Why you should plan NOW to attend OASC Summer Leadership Camp
We know winter just started… but aren’t you ready for summer again? There aren’t many things that beat no school and sunshine! Here in the OASC office, we are already planning OASC Summer Leadership Camp. Don’t worry, we’ll share the theme with you soon! We wanted to let you know of a few reasons why you should plan to attend OASC summer leadership camp NOW!
Reason #1: July will be here before you know it!
While days go by slow, months seem to go by faster than we expect! Summer Leadership camp is only 6 months away! If you block it out in your calendar now, other things won’t take the place of your leadership development!
Reason #2: Set a goal and you will achieve it!
People with written goals are 50% more likely to achieve than people without goals. If you set a SMART goal now, it will help you get yourself to camp! SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Time-Based. Don’t forget to set mini goals to help you get to your final goal! Read to the end of this article to see an example!
Reason #3: Make an investment in yourself
Warren Buffett said, “The best investment you will ever make is in yourself.” We agree! Decide now that you are going to work on achieving your leadership goals by developing your leadership skills. Camp costs start at $325*! (That’s as little as $54 per month.) If camp costs are a financial burden, see if your school can help! We also encourage fundraising. Many community members are willing to donate to causes you’re passionate about.
Summer Leadership Camp can feel like a big decision. We know being away from home can be a big discomfort. However, many student leaders are anxious when they first arrive, but always leave wanting more. We can’t wait to see you there!
SMART GOAL: I will attend MS Summer Leadership Camp at WOU from July 14-17, 2019.
Mini Goal: Fundraise $55 per month to pay for Summer Leadership Camp
Steps I will take to make this happen: Babysit at least once a week, ask to help my neighbors with their yard work or house chores for money, write four fundraising letters to the local Elks, Rotary, Kiwanis and the 20/30 club. Tell people about my goal!
*OASC Summer Leadership Camp is priced at the early-bird rate of $329 for Middle School Students and $399 for High School Students.
