The Taiwanese American Citizens’ League (TACL) Leadership Identity Development (LID) Camp is back this summer! This cultural summer camp is designed for students ages 12-18, focusing on the leadership development of Asian Americans and communication skills. LID Camp counselors lead students through five days of cultural workshops, team-building activities, and educational games. Relaunched in 2009, LID camp has grown in size and scope with awesome workshops, speakers, and activities.
The Taiwanese American Citizens’ League “Leader Identity Development” (TACL-LID) camp has a storied past. It began in the 1980’s as a way for 1st generation to connect with 2nd generation Taiwanese Americans. The camp has since transformed into one focused on youth to instill a sense of leadership, identity, and community. With a core group of college counselors, campers are transported away from home to various campgrounds each summer and winter. There, they participate in team-building activities and cultural workshops such as rope courses, learning to speak Taiwanese, and how to deal with the various pressures of adolescence.
At the very core of this camp is community. Every activity is separated by big group or small group, which the counselors will lead. Don’t miss out on this fun and exciting time at camp!
