Leadership 2 is the second phase of the Leadership Development Program. Leadership 2 is a 27-day leadership training program designed for successful graduates of the Leadership 1 program, or those with prior leadership experience. Like the Leadership 1 program, Leadership 2 is only offered once each summer.

Participants will have the opportunity to work directly with groups of campers under the supervision of experienced camp staff, and experience a 12-day paddle to Prince Edward Island with on-trip instruction. Leadership 2 campers will be sleeping in one of four tipis while they are on Camp grounds.

The Leadership 2 program focuses on the development of:

  • Camp-counselling
  • Teaching
  • Programming
  • Communication skills

Many of our Leadership 2 graduates are able to use skills learned during Leadership 2 to become Big Cove YMCA Camp staff. The Leadership 2 program is application based. The application deadline for Leadership 2 was January, 3, 2017  and registration is now closed for this program.
