Ignite Junior Leadership Camp

Ignite’s Junior Leadership Camp is a great opportunity for rising 6th grade - rising 9th grade students to further develop their leadership and communication skills. The students will gain experience instructing lesson plans, working with kids, academic & career awareness, financial literacy and community involvement under the assistance of an Ignite Kids Club Camp Counselor. Every student will develop and build on skills such as teamwork, communication, setting goals and making plans to achieve them. They will also gain confidence and pride while learning to present and lead in small groups and how to effectively work with children.

Our program is set to build self esteem, promote effective communicators and develop critical thinking skills all while encouraging leadership, responsibility, maturity and teamwork. At the end of the Junior Leadership Camp students will graduate from the program, receive a letter of recommendation and have the opportunity to be employed by Ignite Kids Club as a Summer Camp Counselor once they reach 16 years of age.

Once a week Jr Leadership will participate in a 2 hour seminar structured class. Each class will incorporate various teaching methods to include hands-on learning, worksheets, power point presentations, individual research and team building activities.
