University or Maine: Leadership Programs, Ages 14-17

Lincolnville, ME

Overview

Tanglewood’s Programs don’t just teach teenagers to appreciate nature or how to be a good team member, they model them how to succeed in it. These programs teach outdoor skills, while allowing teenagers to gain an understanding of communication, decision making, problem-solving, and sustainable living.

There are 4 phases to the Leadership Development Program, and while many participants strive to become camp counselors, the skills learned can be applied in many situations throughout life.

All Leadership programs are based at our camp in Lincolnville, and campers practice being leaders through their participation in outdoor adventures, focused activities, and community service.

All programs at Tanglewood require participants and staff to “disconnect” from digital devices to be truly present to programming and community needs. Trips take place rain or shine, and in all conditions in between (with caution and safety in mind). No two programs are the same, and different times of the summer showcase different facets of group process and adventure. Teens should come with an open mind and ready for whatever may come their way.

Teens today face greater challenges and stressors than we have seen in years. An important facet to leadership success is the development of true “social networks” among young people in real-time, to have peers with shared experiences that they are able to connect with and find support through outside of camp. Many leadership participants consider these programs some of the most valuable experiences of their lives.
