The Sports Development Life Skill is about giving campers the opportunity to experience sport in all its forms. Sport provides an excellent opportunity to explore our physical and mental assets. The aim of this Life Skill is to create an environment where campers can enjoy the many different experiences sport can provide irrespective of their abilities.
The Leadership and Teamwork Life Skill is, as its name suggests, designed to give campers the opportunity to experience leading a team and working in a team with roles and objectives. Campers are taught simple leadership and teamwork principles and given the opportunity to play with implementing these principles through engaging mini- challenges during the camp.
