The curriculum focuses on leadership skills, knowledge, and dispositions, which are also executive functioning skills that can become more complicated for adolescents as they yearn for more independence.
Each day ended with a community-based internship with a local leader or entrepreneur. We were lucky to have access to our Northampton mayor, Chamber of Commerce, and network of women who welcomed our campers and served as role models (and future connections). Campers will be sent a menu of options for internships prior to the start of camp so their internship experience can be individualized based on their passions and interests.
SWAG: Community Classroom t-shirt, journal, pen, name badge, framed photo, collage, and graduation gift.
Each week will culminate in a graduation Leadership Summit at the top of Mount Tom (recorded for caregivers).
Leadership Campers will have access to several optional activities as well, including developing and participating in a segment for WWLP News Channel 22’s Mass Appeal and an event with the Greater Northampton Chamber of Commerce.
