The Youth Leadership & Life Skills program, known as Young Global Leaders (YGL), is a comprehensive week-long initiative within L&E World Camps. Tailored for 13-15 year olds, it offers a structured platform for personal development. Participants engage in diverse sessions emphasizing communication, language proficiency and teamwork. Additionally, the program includes an overnight Wilderness Experience, designed to test navigation and survival skills. Core attributes such as honesty, integrity, adaptability and the ability to accept constructive feedback are fostered. The YGL curriculum prioritizes the cultivation of essential life skills, ensuring participants emerge equipped with the tools for success.


Globally, there is a focus on leadership and teamwork as well as recognising vital life skills including:

  • Honesty and integrity
  • Positive attitude, motivation, ability to learn
  • Dependability and responsibility
  • Adaptability and flexibility
  • Ability to take constructive feedback
  • Hard work and ethics


At Young Global Leaders, we uphold a set of values that permeate every facet of our program. Here, campers delve into an immersive environment where they explore, question and analyze the world around them. Through dynamic forums for debate and discussion, we prioritize empathy and understanding, fostering an atmosphere where diverse perspectives are not only welcomed but celebrated.

Our approach is founded on the belief that the ability to challenge our own viewpoints and engage constructively with differing opinions is indispensable in the 21st century. By encouraging campers to question assumptions and engage in dialogue with those holding different perspectives, we aim to cultivate critical thinking skills and deepen self-awareness. Moreover, this promotes a nuanced and empathetic approach to complex topics, preparing campers to navigate a world rich in diversity and complexity.

This philosophy serves as the bedrock of our Young Global Leaders program and is integral to our morning sessions, where campers engage in thought-provoking discussions and exercises designed to hone their critical thinking abilities.
