So You Think You Can Build?
First a Word From the Builders
Today is the big day! Okay, so you have had time to think about the fun you had at camp, but now it is time to decide if you are up to the task of building camp! It is really important that you think long and hard about your decision about whether or not to apply to become a builder. You should really be taking the next few days to think it over, because it is a HUGE commitment.
On the APPLICATION FORM you will be asked to fill out how you exemplify each of LPC's 5 core values in your everyday life. Those 5 core values are: Hardworking, Taking Initiative, Walking the Talk, Being Inclusive, and having Positive Energy. You will also need to complete the PAY IT FORWARD assignment.
So remember: you have a few days to think about it. Think about what it means to be a builder, and whether or not that is what you want. If it is, then complete the application form and assignment. Even if you don't think you'll make it because you've only been to one camp or you couldn't make it to the latest one, hand it in anyway, because then at least we know you're interested.
If you have any questions about the application process, feel free to come to Guidance and talk with Scotty.
Next a Word from the Advisors
First you need to think seriously about applying for this job. Coming to camp as a delegate is a lot of fun and we know that you have a great time, but being a builder is a really different experience. Being a builder is about working very hard for the benefit of the delegates. It is about working for others and creating an amazing weekend for the delegates. It is about service.
It takes a lot of work to make the weekend come together. We will begin the planning of next year's camp in May. Builders work on various things over the course of the summer and once school starts up in the fall, we go full out until camp weekend. You are expected to do all of this, plus maintain your grades. It can be very demanding. Builders must be creative problem-solvers, team players, and willing to step out of their comfort zones when new opportunities present themselves. We value initiative, co-operation, individuality and hard work.
If the above excites you, and doesn’t scare you away then we would welcome your APPLICATION. You will also need to complete the attached PAY IT FORWARD assignment. Please note that the APPLICATION and PAY IT FORWARD assignment must be handed in to Mrs. Scott Thomas in Guidance by 2:30 pm on Friday, April 5th.
After you have submitted your completed forms, it will take us a while to process them and make decisions about who will be invited to join the team. Please be patient with us. It is a very difficult decision and we really put a lot of time into it. We don't anticipate having a decision for several weeks.
Dare you to move!
