Leadership Training (LT) is a big step up from Senior Year. LT is focused on character development.
LTs are expected to oversee and staff the Camp Post Office, Oasis snack shack, and the Adopt-a-Cabin program. These responsibilities come with many inherent challenges that stretch young leaders, providing meaningful opportunities for growth.
Each LT goes through the rigorous process of becoming a certified American Red Cross Lifeguard, a 32-hour course that includes CPR for the Professional Rescuer. LTs who successfully complete the course will leave with the certifications and abilities to apply for lifeguarding jobs back home.
LTs spend their days mentoring their cabin in the Adopt-a-Cabin program, taking lifeguard courses and tests, sorting and delivering mail, running and cleaning up the Oasis snack shack, and assisting the Work Crew campers with evening program set-up and breakdown. It’s a lot!
The LT program brings in inspirational speakers who share information on preparing for college, goal-setting, healthy lifestyle guidelines, and the importance of faith in making major life decisions.
