Collaborate & Think Creatively
Want to master the skills that will help you thrive in college and eventually, the professional world? Come to camp! Every week, you’ll enjoy interactive training sessions that focus on “21st Century Skills.” These go far beyond learning how to shake a hand or making a good first impression (though we’ll cover that too!).
So what are “21st Century Skills?” Researchers recently canvassed top American companies, such as Apple, Lego, and AT&T, to understand what attributes their happiest and most successful employees shared. Not surprisingly (to us at least!) collaboration, creative thinking, taking initiative, having an effective leadership style, and being responsible came out on top. We think it’s no coincidence that these are exactly the life skills fostered by the camp experience!
While all campers gain these skills through their summer experience, we created a series of interactive sessions just for teens to learn to develop and apply the skills in camp, outside of camp, and in the future.
