WE’RE MORE THAN JUST A CAMP
At Headfirst, we create engaging, hands-on learning environments using the power of play to delight and inspire. Each week, we immerse our campers in a carefully crafted story, giving them a unique way to understand and experience different types of challenges, to work as a team to achieve a goal and to learn when they don’t know they’re being taught.
Through our story-center programming, we aim to strengthen six core developmental skills in our campers — optimism, resiliency, hope & goal-setting, emotional mastery, self-efficacy and grit & determination. We call these our Super Six skills. According to research, these traits are the key social and emotional building blocks necessary for authentic happiness and success.
Many of these skills are practiced naturally in sports. It’s our goal to infuse them into all of our programs, to help guide campers toward finding their own personal best.
