WHAT STUDENTS CAN EXPECT:
Elite Leadership Training unlike anything you have ever experienced.
New friends from across North America, and around the world.
The best four days of your life.
From the moment you step onto the camp-bound bus to the moment you leave, your time will be jam-packed with interactive breakout sessions, innovative leadership simulations, top youth speakers, gourmet meals, and camp-wide activities. We’ve intentionally scheduled the program so that you are getting the most out of your four days. With minimal downtime, you won’t need to bring anything to entertain yourself (scrapbooking kit, your pet gerbil) because we've designed a schedule to maximize your time. Days will start early and end late, and they'll be filled with meaningful discussions, skill-building, epic dance parties, new best friends, and dozens of Snapchat-worthy moments.
A NOTE TO PARENTs...
The Count Me In Leadership Summit programs are immediately different from other trainings because they are built on a foundation of peer-to-peer mentorship. Leadership Sessions at the High School and College level camp are facilitated by Summit Alumni, who we call Legacy Coaches™. This curated team of student leaders are trained throughout the year, preparing material alongside an expert team of teachers, curriculum developers, and social workers. The result: a teen tested / parent approved program that is energetic, engaging and impactful. Our global leadership summit program is far from average or cookie-cutter. These carefully architected programs offer a transformational experience that will act as a catalyst for students to discover new insights about themselves, and the world around them. We foster a safe and supportive environment, and encourage participants to reflect, challenge, question, and practice using their voice. This begins at our Middle School Summit, with our NOTICE. CHOOSE. ACT.® training, a template for making powerful and purposeful decisions that guide students to create outcomes that they feel proud of and take responsibility for. The core principle is that when outcomes are not what we hoped they would be, we still take responsibility, learn from them and move forward. The Count Me In Leadership Summit Middle School, High School and College level programs are an opportunity to find the leader within, gain new perspectives, and build tangible skills to be successful, and make a difference.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Count Me In, in partnership with All It Takes, provides opportunities for middle school, high school, and college-age students from across the globe to learn from world-class speakers, expert trainers, and caring mentors, all while making lifelong friends in an incredible outdoor setting, and experiencing what many alumni have called the best 4 days of their life!
This experiential youth leadership training camp creates an environment where students learn to recognize and embrace their individual strengths and weaknesses; the strengths and weaknesses of others and learn to build personal and social acceptance for all traits in all people. Together students participate in activities that fundamentally assist them in understanding the profound impact their actions have on the world around them from the perspectives of social leadership and personal insight. With this new paradigm, students return to their campuses and communities with an action plan and the tools to create cultural change that increases school safety, individual well-being and a setting where all students can thrive academically and socially.
Through this experience students create a dynamic shift in their ability to relate to others offering a new paradigm of personal responsibility for the well-being of self and others. Our youth leadership programs teach young people at a critical life stage to practice honor, acceptance, compassion and respect in order to create sustainable, positive change among their peers, family members, society and the environment.
Through inspiring keynote sessions, interactive workshops, real-time leadership simulations, and a whole lot of outdoor fun, the Summit helps students skyrocket their leadership skills. The ability to set goals and follow through is what sets top performers apart. It’s a simple concept, though not one that teens tend to naturally consider. Learning to set goals early in life is a powerful foundation for whatever comes next. We dive deep into goal setting, respect and responsibility, conflict resolution, stress management, working with teams, building confidence, leveraging your strengths, clarifying your life direction, and much, much more.
In other words,
4 unforgettable days that will transform the way students lead and live.
All for the price of a prom dress.
So don’t wait! Your best future is waiting to be unleashed.
