Middle School Apprentices

Program description:

Our Middle School Apprentice program is for both returning and new Crow’s Path kids who want to move beyond the role of a participant and help design and lead transformative experiences for younger kids. We offer apprenticeships for our vacation camps during the school year as well as summer camps. In the summer, apprentices choose two camps from our wide range of offerings (see options below) at which they will apprentice. Summer apprentices attend our week long staff training (June 15-19, 2020). They work directly with staff to lead games, facilitate activities, share stories, sing songs, and be an awesome role model for the younger camps.

Each apprentice will learn from staff, other apprentices, and the campers a range of skills that varies from camp to camp. Apprentices do not need any prior experience with skills at a camp, just a sense of curiosity and excitement to learn. They will also receive feedback and guidance on being an effective leader from staff.

Space is limited to 2 apprentices per camp, so sign up early get the camps you want!

Activities include:

  • Leading nature-based games
  • Helping kids learn skills
  • Creating and telling a story
  • Pushing edges and taking responsibility
  • Building skills
  • Swimming, canoeing
