Camp Description

The SCRC Leaders-In-Training Day Camp’s mission is to shape the bright young leaders of Shippensburg, for today and tomorrow! The Shippensburg Community Resource Coalition (SCRC) is a collaborative effort to provide quality social services and youth programs that are accessible and safe and that recognize the dignity and worth of each person. Our goal is to help community members reach their full potential.

The SCRC is offering a four-day leadership camp for students in the Shippensburg Area School District, entering grades 7-12. Participants in the Leaders-in-Training Camp will receive instruction and participate in activities from the Youth Engaged in Leadership and Learning (YELL) curriculum. Participants will develop leadership skills related to communication, listening, and critical thinking skills. They will volunteer at the SU Farm and learn about positive involvement in the community. The program helps youth to increase their confidence through engaging positive attitudes and beliefs about their ability to contribute and make a difference in their community. The camp will be offered 6/9, 6/10, 6/11, and 6/12 from 8:30am – 4:30pm at Shippensburg University. Teens who complete Leaders-In-Training Camp will be invited to serve as Leaders-In-Training during the SCRC’s Summer Learning Program (SLP), a seven-week summer camp that offers free meals and enrichment opportunities, while still benefitting from the other aspects of the program.
