White jumpsuits, lego, and torrential rain... The best recipe for a Leadership Camp!
Every year, CYC Youth Workers help facilitate the Whangaparaoa College Leadership Camp. The intention of the camp is to develop the new leaders of the school, and identify the prefects for the year ahead.
This year it was held at the Red Beach Surf Life Saving Club. Approximately 30 students attended- along with three of our Youth Workers and school staff.
Libby (24-7 Youth Worker) reports...
"Leadership camp is a really good space for people to display their natural leadership skills without having the pressure of having to prove themselves or try and put on a performance.
This year, I got to join in on the full day workshop that happened during the school holidays. It was a fun day and everyone learnt a little bit more about themselves, about their peers, and about leadership. I had a great time getting to know some of the Year 12’s that I haven’t had much to do with, as my usual focus is on intermediates.
I had the chance to join one of the groups as they went through a series of activities. This was a really good opportunity to see close up how everyone worked together and to see who naturally stood out amongst the group. Overall the day was highly successful, despite getting drenched in the rain- haha!"
