SCHOLARSHIP OPPORTUNITY: 2019 FUTURE LEADERS SCHOLARSHIP

Every summer, a staff member comes through your camp that has a life changing experience. The kind of experience that sows the seeds for their future. They seek opportunities for leadership and have a desire to understand the ins and outs of how camp works. Many times, these staff members seek guidance from you about how to become a full-time camping professional and we want to help!

Continuing in 2019 we will be offering the conference at a lower cost to students that have the desire to pursue a career in camping. We hope to assist your camp in investing in your future leaders by providing scholarship funds to cover a portion of their conference costs.

Please direct any financial assistance and scholarship questions to Aaron Zerkle at AaronZ@ymcaatlanta.org.

 

REGISTRATION FOR DEVELOPING FUTURE RESIDENT CAMP EXECUTIVES COURSE

Sunday January 13 from 10 am – 5 pm

This course is intended to help emerging YMCA leaders grow in their youth development careers through resident camping programs. In this course, participants will identify the key competencies needed to be successful as an executive director in a YMCA resident camp and will determine their own professional development opportunities as they gain insight into the role and responsibilities of camp leadership. 

After exploring key leadership competencies, participants will be prompted to complete a development plan, identify a mentor and begin an experience-based assignment, and summarize the progress of their development.

This course is a 6-week commitment and is one step in a future camp executive director’s career development journey.
