Camplify uses a series of camp-based programs to teach students leadership and life skills.  These are the very same skills and experiential learning strategies that western North Carolina summer camps have been utilizing for many years.

The first Camplify experience is weekend camp at Camp Bob at Kanuga.  Programs begin in the spring of students’ 4th grade year when Camp Bob opens their doors to serve Camplify youth. This two-night pilot, just like every following experience, hinges upon our Leadership Competency Model. Up to 85 students in 4th grade, through intentional programming, embark on a journey that expands their knowledge of responsibility, respect, ethics, collaboration, goal setting, and more.  Most of these students will graduate after three weekend experiences into the next phase of learning, weeklong summer camp.

 

Weeklong Summer Camp

 

These same students, based upon excellent participation, continue for two more weekend camps during their 5th grade year. All of this comes together when, at last, they attend a week of summer camp for the following three summers. During weeklong camp, students thrive with positive role models and peer supports. They practice exhibiting lifelong leadership skills as well as day-to-day values. In August 2016, Camp Pinnacle hosted weeklong camp. For more information about Camp Pinnacle, visit www.camppinnacle.com

Children who are successful at Weekend Camp and Weeklong Camp are invited to participate in our third tier, Pathmakers, throughout their middle school years.

 

Western North Carolina Camp Community - Our Partners and Silent Heroes

 

Camplify appreciates how gracious the local camp community is to our children. As an additional perk, residential summer camps sometimes offer individual camp scholarships to Camplify students. This summer, more than 40 students will attend a residential camp during a traditional session, up to five weeks. This acts as an optional fourth tier of our programming.

 

Students who are successful at Weekend Camp and Weeklong Camp are invited to participate in our third tier, Pathmakers, throughout 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. This gathering meets once per month for mini-retreats during the school year. At Pathmakers, we focus on four competencies:

  • communicative
  • self-starter
  • culturally-inclusive
  • growth-minded

Pathmakers activities are designed to be fun with an emphasis on community service, learning, and personal development. Our strong bond with each student increases children’s level of responsibility. At the same time, we encourage a fun learning atmosphere with positive role models for three more years. Pathmakers who excel in this setting are granted further opportunities and an invitation to our final program for high school students, LEAD.

 

If you have been through the summer camp experience, you probably have a great understanding about how experiential learning and team-based learning allow kids to explore, communicate, and develop life-skills in a fun, safe, supportive atmosphere.  If you haven't experienced this type of learning, allow us to draw some parallels.

 

Teamwork, Communication

 

A child may see the process of learning to paddle with a partner in a canoe as a fun way to be on the water and get wet.  Here's what we see:  The child is learning to work with another person on many levels.  They learn to communicate, not only verbally, but also by watching and reacting to what their partner is doing. They learn that both people in the boat are somewhat "in control" and if you want to get where you want to go, you can't do it alone or by overpowering the other person...they are learning teamwork.

 

Patience, Perseverance, Goal Setting

 

A child may see shooting a bow and arrow as a great passtime with immediate feedback and gratification of hitting a target.  They may see it as a way to compete with themselves and other campers in a friendly environment.  Here's what we see:  The child learns that there are fundamentals to shooting a bow...technique, safety and patience.  They also learn the virtues of goal setting and that it takes work (albeit fun) to become better and accomplish those goals. Hitting the bullseye time after time gives the child immediate feedback that keeps them engaged, while practicing skills over and over that become habits for life.

 

 

Camplify Mission

 

Those parallels may help you better understand our mission: Camplify uses a series of camp-based and experiential learning programs to teach kids-in-need the life skills required to succeed and become the leaders of tomorrow.

Camplify grants students the opportunity to develop skills outside of the classroom -- skills that every 21st century employer looks for, and skills that every person deserves to learn. Through our progressive programs, students from grades 4 - 12 learn about responsibility, respect, ethics, collaboration, goal-setting, and more. Camplify takes a long-term view of children’s futures. Watch out world, here they come: the responsible leaders of tomorrow that you've been looking for.
