THE EXTREME TEAM PROCESS

 

Our Extreme Team Program is designed for campers 13 to 15. We have an Extreme Team instructor who implements the  leadership course and manages the program. Campers who register for the Extreme Team Program will be involved in a two-week camp program with designed activities and experiences for this age group.

Campers can register for multiple two-week sessions. The content of the program will change each year, so if your child has been involved previously, they will gain additional leadership techniques.

A Group Lead Opportunity

 

Before a teacher becomes a teacher, they must gain experience as a student teacher in a classroom. We offer a similar opportunity. We allow a few fifteen-year-old members their own group during a camp week. This is not a paid position but can lead to one. We choose Extreme Team members who we would consider for a position on our staff for the following summer. This gives them an opportunity to gain valuable group management skills and allows us to see them in action.

The Program

Our leadership programs are designed to draw out the best in each Extreme Team member and to help them recognize that every person has something positive to offer.

Extreme Team members arrive at camp at 7:50 a.m. They spend from 8:00 a.m. to 9:30 a.m. each morning involved in team-building activities and learning leadership techniques. From 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. they work with campers along side one of our senior staff members. They fully emerged in the camp program. We make learning fun!

They are led by our Senior Staff, caring mentors and role models that can guide Extreme Team members to strive to be their best, gain confidence, and encourage others to be the best they can be. Good leadership is ultimately about asking: what can I do to help myself and the world around me?

Our Extreme Team LIT Program will build confidence and motivate members to gain the hard skills and discipline needed to become effective leaders/camp counsellors.
