SUMMER PLACE LEADERS IN TRAINING

Because camper safety is our primary goal, and after discussion with health experts and a review of state guidelines, we have made the decision to cancel Summer Place for 2020. Additional information has been sent to all registered campers regarding refunds. For more information contact splace@hartford.edu. We are looking forward to lots of fun in the sun next summer!

At SPLIT, we learn by doing. Campers train in challenge course facilitation on the University of Hartford’s high- and low-ropes courses, and attend workshops on management and leadership skills, team building, and self-discovery. SPLIT participants also gain hands-on experience working with Summer Place, Li’l Place, and Kinderplace campers.

Each of the SPLIT two-week sessions is built around a different curriculum, and campers leave the program with a greater sense of responsibility and competency, a strong work ethic, and more confidence in their decision-making and problem-solving abilities.

Session I focuses on leadership and character development. Session II focuses on community service—including a SPLIT food drive to benefit Hands On Hartford. Session III focuses on job application and interview strategies, and includes guest speakers who expose the campers to many professional career opportunities. It is important to note that we cover all of these topics throughout the summer, but place more of an emphasis on a specific theme during each focused two-week period.
