Educating, Engaging and Empowering the Young Leaders of Wisconsin
Whether you’re involved in student council, the national honor society, the drama club, a sports team, the school musical, cheerleading, or your local FFA — our camp program is for you! In fact, our camp programs are for anyone who wants to improve their leadership skills! We have three camps for Junior & Middle School (JAM) students and four camps for Senior High School (SHS) students.
Sign up for one summer — or prepare to attend the entire multi-year series. We believe that every moment spent with WASC is a good one. Our time-tested curriculum has been developed by certified educators, and has made a positive impact in the lives of over 100,000+ of Wisconsin’s students.
SHS Camps: Levels 4, 5 & 6 — June 28 - July 2, 2020
JAM Camps: Levels 1, 2 & 3 — July 12-16, 2020
Camp Reunion: TBA
During the Level 1 experience, students will participate in fun activities focused on skills essential for the middle level including: building self-esteem and self-advocacy skills, learning what it means to be a leader, and ways to create exciting and interesting student activities.
Team building, goal setting, communication, and organization are key components to being an engaged leader. Participants at this level will have the opportunity to explore concepts of leadership, improve their leadership skills in a creative, engaged way, and gain a better understanding of self and sensitivity to others.
Entering high school confident and ready is essential to student success. The Level 3 curriculum combines experiential learning with essential skill development to ensure this success. Students will learn valuable skills like self-advocacy, effective communication, and goal setting – in a creative and engaging way. These skills will serve as a strong foundation as they enter high school.
A positive high school experience hinges on developing essential leadership skills. This high school program is designed for students who want to learn the necessary skills to become a leader in their school or increase their effectiveness as a leader. Level 4 curriculum is high-energy and focused on developing interpersonal skills, group processes, communication skills, problem solving techniques and planning/evaluation procedures.
Responsibilities continue to increase for high school students: at school, at a job, in the sports arena, or at home. Student leaders need the ability to adapt to a variety of circumstances depending on the demands of the group or task. The Level 5 curriculum examines what causes this range of needs and gives participants the skills to adapt and react to each. The result will empower delegates to recognize which style of leadership is most appropriate in any given circumstance, leading them to success.
This culminating program provides opportunities to revisit all ten of our leadership standards. With a special emphasis on character and ethical decision-making, delegates will utilize a self-directed approach to practicing essential skills needed for life in high school and beyond. Through numerous activities, they will expand their reach to include not only their school organizations, but also to their communities, and perhaps, to the world.
For our camps, students will be led by education professionals in activities dedicated to understanding what it means to be a leader. With proven curriculum as the foundation, and unparalleled talent leading each camp, delegates agree that this program is “the most significant learning experience in my life to-date!”
Whether you’re a camp veteran or a talented newbie — we’ve got the right program for you!
