This Leadership Training weekend is designed to help train people (grade 7 and up) who are involved in, or who would like to be involved in, volunteering at Riverbend’s holiday camps.
As leaders of Riverbend this is a requirement of your leadership role so that we can equip you and guide you in techniques and policies that you need to know as part of your role. All leaders should plan on attending if at all possible. If you would like to attend but are unable to, please let the Organizing Committee know or email firstname.lastname@example.org
You will meet new people and be taught new things. We advise you to come to camp with an open mind and give everything a go. Pastoral care will be available for you to make the most of. All the usual camp rules apply during the weekend. Be respectful of other people and their belongings, no swearing. Phones are not permitted during any workshops unless requested by the presenter. Remember you are here to learn how to be the best leader, supervisor, auntie, uncle, camp parent possible. We will be looking at everyone’s behaviour over the weekend to see if you are the right leader we need at upcoming camps.
Our main aim is to honour God in all that we say, think and do. So come along and have a wonderful weekend of learning and fellowship.
When: Fri 13th May @ 6:30pm till Sun 15th May @ 2pm
Over the weekend there will be a variety of different skill workshops where you will learn skills needed to be a cabin leader, supervisor, auntie, uncle, camp mum and dad, etc. This includes a vital session on Childsafe.
