you’ll learn about YOU – your unique strengths and areas for growth through assessments like the Myers-Briggs Personality Test and Bloom’s Taxonomy for Critical Thinking. You’ll explore the art of decision-making through practical scenarios and team-based activities. You’ll learn about how leadership applies to business and entrepreneurship, and you’ll reflect on your own values and character. 

Leaders provide direction and vision. They motivate and inspire others. And, everyone draws upon leadership skills when doing things with others, from change makers and influencers to friends and party starters. The Business Leadership Camp will help you develop essential leadership tools to become a better listener, observer, and communicator.

The Business Leadership Camp is about uncovering the qualities that make you influential, trustworthy, and courageous in the eyes of others. You’ll learn practical skills and form meaningful friendships with fellow campers.
