“All I did was help someone find his dream”
- Captain America
Put on your cape and fly into adventure! Take the first step in becoming a hero by creating your own hero persona. Craft your cape, your mask and your insignia while we explore the questions of: What makes a hero act for others? Why do heroes want to help others?
In one week of adventure, we learn how to be a hero and be a part of a heroic team. Our goal: Be the best superheroes ever! Build your hero skills with daily team challenges, exciting games, and hero value lessons. Campers build their own superhero character that represent who they are and our SUPER values of:
S - Serving
U - Upstander
P - Partnership
E - Empathy
R - Responsibility
Campers explore each value by creating daily comic book pages showing how their hero overcomes a challenge that matches each daily SUPER value.
Great leadership at the lower elementary age is a combination of having values and being able to act on them. Young leaders practice skills of emotional intelligence, good communication and teamwork. They help others not only because they know it is what they should do, but what they want to do. Leading from values is part of the the Camp Brainy Bunch Model of Leadership.

Daily Team Challenges - Team challenges instill practical leadership skills through hands-on problem solving. Campers must overcome communication obstacles, role changes, direction mishaps and more. All while climbing through Spiderman's web, crossing a lava river, or defeating the forces of evil.
Superhero Persona Crafts - Campers create masks, capes, and insignias for their personal superhero. These creative projects help to focus instruction on displaying values and representing yourself as a leader.
Hero Value Lessons and Comic booking - These are opportunities to teach the character traits of effective leaders. Through storytelling, problem solving, and comic book creation, we discuss and apply character lessons to leadership.
Healthy Heroes - Everyday includes lots of high energy and many mindfulness activities that exercise body and mind. This combined with a healthy lunch gives each hero the chance to be at their best.
Character Development - Great leaderships are made from strong minds to guide and big hearts to act. We build both by exploring honesty, integrity, empathy, community, respect, and humility.
Leadership Skills - Each day we apply multiple leadership skills in each challenge and activity. We also take the time to debrief on specific skills so that student understand what they have accomplished and its greater impact for themselves and how it can be used outside of camp. These skills may cover, different types of effective communication, creative problem solving, having a clear vision, how to lead and inspire a team, and more.
