Workforce leaders have long been describing a gap in competencies among recent graduates revolving around soft skills – or – employability skills. These desirable qualities that are said to be lacking apply across a variety of jobs and life situations and are crucial in preparation for college and career success. More often than not, they are developed at an earlier age in life. Camp Navigate offers an opportunity for young people to develop, not only employability skills, but also desirable life skills through socialization, by learning the values, attitudes, and actions of others while building relationships with them. We are committed to helping young people develop the ability to effectively communicate and to think critically and creatively while collaborating with others. Our campers will also enjoy fun activities that will encourage such employability skills as entrepreneurship, project management, and how to handle emotional setbacks, which will in turn help them to later transition successfully from the early years of learning to high school to college or a career.
Sure, eating well can be challenging — family schedules are hectic and convenient, pre-packaged food is often more appealing. But at Camp Navigate, we reinforce healthy habits in the hopes that your child will develop the ability to make healthy choices for the rest of their life and throughout their careers. Maintaining healthy habits enables one to lead a life with less stress and a positive attitude – which is beneficial personally and professionally. Employees who know how to set fitness goals and stay motivated to exercise are typically goal-oriented and focused individuals. Additionally, healthy and fit employees also tend to have higher levels of self-confidence and are more likely to inspire confidence in others around them.
Servant-leaders display a genuine desire to serve others for the common good and collective human development. Camp Navigate believes in offering leadership training with Christian principles, because we believe this approach to leadership is powerful and impactful. A servant leader chooses to serve others, regardless of seniority, race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status or faith. As a result, servant leaders have the capacity to transform and effectively bring about change within not just individual followers, but also within entire organizations.
