Welcome to the next level in your SuperCamp journey. Leadership Forum is the ultimate leadership and life skills program designed for students who have completed at least one year of either Junior Forum or Senior Forum SuperCamp and who will enter 10th grade or higher in fall 2019.
Leadership Forum is a transformational seven-day program for teens that are ready to challenge themselves by embarking on the path of leadership. Building on their previous SuperCamp experience, Leadership Forum dives deeper into the 8 Keys of Excellence and focuses on:
Leadership Forum challenges students physically, mentally, and emotionally in a safe and inclusive atmosphere where they set their own goals, and facilitate their own learning in an experiential setting.
Leadership is a mindset critical to success in the world today. Leadership Forum (“LeFo”) is focused on the skills and strategies teens need to be stand-out leaders in school, at home and in other areas of their lives. The goal of this program is to help students find their authentic leadership style.
Students continue their personal success journey at Leadership Forum within the context of learning the traits of a successful leader. We will inspire students to stretch themselves beyond their existing comfort zone and to believe in their own ability to succeed, build strong teams and lead others.
Effective communication and listening are must-have qualities of any good leader. At LeFo, campers will build upon the communication skills they acquired at SuperCamp by learning how they can include the four principles of powerful communication in their role as a leader and in those they lead.
Breaking through self-imposed personal fears and limitations is a vital learning and growth experience for students. Topics include risk-taking, trust, comfort zone vs. learning zone, and setting goals that reflect personal values and beliefs. Students participate in an outdoor challenge course and a barrier breaking activity, both of which produce strong feelings that they are capable of doing anything they set their mind to.
Another core component of SuperCamp, the 8 Keys of Excellence, is also integrated into all aspects of Leadership Forum. The fact that great leaders are defined by their character will be driven home to students in the LeFo program. All 8 Keys will be explored from the perspective of a leader.
Leadership and life skills training is balanced with fun at LeFo. From team activities to free time and meal time, students enjoy their interactive opportunities with fellow campers and staff. Another favorite is Outdoor Adventure Day, which we schedule on day four of this seven-day program.
