We are looking for a few good leaders for our Shakedown and Summer Adventure
One of the unique components of the program is based upon crew leadership.
Crews will be formed consisting of teens and adults (9-12 people per crew,
depending upon wilderness area policies). Each crew will select two of
their youth members to serve as the Crew Leader.
These Crew Leaders have a lot of responsibility placed upon their shoulders.
They delegate work tasks and make sure that every member is doing their
part; they make decisions and represent the crew as needed; they work
with the adult advisors to make sure everybody is doing okay. They set
the pace and influence the attitudes of their crew. It is an honor to
be a crew leader!
Each crew will have three adults leaders who will serve in an advisory
role for the group. Many of the adults are volunteer 4-H leaders or BSA
leaders who take valuable vacation time to spend with teens in the outdoor
setting. Adults must enjoy working with teens, thrive on adventure and
value group building experiences. Why so many adults on each crew? The
program believes in the value of three-deep leadership in order to handle
emergency situations and provide a safe environment for the youth participants
in the backcountry.
