Leaders in Training Camp

Our leaders in training program (LIT) focuses on establishing 6 key skills to assist youth in developing their own sense of self awareness and providing them with the tools needed to build a solid foundation for personal growth. It is designed for the maturing individual that desires to be involved with the day to day operation of running the camps.  Understanding the responsibility of a leader and given opportunity to be actively involved with all the different camps that we offer to assist with delivering curriculum games and crafts.  Ages 13yr and up 

Our program provides a supportive environment which focuses on establishing skills in the following areas, creating the building blocks of a confident leader.

  1. Assertiveness – Learning to be assertive in a healthy way using initiative and direction, rather than resorting to bullying tactics.
  2. Emotional Awareness – Exploring their own emotional responses as well as those of their peers, reflecting on resulting behaviors and non-verbal cues.
  3. Stress Tolerance – Embracing exposure to horses, being larger animals who can often lead to feelings of anxiety or intimidation, we work to overcome and cope with uncomfortable situations and vulnerability.
  4. Self Empowerment – Many youth struggle with self esteem and sense of value, causing insecurities to thrive. Overcoming obstacles and tackling new skills builds confidence and empowers them to master other aspects of their own growth.
  5. Problem-Solving Skills – Working through various tasks arranged within the program allows opportunities for youth to examine the best attitude  with which to approach problems at hand. This requires creativity, thinking, and leadership.
  6. Interpersonal Relationships – Our small groups and small counsellor to youth ratio provides a nonjudgmental safe place for youth to build trust and explore effective interpersonal skills while fostering strong relationships with others.

Fun highlights in the week could include, mantracker, riding lesson, horse trail and a grounded EAL session.
