Camper Leadership Programme

The Camper Leadership Programme (CLP) is a leadership programme for previous campers. It’s designed to teach the group life skills that can be used outside of camp and help rebuild confidence and encourage peer support.

What is Barretstown’s Camper Leadership Programme?

At Barretstown we offer previous campers the opportunity to return and take part in the Camper Leadership Programme (C.L.P.). The programme runs over 3 sessions throughout the year. This programme is designed to help campers see all the skills and qualities that they already possess. Throughout the programme opportunities will be created to help campers make new connections with other campers who have been part of Barretstown programmes in the past. Along with this campers will learn new skills along the way that will hopefully benefit them in whatever avenue they decide to go down. Some of the time will be spent learning skills that staff utilize at camp as we believe that these skills can be used in all walks of life. Please note that learning how to be a camp staff member is not the primary focus of the programme.
