Leadership Camps are designed to develop confident young adults. Through various team building activities, these camps (designed for ages 12-17) help build confidence in decision-making, enhances communication with team members and creates an inclusive environment in which campers are encouraged to step outside of their comfort zone.
Topics in this program include: group dynamics, communication, cooperative learning, leadership styles, followership and confidence. The week will also include fun group activities, team building opportunities and a hot lunch served in Appleby’s cafeteria.
Our Junior Leaders will end the week by facilitating activities for some of our lucky Discovery campers!
Week 3: July 8 - 12, 2024
Week 5: July 22 - 26, 2024
Week 8: August 12 - 16, 2024
Senior Leadership Campers ages 14-17 years will have the opportunity to enjoy Appleby's Campus overnight. Campers will be dropped off on Sunday afternoon and will have 5 nights to experience Appleby at night. We will have evening programming, early morning activities and days filled with excitement.
Although not a requirement, Senior Leadership Campers will build on the skills learning in Junior Leadership including: group dynamics, communication, cooperative learning, leadership styles, followership and confidence and will also delve deeper into how to apply those skills based on situations and settings. Senior Leadership Campers will also learn about their diverse communities through a one-hour presentation, covering subjects such as the 2SLBTQ+ acronym, pronouns, and other important subjects to ensure that we are serving our diverse camper community with the utmost respect.
The week will include Standard First Aid and CPR-C certification (a requirement to volunteer and/or work at Appleby Camp) along with recreational swim time in our indoor pool, a hot breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and a campfire night.
By the end of the week campers should feel confident in their ability to think quickly, be proactive, be flexible, and have the overnight experience close to home.
Dates: Week 9: Sunday August 18 - Friday August 25, 2023
To help place as many campers into programs (and off of waitlists) as possible, we are introducing changes to the waitlist policy for both March Break and Summer Camp programming. When families are contacted by the Camp Office with news of an available spot in one of their waitlisted camps, they will have the choice to either accept or decline the offer, at which time all other spaces their camper is waitlisted for in that week will be released. Families will no longer have the option to decline one waitlisted spot, in the hope of getting into another camp. So please select your camps (and waitlists) carefully! Thank you for your cooperation in helping us get as many campers in their top choice of programs.
