This program is ideal for both new and experienced D&D players. Campers can expect equal amounts of time adventuring together playing D&D as spent adventuring outdoors doing camp activites such as our high ropes course.
Anake Leadership Program
Campers in Grade 9
The Anake Leadership Program is open to all campers who are currently enrolled in Grade 9. When a camper enrolls in their final year as an Adventurer, they are welcome to also enroll in the Anake Leadership Program that same summer. "Anake" is the Akamba word for "Warrior" and it refers to someone who puts the needs of others at the same level as their own.
Anakes are campers who get to stay at camp for an entire week of the summer and work behind the scenes to make Camp Warwa even more amazing. There is always something to do at camp, and our Anakes will be right in the center of the action. Anakes will also get to spend time learning leadership skills directly from our counselors, and get to help out with a group of younger campers. Anakes help with dishes, cleaning, setting up games, and in all manner of tasks that help the community. They will also take part in workshops with our Leadership Team focusing on building confidence and growing leadership skills. The majority of their time is spent helping counselors with their campers and learning how to mentor youth. This is a great opportunity for campers to learn what it is like to be a counselor and to gain experience that can help them apply to be a Junior Counselor next year.
There is no charge for the Anake Leadership program, although campers must currently be in grade 9 and also be enrolled in one of our Adventurer programs to sign up as a volunteer. Campers who have attended Camp Warwa in the past, and are currently in grade 9 can also sign up.
