Our Leadership Getaways do not require students to submit applications, but before signing up, we encourage all parents to consider the nature of this camp and the maturity of their children. The underlying goal of this program is to teach students leadership, responsibility, accountability, and respect for others. As such, we maintain minimal rules and restrictions so students have the freedom to develop personal accountability. For this learning environment to work, we have a zero-tolerance policy for the following behaviors:
- Bullying of any nature (mental or physical).
- Violence, excessive roughhousing, or reckless behavior.
- Law-breaking of any kind.
- Intentional destruction of property.
- Deliberating evading adult supervision (violating curfew or room restrictions).
If your children have a history of behavioral issues or you do not believe they can respect this learning environment, please contact us before signing up: Team@LeadAZ.org. If students violate our policy, they will be sent home immediately without refund, and parents will be responsible for any extra travel costs associated with transportation.
Student safety is a top priority. We do not permit any students to attend our getaways if they show symptoms of COVID-19 or if they have had recent exposure. We check for symptoms, track temperatures, and practice hygienic procedures to minimize risk.
