Teaching children confidence and the value in helping others

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!

What are leadership camps?

Leadership summer camps

At leadership camps, not only will your child discover lifelong lessons and improve their self-confidence and independence, but they’ll also have the chance to teach and guide other children.

Why attend a leadership camp?

Leadership programs encourage your child's natural skills and help them work on any areas that may need further improvement through counsellor and peer support.

While some camps may be religious-oriented, others may focus on supportive skills through sports or team activities that foster cooperation, discussion and understanding through problem-solving and constructive feedback.

Find the right leadership camp for your child

When considering a leadership camp, ask directors and staff about all aspects that interest your family, including the camp’s values, daily life, programs, fees and safety procedures.

The following are some additional questions you may want to ask:

  • Do you look for natural leadership talents in potential campers?
  • What types of activities will engage my child and promote leadership skills?
  • Are there certain activities or sessions my child can participate in to develop a specific skill? (For example, public speaking)
  • What are the camper to staff ratios?
  • Are counsellors able to focus on children who may need some extra help or encouragement?

Just as leadership comes in many different forms so do camps! Start your search for the right leadership training opportunities and activities for your child with the listings below.
