Our Leaders-in-Training Program gives teens life-changing opportunities to take on meaningful leadership roles at camp, push their limits on a five-day expedition in the wilderness and grow their outdoor skills – all towards building lasting knowledge and experience they can use throughout their lives.
Under the supervision of our experienced instructors, Leaders-In-Training have the opportunity to work behind the scenes in every aspect of the camp experience, from teaching outdoor activities to planning all-camp events. Along the way, they develop solid leadership and hands-on teaching experience, plus the confidence to put them to use.
Their two-week session also includes an extended, 5-day backpacking trip, a high-flying experience at the Treehouse Adventure Park, the chance to earn a First Aid certification and daily opportunities to engage in their favorite adventure sports. And that’s on top of all the other incredible moments—playing games, going for impromptu hikes, sharing stories, hanging out with new friends—that make overnight camp so unforgettable.
