Leadership II is the second phase of the Leadership Development Program. L2 is a 27-day leadership training program designed for successful graduates of the Leadership I program, or those with prior leadership experience. Similar to the Leadership I program, Leadership II is only offered once each summer.

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

The Leadership II program focuses on the development of:

  • Camp-Counseling
  • Teaching
  • Programming
  • Communication skills

Many of our Leadership II graduates are able to use skills learned during Leadership II to become YMCA Big Cove Camp staff. The Leadership 2 program is application based. Applications for summer 2017 should be submitted by Jan. 3, 2017. Please click here to learn more about the programs offered at Big Cove YMCA Camp.
