Quest Leadership Academy!

Experience Quest's unique program designed to designate and empower camp leaders!

There is a leader inside each of us!

Quest Camps is proud to offer the Quest Leadership Academy.

The Leadership Academy program provides instruction specially designed for Quest “graduates” and high school students desiring community leadership opportunities!

Empowering Role Models

The Leadership Academy selects leaders who want opportunities to lead, help at camp, be a role model, and desire to learn while having fun.

Anyone wearing a Quest shirt is a reflection of our Quest team and must maintain a high-level of role model behaviors to secure a space in the Leadership Program.

Uniquely Structured

Our Leadership Academy program is designed to empower Quest campers while specifically tailored to their unique needs, which may be presented by issues such as Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD/ADD), high-functioning Autism (previously Asperger’s Disorder), learning disabilities, mood disorders, depression, social anxiety, etc.

* Entry into this program is based on staff decision regarding readiness. Teens who are not Quest graduates must complete an interview and possibly provide references.

Emotionally Intelligent Leadership

Quest is adapting pieces of the research regarding emotionally intelligent leadership such as Consciousness of Self, Consciousness of Others and Consciousness of Context.

Consciousness
of Self

Emotion regulation, Cognitive flexibility, Optimism, Initiative, Achievement, and more!

Consciousness
of Others

Empathy, Inspiring others, Building relationships, Managing conflict, and more!

Consciousness
of Context

Interpreting group & external forces and more!

Since Quest already provides training in the large majority of these areas through Quest’s Therapeutic Model, the Leadership Academy will continue to round out growth edges for our leaders in these areas and then more specifically apply these areas to the context of leadership and further hone individualized strengths.
