Nature Summer Camp: Leadership Training
July 12—8:30 am - 3:00 pm$635 – $695
Leadership Training Camp (LTC) has been evolving over the years to continue to meet the growing needs of older and returning campers. Think of LTC as the next step in Hitchcock Camps, where new leaders are developing their skills as naturalists, activity leaders, outdoorspeople, and community members. LTC is designed both for those who want to be a Counselor-in-Training or Junior Counselor at Hitchcock or other camps, and those who just want a chance to develop leadership skills that can apply to school and in life. We will continue to incorporate favorite games, challenges, and activities from years past, and to add in new ones. LTC will involve a number of field trips, such as rock climbing, a ropes course, and hiking, as well as an overnight camping experience. While LTC is designed to be active, we also take time to talk about our experiences and how they help us to become better leaders. We’ll practice what we learn with each other and younger campers. New this year will be what we’re calling “spirals.” The spirals represent how often you have been an LTC camper (spiral 1 for 1st year campers, spiral 2, for 2nd year campers, etc.) and will hold slightly different expectations/skills at each spiral. LTC is designed for all Hitchcock campers aged 12-14 (entering 7th, 8th, and 9th grades) looking to learn what it takes to lead others in the outdoors, and we’ll have lots of fun in the process!
