Junior Leadership Program
Posted Mar 8, 2018

What is the Junior Leadership Program?      

The Junior Leadership Program is designed to develop responsible leaders who will hopefully return as summer camp leaders some day. While focusing on leadership opportunities available in a group setting, participants are allowed to explore the responsibilities of being a leader and a role model.

The Junior Leadership Program gives participants a good behind the scenes look of summer camp life, and shows them what it’s really like to be a summer camp leader. Junior Leaders will get on the site training where they learn about job responsibilities, teaching skills, appropriate behavior with children and much more! Participants are introduced to developmental assets/life skills and the role that they should play in every interaction with participants and staff. Junior Leaders will spend time “job shadowing” supervisors and helping in the supervision of participants and running of programs. Participants will not only learn the skills needed to be a great summer camp leader, but they will also learn teamwork, how to resolve conflict and build self-confidence.

 

Who is the program for?

This program is designed for the children of working parents who are unable to find other means of care for their child in grades 6-8.  

Although, they are receiving an added leadership role, they are still participants in the program and will follow the rules of the program.  There will be a weekly fee. All participants in the Junior Leadership program have a 3 strike limit and can be “fired” from the position after 3 strikes or one severe incident.

THIS IS NOT A BABYSITTING SERVICE!

The same check in and checkout procedure will be followed as any other participant in the program.  

Participants: 4 total Junior Leaders will be accepted.  Recreation Department reserves the right to allow or disallow any application.

Benefits: Experience working with children plus a small discount off the normal price.  They will receive more free time activities and ability to enjoy a great summer with new friends.

    Rain Day Policy

    Most sites will close if significant rain or thundershowers occur.

    Parents are responsible for picking up their children in the event of rain.

    If rain occurs on a morning before sites open, closings will occur on a site-to-site basis. Site closings are determined by; the amount of rain, the condition of the site, and the facilities available at each site.

    All morning closings will be determined by 8:30 a.m. If the site is to open in the afternoon, this will be determined by 12:30 p.m.
