Leadership Camp

Ages 17 and 18 | Offered in Sessions 2 and 3

Learning by Doing

The Celtic Leadership programme allows participants to both study and develop their leadership skills. Two Leadership Directors, chosen from Celtic’s most senior staff and alumni, work closely with groups of Leaders in Training (LITs). Emphasis is placed on group processes, training, coaching skills, and evaluation of self and process. This is very much a participative camp – LITs will get out of it what they put into it!

LITs take part in traditional camp activities such as camp games, campfires, talent shows, out-tripping, and more. This immersive experience supplemented by daily leadership seminars and workshops guarantee a noticeable increase in self-confidence over the 10-day session. In addition, through identifying their own leadership styles, they learn of their ability to uniquely contribute to group processes through routinely examining and assessing themselves, others, and the group. Skills, attitude, and knowledge learned here can be applied not only at camp but at school, work, in the community and in sports environments as well. Each LIT receives a written evaluation at the close of camp, and in the case of sponsored LITs, a copy is mailed to the sponsoring school or camp

Learning By Doing is a philosophy of this programme.
