Be a leader Activities - Trips

We want to give you an unforgettable summer bursting with fun, adventure and equipping you with skills that will stick with you for life. This is why our leisure programme is filled with unique and interesting  trips, the CPD accredited Be a leader programme.  We are going to show Canada as you've never seen it before, as well as taking you the top tourist must-sees.   

Be a Leader

As part of your Academic Camp Canada  experience, you will participate in our world-class Be a Leader Programme. Whether you are a natural-born leader or someone that prefers to support the team in the background, we will develop your skill set to help you reach your Personal Best. We work together to discover and develop your communication, negotiation, problem-solving and presentation skills. We want you to be happy, confident and able to undertake tasks you never thought yourself capable of doing. When you successfully complete the course, you will even receive  an accredited CPD qualification to show the world your achievements.


Be a Leader helps you to:

  •  gain a CPD accredited qualification,
  •  develop your leadership skills,
  •  challenge you to try something new & put down your mobile device,
  •  grow in confidence,
  • improve your communication skills,
  •  have fun & have new experiences,
  • make friends from over the world & get to know your camp counsellors.

Be a Leader allows you to develop your leadership skills in a safe, fun and stimulating environment. The 20-hour course is spread across the 2-week camp and covers vital skills required of a good team player or leader.  

 

Every morning in assembly you will learn a new skill that you'll be expected to practice using throughout the day.  What’s the difference between flexibility and adaptability, how can empathy help you to get ahead, and what personal skills do you need to be an influential person?

 Every week you will Meet a Leader, highly successful people from various industries will come to talk to you about their personal experiences in reaching the top.  Last year we were privileged to welcome the Premier League's only lead female coach, a CEO from a multi-national company, a Principal from a leading international school, to name a few.
 
Be a Leader will help you understand yourself,  your skills, strengths and weaknesses.  You’ll do a series of tests which will shine a light on your true potential and help you to make better, well-informed decisions about your future.   
 
The best way to learn is through doing, so you’ll participate in entertaining workshops which tie into everything you’ve learnt throughout the week.   Put your learning into practice by organising and running a charity event or design and pitch a product to investors.  It will be like participating in the Apprentice for real and you’ll get a certificate to prove it!
