Senior High Workshops (SHW)

2018 TENTATIVE Dates: July 29 - Aug. 4

Location: Washington College in Chestertown, MD

Eligibility: Students entering grades 9-12 in Fall 2018

Description: The Senior High Workshop (SHW) provides a fun, challenging, inspiring, and fulfilling week-long experience for teens while helping them to develop leadership skills needed to succeed in diverse environments. Through innovative leadership activities and engaging group challenges, students interact with both peers and staff to develop a unique leadership style to apply to their lives at home. Throughout the week, teens are encouraged to set goals and are given the tools to achieve them. Additionally, the students meet other teens from around the state and have the opportunity to form life-long friendships. The SHW staff strive to empower teens to be the leaders they want to be in their community and agents of positive change in society. 

 Daily activities include: 

  •          Interactive workshops on topics such as self awareness, leadership styles, group dynamics, diversity, motivation & empowerment, advocacy, and more
  •          Group projects that allow delegates to apply and get feedback on their leadership and interpersonal skills
  •          Small group coaching sessions with our trained staff to address specific areas of growth for each delegate and identify an action plan for post-site implementation
  •          Recreational activities such as team building games throughout the day, and a different camp-wide activity each night (a dance, a talent show, "messy games night," and more)  

Tuition: TBD 

To Apply: Registration will open in early January, 2018
