The #1 National Best-Selling Book on
Teaching Teens Leadership at Camp & LIT/CIT Programs

Learning Leadership
How to Develop Outstanding Teen Leadership Training Programs at Camp

It’s all here! This 307 page, 35 chapter book explains exactly how to build and run a superb program. At its heart are the 24 unique, reproducible “Skills Maps” which identify the precise things that leaders do and say. Just like a “swim chart” tells exactly what swimmers need to progress, the Maps are very bit as specific in teaching communication, cooperation, problem-solving, respect, responsibility, planning, and more. Plus:

  • seven terrific tools for teaching leadership in fun and effective ways
  • transforming LIT and CIT programs where older campers are “helpers” into real courses in how to be great leaders, team members, counselors, and teachers
  • original leadership training activities you won’t find anywhere else,
     many of which you can also use in your general staff training
  • exactly how to teach staff to be skilled mentors of junior leaders
  • the real secrets to doing activity debriefing to maximize participation
     the learning of life skills for all young people
  • and more!
