Programme Overview

Following the long-standing success of our Leadership Training Camp, Village Camps is pleased to introduce our new Learning To Lead (LTL) programme in our Austria Camp. For 3 hours every weekday morning the LTL campers will participate in activities that teach leadership, team building, responsibility and independence.

A series of international motivational and educational speakers, will give the campers opportunities to develop their leadership skills as well as beginning to understand goal setting and how to achieve result in ways that are relatable to 13 and 15-year olds.

Presentations with subjects like goal setting, the importance of believing in yourself, self-confidence and positive leadership will open the participants eyes to new ideas and potentials.

Specific LTL activities include

Summer Camp International motivational speakers presentations
Summer Camp Games designed to challenge, develop and improve leadership skills
Summer Camp Working together as a team to in team-building exercises
Summer Camp Working with counsellors leading younger campers

The afternoons and evenings are spent with campers from the other programmes participating in a variety of fun and exciting activities.

More traditional camp activities take a different twist as we assign and discuss the values of different parts of the activities. Campers learn to facilitate change in their own lives, and we encourage responsibility by working with them to create expectations of behaviour and desired outcomes from camp and life in general. We develop goals and strategies for achieving these goals in an exciting and engaging way.
