Middle School Summer Leadership Camps
Through hands-on experiences and interactive classes, campers learn elements of leadership that enhance their ability to make valuable contributions to their families, teams, and communities. The middle school summer camp introduces and reinforce the values of honor, integrity, respect, responsibility, compassion, and gratitude at the highest level.
OFFERING AN INTRODUCTION TO LEADERSHIP
Summer at the Academy offers an Introduction to leadership for campers driven to explore their potential and learn the fundamentals of citizenship. Campers gain invaluable life skills through fun activities and adventure-based challenges that reinforce teamwork, accountability, discipline, and respect.
