13-15 years old
The Leadership program includes three levels: L1, L2 and CIT – L3. Campers must be at least 13 years old to enroll in L1 and at least 14 years old to enroll in L2. Our CIT – L3 level (counsellor-in-training) is reserved for campers 15 years old or over. The Leadership program introduces concepts such as child development and psychology, as well as bullying prevention in a team spirit oriented environment.
Leaders will work directly with Supercamp’s experienced counsellors, and will have the opportunity to animate activities in groups with campers. Leadership also organizes and builds camp-wide projects.
Why take part in our Leadership program?
- Experience working with children ages 5-12,
- Daily team and skill-building sessions and mentoring,
- First step towards being a camp counsellor,
- Graduates can begin working at camp from the age of 16.
We are very proud of our Leadership program. It truly prepares the campers to take on more leadership and to become excellent role models. It is our contribution for a new generation of well-prepared counsellors!
13 year olds and over
This level introduces the leaders to camp’s general procedures, animation techniques and also includes animation workshops. With at least two hours a week among the groups, L1s will learn about group dynamics led by an experienced counsellor. This program is perfect for participants to gain more confidence in their skills and in themselves.
14 year olds and older
This level deepens the notions seen in L1 with an added emphasis on child psychology, intervention techniques and the uniqueness of each child. With at least a whole day a week among the groups, L2s become comfortable co-animating and taking in charge of a group during a regular day or camp-wide activities. This level is a preparatory step towards the CIT- L3 level.
CIT – L3
15 year olds and older
Levels L1 and L2 are prepatory to our CIT training, but are not mandatory to complete CIT – L3.
CIT – L3 is composed of 4 segments: Theory 1 & 2 and Stage 1 & 2. Each segment must be completed in this order to graduate the program. These sessions can be done consecutively or can be broken up throughout the summer. Theory 2 and Theory 1 thoroughly explore the ideas and knowledge to ensure a safe, efficient and fun animation. Stage 1 is a week of co-animation with an experienced counsellor. During Stage 2, leaders take complete charge of a group of children, supervised by our counsellors at all times. We highly recommend completion of the program would be done in one summer.
