The 21st Century Skills Our Summer Camp Teaches

 Scott discusses the 21st century skills that our summer camp teaches

We just posted this video a few days ago. It is from a talk that Scott Brody, the owner/director of our brother-sister summer camp in NH, gave our staff this past summer. In just over 2 minutes Scott outlines during a staff training seminar the 5 main 21st century skills that we teach campers at Kenwood and Evergreen, and why they are so crucial for children and young adults. 

  1. Leadership
  2. Team work and collaboration
  3. Communication
  4. Creativity
  5. Critical thinking and problem solving 

21st century skills (also known as non-cognitive skills) are routinely sighted by employers and academic researchers as the THE most important skills people need to be successful in the workplace. Sadly, they are also the skills most lacking in today’s high school and college graduates. 

We invite you to take a look at this video. Do you think a summer camp can effectively teach these skills to children? Are 21st century skills an important part of your child’s development? If you’d like to learn more about what we do and how we do it please click on the button below.
