4 SPECIALTY CAMPS FOR TEENAGERS
Youth Leadership Camp
For ages 12 to 16 – during 13th January to 17th January 2020
Our vision at Camp Cooby is to help young people be leaders for themselves, others, and the environment. We have been fortunate enough to be running now for 3 years and over this time have been witness to the growth and development of our returning campers. Recently we have noticed a growing demand from our campers and their families to gain experience and development in youth leadership positions. It is for this reason that we have developed our Youth Leaders Summer Camp. The aim of this camp is to give our older campers (12 – 16 years of age) the opportunity to engage in their own ‘senior’ camp experience for the duration of their stay with others who have a similar interest to grow, share experiences, and make memories as leaders.
Our Youth Leaders Summer Camp is a 3 – 5 day program designed to strengthen the passion and abilities of those who find themselves wanting to make a difference in our community. Over the course of the program, our aim is to equip your aspiring young leaders with tangible, important life learnings, tools, ideas, and skills that they can use to positively impact the world around them. On days 4 and 5 of the camp, those who stay for the week will also get the chance to support in the delivery of our junior Holiday Program and implement some of the skills that they have learnt throughout the week.
