Crew Resources

Crew members are vitally important and are in a unique position to minister and help ensure that all students have a positive and beneficial time at LEAD. The following resources are provided in order for you to know what is expected so that you can best function as part of the LEAD Team.  Please feel free to call the SSI office for clarification or questions.

Sample of Legislative Final Sessions Watch videos of the final House and Senate debates from the final session on Friday. If you have never seen the culmination of what the students are working toward, it would be helpful for you to have this framework.



Crew arrive on campus the Saturday before camp starts (June 25, July 9, July 23). Crew orientation check-in is between 4:45-6:15pm. After checking in, crew will have an opportunity to set up their dorm room. Dinner will start at 5:30. Those not coming for dinner should arrive by 6:15 at the latest. Any arriving after 6:15 will set up their dorm rooms at the end of the night after our last crew session (around 10pm).

Students are welcome to come with crew members on Saturday, but they will not sit in on the volunteer orientation and will instead have to occupy themselves either in the dorms or specified areas on campus. Until students check in for LEAD on Sunday afternoon, crew members will be responsible for any students who came with them including communicating expectations and knowing where they are on campus.

Crew are dismissed after student check-out is completed on Friday (usually around 7pm). For those who are able to stay, we will continue cleaning up campus and then will have a pizza dinner and hang out the remainder of the evening. The remainder of campus clean-up will happen Saturday morning.

SSI will provide all meals starting with dinner Saturday evening through breakfast Saturday morning after camp.

Additional Day-of Arrival Details (To be posted closer to camp)



As you probably know, SSI is a non-profit. We are dedicated to keeping our programs affordable and accessible to students in all financial situations. You can help make this possible when you consider covering the cost of your room and board for each week ($160).
