If you're likely to buy summer camp in your child, you'd like it is a gift. It isn't really that there's anything wrong with paddling a canoe for a pond, or roasting marshmallows, but summer recreational use really should be peripheral to your real goal of adventure: enriching your kid's life in planning to complete their dreams.
Operation Leadership would be the realization of your dream to make elite leadership education and training to your ultimate camp experience. The majority of my personal favorite memories have weeks spent meeting new people, playing sports, hiking, swimming, hanging out campfires...all of the fun points that camp were forced to offer. But my favorite camps were things that had something extra.
All of those fun camp experiences were pieces that made camp more fulfilling- more complete. However i liked it when camp pushed me being a better Christ follower, or simply a better athlete, or possibly a better musician, an improved speaker, a more rewarding person, along with a better kid.
It struck me a few weeks ago that younger people who check out college to get doctors, lawyers, preachers, teachers, coaches, accountants, entrepreneurs, etc., will likely get everything you have to begin their career after college. What we is likely to not get in college is what they must be truly successful... a college inside the science and art of leadership.

The summer months camp experience you happen to be watching for
Leadership can be a specific pair of concepts and skills. Leaders are certainly not born. They can be raised, taught, mentored, coached, and developed. My dream should be to see exceptional young adults, which will manage to get their degree in something apart from leadership, have a chance to get confronted with graduate level leadership skills training, be mentored by expert leaders, and enjoy the best adventure and excitement that camp has to offer, all for that cost of a traditional camp.
Operation Leadership has expanded beyond that dream, through the help of my mentors and a team of people dedicated to the success of the next generation of world changing leaders. It offers grown to feature evening concerts, American heroes, and over-the-top adventures.
This can be camp for any driven, the motivated, those with feeling of purpose. This is the opportunity to be flanked by other the younger generation by using these same traits, along with a group of adults that happen to be dedicated to their success.
