LEVEL 4: DEVELOP – July 11 – 15, 2021
A positive high school experience hinges on developing essential leadership skills. This high school program is designed for students who want to learn the necessary skills to become a leader in their school or increase their effectiveness as a leader. Level 4 curriculum is high-energy and focused on developing interpersonal skills, group processes, communication skills, problem solving techniques and planning/evaluation procedures.
LEVEL 5: EMPOWER – July 11 – 15, 2021
Responsibilities continue to increase for high school students: at school, at a job, in the sports arena, or at home. Student leaders need the ability to adapt to a variety of circumstances depending on the demands of the group or task. The Level 5 curriculum examines what causes this range of needs and gives participants the skills to adapt and react to each. The result will empower delegates to recognize which style of leadership is most appropriate in any given circumstance, leading them to success.
LEVEL 6: REACH – July 11 – 15, 2021
This culminating program provides opportunities to revisit all ten of our leadership standards. With a special emphasis on character and ethical decision-making, delegates will utilize a self-directed approach to practicing essential skills needed for life in high school and beyond. Through numerous activities, they will expand their reach to include not only their school organizations, but also to their communities, and perhaps, to the world
ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONINCLUDED IN EVERY CAMP
For our camps, students will be led by camp staff in activities dedicated to understanding what it means to be a leader. With proven curriculum as the foundation, and unparalleled talent leading each camp, delegates agree that this program is “the most significant learning experience in my life to-date!”
- Banquet: The delegates get dressed up for this special affair, where they dine in their finery while listening to inspiring speeches by their fellow delegates.
- Speaking Opportunities: There are numerous opportunities for students to work on their presentation skills — and one evening where individuals from each group are asked to address the entire delegation.
- Picnic: An outdoor event that includes games, food, and fun. A great way to connect with new friends at the mid-point of the week.
- Recreation: Recreation opportunities vary by camp, but include swimming, volleyball, tennis, running clubs, socializing and more!
- Evening Closings: Each day ends with inspiring stories and songs — lead by adult and junior counselors. The perfect way to end a day.
The health and safety of camp participants is our top priority. WASC and Ripon College will follow guidance from Fond Du Lac County, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, and the CDC. In addition, the following health and safety precautions will be in place for 2021 SHS Summer Leadership Camp:

Summer Leadership Programs & Camps
We recommend the following programs for students seeking to improve their leadership skills and portfolio as primary goals of attending camp:
Parents often call our home office to ask whether we offer leadership programs. While we do offer our A+ Summer Leadership course with the word “leadership” in the actual program name, many of Education Unlimited®‘s other summer camps and programs develop leadership skills with substantial depth.
Enthusiasm for leadership is a universal goal of leadership programs but frankly is a fairly low bar of accomplishment. Education Unlimited®‘s leadership programs go far beyond promoting a general sense of enthusiasm for the idea of being a leader, and instead help students develop a sense of confidence and of perspective such that leadership is seen not as the exclusive goal in and of itself, but rather as a means to greater accomplishment in one’s life, a tool for personal empowerment, and as a springboard to provide meaningful service to one’s community.
We developed our summer leadership training programs around the premise that students should strive to be effective leaders who demonstrate excellence by their approach and by their accomplishment, the kind of leaders that by virtue of their superior service will prompt a teacher to write them an uncommonly powerful letter of recommendation for college, or will justify having a teacher or even their peers consider nominating and advocating for that student for truly special awards and selective honors.
Our A+ Summer critical thinking camps and Public Speaking Camp leadership-focused offerings have been constructed with the view that the most significant way to encourage students into earning and taking real future leadership roles is to develop not just the enthusiasm, but more importantly the skills and capabilities that will enable students to speak up in class, to solve problems creatively, and to communicate with confidence. Ultimately, the point of Education Unlimited®‘s leadership training is not only to help participants more readily gain leadership positions, but also when leadership is attained program graduates can look forward to actually being more successful as leaders. Please contact us if you would like guidance about the most appropriate leadership-focused programs for you and your family!

“I saw some spark come back to my son, and I am a grateful mama.”
My son had many difficulties in 3rd grade, and he was so defeated by the end of the school year. He wasn’t excited about a new camp, but quickly changed his mind after the first day. He also won a Leadership Award, and for the kid that didn’t win anything all school year, it was so very meaningful. I saw some spark come back to my son, and I am a grateful mama.
Camp Dakani parent, Camp Fire Heart of Oklahoma, 2017
“I don’t get stuck because I can always come back to the growth mindset that I learned from Camp Fire…”
My time as a Camp Fire camp counselor is something I’m especially proud of. I learned to never give up, to always keep trying…what I learned from Camp Fire has helped me of live my life with forward momentum. I keep trying to learn new skill sets. I don’t get stuck because I can always come back to the growth mindset that I learned from Camp Fire, and from my elders.
Jakob D., College Senior; Camp Fire Alum, Former Counselor
“Camp Fire gave me the self-confidence to not limit myself and to be adventurous!”
I made life long friends through Camp Fire and so many memories were made. I was in contact with people from many different walks of life. I think that influenced me later when I moved from place to place in accepting different ways of life and opinions. When I moved to New York at age 15, I was able to be part of a Camp Fire group and it was a wonderful gift! I was with girls that had the same values and interests in a new community where I was an “outsider – but not for long; those were the girls that I remained friends with for many years. By earning beads in many different areas, I think it helped give me the self-confidence to not limit myself to just familiar things, and to be adventurous.
Teddi Wengert, Camp Fire Alum 1950-1959, Lake City, Florida
“Being a part of Teens on Fire has truly been life-changing for me…”
When I first started being a part of this organization, I was a shy girl. As the years passed, I felt more comfortable with myself; using my words, being more confident and constantly talking in front of people and making a difference in society everyday formed me into the person I always wanted to be. College is a struggle, especially if you don’t feel great about yourself, and having the leadership qualities I was provided with while partaking in Teens on Fire continues to make life a whole lot easier for me. I can’t be more thankful to be part of such an amazing organization with people who truly share the same values on making a difference in the world.
College student; “Teens on Fire” alum with Camp Fire New Jersey
“I got the tattoo to remind me to ‘Light the fire within’…”
Before I came to Camp Sweyolakan (Camp Fire Inland Northwest), I didn’t know what I wanted in life; but then I came here and saw what Camp Fire had to offer, its inclusion statement was something I really connected with because I don’t see that a lot in many other places, and I realized that I really enjoyed working with kids. I changed my whole career path and now I’m a teacher, and am now doing something that makes me happy which helps youth develop into leaders, it’s something I”m really passionate about! I got the tattoo to remind me to “Light the fire within”…I need to find what makes me happy in life, so when I pursue what I”m passionate about, I help others do the same!
Jessica Mather, Counselor-in-Training (CIT) at Camp Sweyolakan, Teacher, Student
“Caring adults in Camp Fire mentored me, believed in me, and encouraged me…”
As a young girl, I was shy – you might have called me a wallflower. Starting in first grade, I became a Camp Fire Blue Bird in Puyallup, WA, through the Camp Fire Orca council. After that, Camp Fire became huge part of my life and taught me the life skills and leadership skills that have opened up so many opportunities in my life and career. Caring adults in Camp Fire mentored me for more than a decade; they believed in me, encouraged me, and helped me blossom into a confident “wild flower” and leader. I am so grateful to Camp Fire for its transformative role in my life.
Debbie Espinosa, Branch Executive, Downtown Oakland YMCA, Camp Fire Alum
“Camp Fire lit a spark of curiosity, caring and commitment to the service of others that has continued to this day…”
I have fond memories of spending hours with my family building a kite for a Bluebird kite-flying contest, and the thrill of accomplishment when my giant box kite won for ‘highest flying kite.’ We loved the camaraderie of Camp Fire and the warmth and support of our peers and adult leaders. We were encouraged to identify and help plan events and activities to open our hearts and minds. Camp Fire lit a spark of curiosity, caring and commitment to the service of others that has continued to this day. Thank you, Camp Fire!

“Camp Fire brings to life WoHeLo – working together to live a strong healthy life that we love!”
Camp Fire instilled in me special connection and bond to nature as well as other people! It brings to life WoHeLo – working together to live a strong healthy life that we love! I have lasting memories from being a Camp Fire member for 10 years and getting my Wohelo Award in 2005, and I want to continue this journey with my future family and as an alumni!
Tiffanee C., Camp Fire Alum
“Camp Fire accepted my daughters; they took part in the same activities as everybody else…”
I had four children, two sons, Bill and John, and twin daughters, Mary Lee and Jane. My daughters are blind and, from the start, I instilled in them a strength of purpose. When the twins were about eleven, the Camp Fire Girls accepted them as regular members. They joined with the understanding that they would be expected to take part in the same activities as everybody else. On overnight hikes, they would joke with their fellow campers, ‘What do you mean you’re afraid of the dark? There’s nothing to it!’

Leadership Development Camp | Los AngelesLeadership Development Camp | Los Angeles | American Red Cross Menu
The American Red Cross Los Angeles Region Leadership Development Camp (LDC) is an annual youth camp that gathers more than a hundred delegates in the San Bernardino mountains for a week each August. Summer of 2019 marked the 71st anniversary of the Leadership Development Camp, demonstrating the firm and lasting commitment of the Red Cross to train and empower future humanitarian leaders in communities around Los Angeles.
For five days, high school and college students build confidence and cultivate core leadership skills such as teamwork, public speaking, and diversity/cultural understanding. These skills can be applied on school campuses and later in life.
Throughout the week, Red Cross youth volunteers and staff members create sessions and activities that reinforce delegates’ individual and team leadership skills. The youth come back from camp each year as stronger individuals. Delegates form friendships that can last a lifetime, and moreover, they will become leaders who make a difference in their schools and communities.
2020 camp will be August 3 – 7. Applications for LDC 2020 will be available March 1 – July 10.
I don’t think I’ve ever met so many people who were so loving, encouraging, and just willing to open their hearts to each other.
LDC programs focus on actively teaching valuable skills for delegates to use in their educational and professional careers. The programs, which are updated each year in regards to contemporary issues and trends, are designed and implemented by alumni and students from across the LA Region.
LDC delegates learn fundraising, marketing, and time management/planning skills. Core leadership skills are a focus in an active environment – sessions and activities are about doing. There are no lectures! That’s an LDC standard.
Expect to expand your world by sharing experiences with youth from all over Southern California. Be prepared to open your mind and learn something new about yourself and about what’s going on in the world. Discover what you can do to make a positive impact in your life and in your community.
See photos from past camps
Continuous Youth Leadership Model
What sets LDC apart from other youth camps, is that it is completely planned and staffed by high school and college youth. Past delegates are invited to apply and return as staffers, and past staffers, are invited to apply to become a part of the LDC advisory board. This model allows camp traditions to continue from cohort to cohort, as well as provide a space for youth to build on multiple layers of involvement and leadership lessons.
LDC advisory board members are the most senior camp participants, and the application for this position is only open to youth who have previously served as an LDC camp staffer. Advisory board members mentor and train staff to help them successfully organize the camp. The advisory board for this year has been chosen and applications for the 2021 advisory board will open in November 2020.
LDC staff are appointed in February through a screening process. To organize camp activities, staffers participate in at least three training sessions, a weekend retreat, and camp planning weekend organized by the advisory board between March and July.
All past LDC delegates are welcome to apply for a staff position.
Applications for LDC 2020 Staff are now closed.
Leadership Development Camp 2020

Incoming freshmen may apply, but they will be required to complete an additional interview before acceptance to camp. This is an overnight camp.

Socialist epilogue of the Buchenwald concentration camp
Last week, a permanent exhibition was opened on the territory of the former Nazi concentration camp Buchenwald, telling about the use of this concentration camp after 1945 by the Soviet occupation administration and the authorities of the GDR.
The Buchenwald concentration camp (in German it means “Beech Forest”), located in an idyllic area near Weimar, has long become synonymous with Nazi atrocities. The memorial complex, built at the direction of the East German government next to this concentration camp, was carefully stylized by the ideologists of the USSR and the GDR as a grandiose and tragic symbol of the anti-fascist struggle. According to the official version (it was strictly adhered to by the socialist propaganda of the GDR), after the prisoner uprising, which was organized by courageous and brave underground communists, the Buchenwald prisoners were released, and the camp itself was abolished.
In a unified Germany, the communist version of the camp’s history has been challenged. According to the results of research by historians from both West and East Germany, the operation of the concentration camp continued for a long time after the defeat of Nazi Germany. The Soviet occupation administration transformed KZ Buchenwald into a “Soviet special camp # 2 in Germany.” From 1945 to 1950, about 28 thousand people were imprisoned in the camp. About a quarter of these prisoners died from hunger, cold and disease.To date, German historians have been able to establish the names of 7113 prisoners buried during this period in the fields in the vicinity of the camp.
Most of the prisoners were arrested by the Soviet authorities in 1945. According to preliminary data from the FRG press, about 70% of those arrested belonged to the middle or lower levels of the NSDAP or were government officials in Germany who were accused of collaborating with the Nazis. However, among those arrested were also completely apolitical people, including women and children.Often the reason for the arrest was the suspicion that this or that teenager might maintain contact with the Nazi youth movement Werewolf, which had gone underground. The exposition also contains examples of sweeping accusations and arrests. For example, one of the local saleswomen was sent to a concentration camp for wrapping a customer’s goods in a Nazi newspaper printed in a foreign language she did not understand.
The opening of the exposition on the socialist history of Buchenwald caused a noticeable resonance in Germany.Although in recent years, many exposing publications have appeared in the FRG press about the real history of the totalitarian apparatus of the GDR, including about the cooperation of communists with the Nazis in concentration camps, about the successful post-war careers of many Nazis and SS men in East Germany, about the latent anti-Semitism of foreign policy and propaganda of the GDR, and etc., Buchenwald’s theme is of particular importance to the East German public. For a long time, the real history of Buchenwald was strictly classified in the GDR (as well as in the USSR).Now many former prisoners of Buchenwald, against whom at one time (and often unreasonably) the heaviest accusations of complicity with the Nazis were brought forward, demand a new, comprehensive and fair legal and scientific investigation of the crimes committed in Buchenwald both during the time of National Socialism and and socialism.
The opening of the XI International Platonic Arts Festival took place at the Voronezh State Opera and Ballet Theater Saturday evening, June 5th. The audience was shown Mozart’s opera “The Marriage of Figaro” staged by Mikhail Bychkov. Felix, People’s Artist of the Russian Federation, became the production conductor Korobov.
“The Wedding of Figaro” was a new experience for the soloists of the Theater opera and ballet. They started working on the production after the new year – according to artistic director of the theater Alexander Lityagin, this is a very short term for the preparation of such a voluminous performance.Alexei Votyakov was invited as a production designer, Ivan Vinogradov became a lighting designer. The performance was accompanied by a video sequence, on which Alexey Bychkov worked. Also, a Russian translation was broadcast on the screen installed at the top of the stage, because the artists sang in Italian. language. In preparation for the performance, a language teacher worked with the soloists. Executor the role of Figaro Fyodor Kostyukov said that he had previously taught recitative as a set of sounds, not understanding about than speech. But this time, given the tight deadline, he dived into study seriously and deeply.
– I have a clear word-for-word translation to understand, oh than I sing. Now he is not needed – I started thinking in Italian language, and it’s very nice. Everyone who participated in this production is incredibly grew up – both vocally and acting, and working with Felix Pavlovich is a separate story. Thank you to the theater and the Platonov Festival for this. Working with Mikhail Vladimirovich too was very interesting and personally helped me a lot. Three months ago I was much more modest, more timid, – said Fyodor Kostyukov.
Conductor Felix Korobov noted that The Marriage of Figaro is much more complicated than Don Juan – musically, dramatically, and vocally.
– This is a completely different stage. The vocalists had to learn twice as many recitatives than in Don Juan. Ensembles, Italian language … I understand the horror of the Voronezh troupe when they received these notes for a couple months before the premiere – they were going crazy. Thanks to the Voronezh theater for being vocal and Italian language teachers were invited: this made it possible to immediately raise staging level.There was a creative atmosphere, a desire to jump over his head – and many have done it more than once, – said the maestro.
The part of Suzanne was performed by Alexander Dobrolyubov, and the role of the count went to Kirill Afonin. A soloist was invited to participate in the play Moscow Academic Musical Theater named after Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko Natalia Petrozhitskaya (Countess Rozina) and soloist of the Bolshoi Theater Katarinu Lukas (Cherubino). According to Natalia Petrozhitskaya, she taught the role of the countess from scratch, and is glad that the birth of her heroine happened precisely in co-creation with artists who work in the theater of opera and ballet.
– We did everything together. These months are fleeting we became a big team, made friends and pulled ourselves together in style. it such happiness! A wonderful theater with traditions and people who live theater – said the soloist.
The performance was postponed to the post-war period. After many years of war and hardship, a joyful event – the wedding of his chamberlain Figaro. Further on the plot – the count tries to return the right of the first night, canceled by him himself, in order to achieve Figaro’s bride Suzanne.According to Fyodor Kostyukov, he faced an internal conflict at the first rehearsals – Mikhail Bychkov demanded hatred for the count, and the hero of the artist was set up easily. At this moment, the soloist had to step over himself.
– It turned out more dramatic, livelier, more natural. New circumstances – the post-war period, long years of war, losses – all this revealed the image of Figaro in a new way. It turned out to be a serious hero, tragic, not what I imagined him to be, – admitted Fyodor Kostyukov.
Initiated the production of The Marriage of Figaro at the Opera and ballet was Alexander Lityagin.
– I am satisfied with the production team that worked on this performance, and is incredibly happy for the theater soloists who have made a personal a huge feat. Their eyes were burning, they understood that they were not in time, but they betrayed the result is a great school for them. As for the orchestra – as soon as the maestro stood at the console, a miracle happened, – said the artistic director of the theater.
Before the start of the performance, artistic director festival Mikhail Bychkov read out a greeting from the Vice-Speaker of the State Duma Alexei Gordeev, who is one of the founders of the festival:
– The Platonov festival is considered one of the most authoritative and well-known cultural events of our country.It is different friendly and welcoming atmosphere, established traditions, and provides the best and most interesting theatrical performances, performances, exhibitions, lectures, musical works, literary novelties, and most importantly – brings together recognized masters and talented the youth. The festival has rightfully become a symbol of the cultural leadership of Voronezh, personification and confirmation of a qualitative change in socio-cultural space of our region, which served as an impetus for the development of the economy.It also became a reflection of the real capital, an example of a symphony of power, business and society – which creates a unique environment for people to communicate. It is gratifying that the festival develops and preserves the work of the writer Andrei Platonov, his powerful philosophical potential, the desire to comprehend the logic of folk life, the meaning and the purpose of man on earth. I would like to express special words of gratitude founder and permanent artistic director of the Platonov Festival Mikhail Vladimirovich Bychkov, his talent as an artist and organizer.And also thank our sponsors, the team organizers, volunteers and, of course, Governor Alexander Gusev, for the fact that the festival lives on and continues, in Platonov’s words, “to sow souls in people”.
Governor Alexander Gusev could not attend the opening of the festival, as at this time he was returning from St. international economic forum. His welcoming speech was read by the Deputy Prime Minister Voronezh Region Oleg Mosolov:
– International Platonic Festival of Arts from year after year, it increases the geographical coverage of its participants and the poster activities.This time, the time frame was extended – from spring to autumn. I express my gratitude to those who give us such a holiday: talented actors, directors, musicians, artists, writers, and, of course, the organizing team. Thank you empathetic, educated, grateful Voronezh public and guests of our region for their attention to the festival. I wish you all inspiration and the best impressions from our cultural holiday.
Deputy Chairman of the regional government added that Platonovsky the arts festival is an example of how, despite difficulties, changing conditions and world challenges nothing can stop the creative process.
– Festival is the brightest event in our cultural palette, not only in Voronezh region and the Central Black Earth Region, but also throughout Russia. This year he presented the joy of communicating with the Bolshoi Theater, and these are not only the first opportunities, but a position, which should become permanent. What is happening now deserves great respect and words of gratitude to all people who for this involved, – Oleg Mosolov summed up.
Mikhail Bychkov recalled that in 2021 the festival takes place in three stages.The first took place in April, when on the stage of the Opera and ballet was shown the ballet of the Bolshoi Theater of Russia “The Taming of the Shrew” to music by Dmitry Shostakovich staged by the French choreographer Jean-Christophe Maillot, artistic director of the Monte Carlo Ballet. The Russian part will be held from 3 to 20 June programs, and in the fall will be shown foreign.
– I want to thank the founders of the festival – the government Voronezh Region, Governor Alexander Gusev and Voronezh City Hall.
