UNH Leadership Camp

A 5-day intensive Leadership Retreat which takes place over Winter Break.  Please see below for more information.

Camp Merrowvista, Tuftonboro, NH
An unforgettable 5-day fun learning experience!

Trained facilitators and charismatic guest speakers will take participants on a leadership development journey centered in cutting-edge theories and approaches. Throughout the week, participants will work in large groups, in small groups, and individually to explore a variety of leadership concepts including:

  • the importance of CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS in leadership
  • EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE and how to boost their “EQ”
  • leadership as a process that should be used to SERVE others

Participants will work throughout the week to create a Leadership Action Plan that will help them bring concepts to life to create positive, enduring, and meaningful change back on the UNH campus, the surrounding community and the larger world. More importantly, UNH Leadership Camp will provide participants with the opportunity to make connections and create relationships that can last a lifetime!

UNH Leadership Camp is NOT yesterday’s leadership—it’s TOMORROW’s leadership. Live on the cutting edge.
