In 2019 the chapter proudly introduced the Bleedership Institute--a leadership development program available for community members interested in developing their team building and supervision skills in a camp setting. This year we are excited to expand upon the Bleedership Institute and expand the involvement to more than camp.
2022 CAMP COUNSELORS NEEDED- APPLY BY MAY 1, 2022
Individuals ages 19+ have the opportunity to attend camp once again – though this time as a leader. The Bleedership Program seeks to further build on the skills taught by Mile High Summer Camp. This will be achieved through offering a variety of leadership opportunities through being an independent co-counselor or counselor. Counselors must possess maturity, flexibility, a strong work ethic, and the ability to have fun! Bleedership Counselors have the chance to supervise campers, facilitate activities, and participate in camp. Serving as a Bleedership Counselor serves as a great resume builder for colleges and further employers.
The Bleedership Institute is perfect for individuals interested in pursuing non-profit, work with children, or recommendations for internships/college programs.
