Leadership Academy

Camp Kanuga's Leadership Academy is a Christian leadership development program with Service Hour opportunities for high school teens going into 11th or 12th grade. Participants spend the first part of the experience in leadership development and training which equips campers with the skills they need to become Counselors-in-Training (CITs). During weeks two and three, participants transition from training to CIT. Applying the skills and techniques acquired during training, CITs gain real world experience facilitating high-quality programming for elementary-aged campers. Participants assist with meal prep and cleanup in the dining hall. Each night the team debriefs to discuss their experiences to integrate training, practices, and leadership skills into their daily lives.
