The Bank Street Summer Camp has expanded and redesigned the Leaders in Training program into a comprehensive environment for young tweens and teens to learn from and engage with a progressive environment conducive to working with children.
The Leadership Development Program is designed to split the time between learning how to become effective leaders and counselors, as well as spend time as a senior camper. Participants will learn skills for working in and with small groups of campers and some tricks of the trade, such as games, songs and activities, all of which will start their personal portfolio of skills. Participants will learn how to interview as well as develop a strong resume.
From the first year program, participants will have the skills to become a lifeguard, work at Bank Street Summer Camp, or a different camp, and translate their new skill set into other jobs or other positions of responsibility. At the end of the course they will receive a certificate of completion as well as an evaluation.
Participants must attend all 5 weeks unless previously accepted with a separate arrangement.
