Jr. Leader Training Camp

Jr. Leader Training Camp is where we find our upcoming recreation leaders for the Time 2 Play Neighborhood Playgrounds Program, Summer Blast Day Camps, Lewis Lemon Community Center, and Washington Park Community Center. Teens will learn leadership skills in the areas of how to lead sports games, recreational games, basic group planning, and communication skills. Campers will get the chance to experience first-hand what it’s like to work as a leader with the Rockford Park District. Teens will be placed at sites based on number of years in camp, performance in camp, and location needs.
