The Premiere Place for Leadership Opportunities!
Go on a college tour, design a spook walk for a summertime Halloween celebration, lead the entire camp in special events, and spend quality time not only with friends but also with campers who always love the LTG’s!
The most popular girls at camp are our legendary LTG’s. Girls completing 10th, 11th and 12th grades are invited to participate in our three-year Leadership Training Group (LTG) program. This spirited bunch of girls always has a memorable opening celebration for council fire, the best skits, and the most fun. Most of our young campers want to be an LTG when growing up, for the impact the LTG’s have on the campers is immense. This is a high school girl’s chance to learn to be a mentor, develop skills for a possible counselor position, and to stretch the brain’s creative muscle when designing a full-camp event.
All the first year LTG’s live together in a building called Cracker Barrel. Cracker Barrel provides a full living situation with showers, bunks, a meeting room, and lounge all located under one roof. The second year LTG’s live in the “penthouse” in Cracker Barrel during the first session of camp and in camper cabins during the second session. Third year LTG’s live in camper bunks and earn a stipend for participation in the program. Our LTG program is relevant to teenage girls who are interested in developing and strengthening leadership skills, acting as role models, and gaining valuable work experience.
Entrance into the LTG program is by application only. Applications must be acquired by emailing Camp Wa-Klo at: firstname.lastname@example.org. If accepted into the program, a LTG registration form will be sent to the candidate. Space is very limited for this terrific and exciting program. Apply early for the spots fill fast.
Certification will be given yearly to each participant and the curricula will be available for inclusion with high school transcripts that are submitted to colleges.
