in the door for future employment opportunities!

The Benefits of Our Youth Leadership Programs

Our Trainee program gives campers in grades 7 and 8 the opportunity to sharpen their leadership skills in a fun and safe environment. Grade 9 students enter our apprenticeship program and begin the transition from camper to staff.

Boosts Your Resume

Whether you’re applying for school or your first job, you can expect a lot of competition. Having a thin resume could also be very deflating. By showing you have the leadership skills learned at summer camp, as well as the many qualifications that come with it, you can set yourself apart from the competition. After completing our apprenticeship programs, you will become a shoe-in for future camp counselor positions.

Great Opportunities

You get to experience what being a leader is all about. You also get the opportunity to learn special skills such as standard First Aid, CPR, Bronze Medallion swimming certification, and more. Great certifications that also look great on a resume.

Boost Your Confidence
