Leadership is the difference maker and can be the deal breaker when absent. It’s how we grow organizations and essential in how we impact lives. However, leadership cannot be an idea we simply talk about. Instead, leadership is the action we must live out. It is never too early to learn the tenets of leadership. In fact, introducing leadership principles to children at an early age is a necessity.
The DREAM Sports Summer Learning Camp features a combined Connecticut Association of Schools programming curriculum with that of the Dream Now Youth Leadership Program, a community partner program of President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper Initiative.
Leadership Workshop Sessions
Each week is structured to incorporate a daily morning leadership development workshop session. The six-week camp will feature 30 different leadership sessions facilitated by our staff and special guest presenters. Student groups will be combined or broken out appropriately as age and maturity level dictates for the respective workshop topics. A partial list of leadership topics and/or activities that will be included in the summer camp’s leadership curriculum are:
Athletic Role Responsibility (Impact & Influence)
