Summer Place Leaders in Training

Summer 2024

Leaders in training posing with camper

A leadership training program for students entering grades 10 through 12

At SPLIT, we learn by doing. Campers attend workshops on management and leadership skills, team building, and self-discovery. SPLIT participants also gain hands-on experience working with Summer Place, Li’l Place, and Kinderplace campers.

Each of the SPLIT sessions runs for two weeks. Sessions are built around a different curriculum, and campers leave the program with a greater sense of responsibility and competency, a strong work ethic, and more confidence in their decision-making, leadership skills, and problem-solving abilities.

Session 1 will focus on leadership and character development. Session 2 will focus on community service, including a SPLIT food drive to benefit the West Hartford food pantry. Session 3 will focus on job application and interview strategies, and includes guest speakers who expose the campers to many professional career opportunities. It is important to note that we cover all of these topics throughout the summer, but place more of an emphasis on a specific theme during each focused time period.

Welcome back to how camp should be!
