Teen Programs - SSL Camps
The Summer Leadership Challenge and Junior Counselor programs have replaced the old Counselor in Training Program. Two tiers of participation are offered to provide increased guidance, support and in-depth training to new volunteers and to offer a great service opportunity to our returning volunteers. Camps will not meet on July 4th.

 

Teen Programs - SSL Camps

Summer Leadership Challenge (SLC) Summer Leadership Challenge is a service learning program for teens who enjoy helping children learn and have fun in a safe environment. The program offers fun, interactive workshops, games and activities designed to prepare teens to volunteer and/or work in a camp environment. Workshops may include child development, safety, conflict resolution, body language, planning and leading games, and therapeutic recreation awareness. Participants will have opportunities to plan activities and practice their new skills with campers in an MCRD camp or Summer Fun Center. Summer Leadership Challenge staff will provide instruction, support, supervision and feedback to help participants have a positive experience. No prior experience or training is necessary. This service learning opportunity replaces the CIT program for new volunteers. (Returning CITs are eligible to register for the Junior Counselor Program!) Up to 20 teens can register per session. Participants may earn up to 35 SSL hours per session. No transportation is available.



The Junior Counselor Training is a great opportunity for returning volunteers to build on their experiences from the previous summer and get ready for a new summer of leadership and fun. To be eligible to participate in the Junior Counselor Program, you must have successfully completed the Summer Leadership Challange Program or have been a CIT, Mainstream Companion or TR Camp Assistant last year. The workshop will focus on leadership skills, conflict resolution, communication skills and provide an overview of the summer experience and the expectations for Junior Counselors. This is a mandatory training. Student Service Learning hours may be earned upon successful completion of the training.
