True strength comes from within the individual. The times in which we live require that we develop courage to stand up for what is right, what is healthy, and what will protect your child. We cannot live a courageous life until we are introduced to courageous stories and people. Our young people must have something to model after.
Teamwork & Communication
The ability to function in a team atmosphere is an invaluable asset. Our course not only provides fun-filled activities, but we intentionally focus on what we call “Peer Praise” – the ability for youth to recognize and praise the strengths in their peers. Learning to communicate thoughts and feelings is an obstacle young leaders strive to overcome. Each activity is followed by a debrief.
Camp will offer diverse perspectives to your child on the world that surrounds them in order to develop empathy (not sympathy) for what it is like to walk in someone else’s shoes. What is it like to be poor, to be sad, lonely, to be bullied, to struggle? In contrast, what is it like to be a leader, and how can a leader combat injustice?
Highlights that make this a unique experience…
- Diversity: Students from multiple schools, ages and backgrounds come together to learn how to become better leaders.
- Our Leadership. Under the personal direction or Pivotal Directions, Inc. students will be inspired to become a “difference maker”. Our high school peer leaders and college leaders model lives of servant leadership that our campers will want to emulate.
- We blend a variety of engaging activities in a fun atmosphere in order to challenge our students to learn what abilities they posses and which they can work on.
- Spectacular facilities: Concordia University’s Concordia Center for Environmental Stewardship facility and beautiful lakefront on Lake Michigan in Mequon, Wisconsin. For those continuing on for the full week will explore the natural beauty of the Mequon Nature Preserve while mentoring youth from Milwaukee.
Each summer middle school students come together to be inspired from around the Greater Milwaukee Area to learn about servant leadership and develop bridges between communities, and… have tons of healthy, fun!
