Description: The Homeschool Leadership Development Program (LDP) is the first step in Camp St. Croix’s camper leadership training progression. Learn self-confidence, responsibility management, and group development through activity planning. Partnering with a Camp St. Croix Outdoor Education Instructor, learn the knowledge and skills necessary to organize and implement a lesson and activity for younger students.

Students will spend the part of morning programming learning content and preparing an activity under supervision of an Outdoor Education Instructor. After lunch, the students will co-lead the lesson and activity alongside one of Croix’s Outdoor Education Instructors allowing them to have more ownership over their learning experience and character development.

Lesson topic: How do people from ancient cultures to modern day use the stars in their daily lives? Learn some basic astronomy concepts, identify some of the most prominent constellations in the northern skies, and enjoy the stories of the characters for whom they were named.

Target age range: for 12–16 years old

Cost per teen/student: $17 (includes dinner)
