Completed Gr. 8
RISE LEADERSHIP PROGRAM | co-ed | two week sessions
Whether you’ve been coming to camp for a while, or this is your first IAWAH summer, we have a leadership program designed especially for campers aged 13-14. The RISE Program is an introduction to YDLP (Youth Development & Leadership Program), where campers can participate in all the fun stuff camp has to offer, but also be involved in a supervised leadership role. Grow in self-confidence and independence as you work in a team to help create and run some awesome camp programs, or work alongside some of our experienced cabin leaders as you help lead our Jump Start campers in daily activities and program. The RISE Program offers valuable experience in the area of leadership, personal growth and independence within a strong community of friendship and support.
A TWO-WEEK PROGRAM
During week one, RISE will be a part of regular camp with some added unique sessions and programs in the afternoons and evenings. On Saturday – when the rest of the camp has gone home – the group will have their own special program providing more time to bond together as a team and receive training for the week to come.
Week two sees these young leaders experiencing what it’s like to lead some of our Jump Start campers, as well as help our program team develop and execute some awesome all-camp games and activities. Campers will be housed in the Tabin village and/or one of the cabin villages.
