Intrepid Leadership Adventure Camps
The week-long in-residence leadership camps will challenge teenagers to meet their potential, enhance their leadership skills and increase self-confidence and resiliency through team building, problem solving and an assortment of other outdoor activities. After the initial block of proper weapons discipline and use, paintball markers are assigned and the teenagers learn tactical first aid, map and compass skills, and basic patrolling techniques so they can accomplish difficult missions as a team. Additionally, the boys receive six hours of combatives training from Rolando Haddad, owner of Core Combat Sports in Louisville. Our teens take the Clifton Strengths-Finder Personality test and results will be used during the week by certified Strength Coaches to highlight individual gifts and skills. Teens are challenged daily with Leadership Reaction Course obstacles to solve problems quickly as a team. Leadership positions are rotated often so everyone gets the opportunity to lead and follow. The game of chess is taught and used to highlight the value of strategy and anticipation. Nightly campfire sessions will focus on ethics, the Nation’s Gold Star Program and other service-related topics.
