Join a cohort of Maccabi campers as we explore and develop leadership skills over the course of a 4-week program. Participants will learn about leadership, explore their own skills and hone new ones, plan and lead programs this summer, develop new ideas for the year round camp community, and of course, make new friends.

Participants in M-FiSL will discuss what it means to be a leader and the many ways you can lead and develop the skills of a leader. Discussions about current events, reflections on leaders and leadership styles, and real life applications, will help campers to think critically, become better problem solvers and put their own leadership skills to practice.
