Leadership 1 is the first phase of the Leadership Development Program. This program is an exciting and intensive 27-day camping experience that is offered only once each summer.

Leadership 1 is designed to teach campers new skills, enhance their self-confidence, and promote team work between campers.

Leadership 1 campers focus on:

  • Building new skills and expanding upon existing skills
  • Enhancing their self-confidence
  • Promoting team work
  • Living in one of four tipis
  • Canoeing
  • Orienteering
  • High ropes
  • A challenging and rewarding canoe outtrip along the shores of the Northumberland Strait
  • The option of doing the second phase – Leadership 2 – the following summer

Leadership 1 is unlike any other program offered at Big Cove YMCA Camp. It’s perfect for those seeking new challenges, adventure, and fun!
