Leadership Training Program!
This multifaceted program prepares teens for leadership roles both at camp and in their future. LTPs get to choose weekly placements around camp with different age groups, assisting Counsellors, Instructors, Specialists and Swim Instructors. Our program is offered for 4, 6 or 8 weeks with limited two-week availability.
I loved gaining experience on a variety of topics (leadership skills, communication skills) as well as being able to spend time with old friends and make new ones!
Unique to the Green Acres LTP program is the opportunity to earn up to 18 volunteer hours towards their High School requirements. Our LTP Unit Heads work with a variety of charitable organizations that the LTPs can get involved with and volunteer their time. These initiatives take place during camp hours and may be on or off-site.
Our LTPs start off each month with a 2-night leadership trip to Camp Wahanowin (included in the fee). This allows new and returning LTPs an opportunity to get to know each other and create bonds. They get to experience all the amazing facilities and activities at Camp Wahanowin, such as water-skiing, zip-line, tubing, waterpark, trapeze and so much more! In addition, the Unit Heads will facilitate leadership workshops and training sessions to prepare them for their experience as Green Acres LTPs.
I love going to Wahanowin and spending time with my friends and I love becoming so attached to my cabins. I really enjoyed the feeling of being mature and independent and taking leadership roles.
This program provides a great balance of camp placements, training workshops, leadership opportunities, community service initiatives, camp activities and group bonding time. Past LTPs have raved about the program, the friendships and memories they made and how prepared they felt to make the transition to camp staff. Many have become successful Counsellors, Specialists, Swim Instructors and Head Staff!
I loved the fact that everyone was so open and welcoming and even though I’d been there for 12 years… I could still make so many new friends that I could have for a long time.
