Leader in Training (14-16 years)

Teens ages 14 to 16 gain leadership skills and volunteer experience as Leaders in Training in the Camper Cubs, Bull Frogs, Grasshoppers, Sea Turtles, and Sunshine Kids Day Camps. Skills to be an effective day camp leader will be taught. Each two-week session includes training in game leadership, program planning, leading camp songs, participant safety procedures, field trip supervision, and job interview techniques.

Leader In Training participants will experience first hand camp leadership as they work alongside day camp leaders, help supervise campers on a field trip, and assist in the organization of the Friday all camp sing-a-long.
