CROCKER EMERGING LEADERS
June 13th - August 12th
*2 week commitment*
OPEN TO ALL CURRENT MIDDLESCHOOLERS:
INCOMING 7TH, 8TH & 9TH GRADERS
The Emerging Leaders Program is an extension of the Crocker Leadership Program and an opportunity to put into practice leadership skills. Emerging Leader participants will be leaned on to assist in all of our HREC Summer Programs. Our leaders will have the opportunity to work in our Crocker Leap Program and HIVE DAY CAMP.
For the Crocker Leap Program our Leaders will be in charge of helping incoming 6th graders adapt to Crocker Life. Our Leaders will become teachers aides in each class, run the student store, and help with classroom and locker logistics.
With the HIVE Day Camp, Leaders will have the opportunity to assist with all that goes into a day of summer camp; working with kids, setting up special events, learning how to lead and manage the more involved programs (archery, tennis, etc.), and much more.
Once registered participants select the program they would like to work in as well as their work weeks.

Emerging Leaders I for incoming 7th graders will focus on learning and supporting all of our HREC Summer Programs.
