Teen Opportunities from Leadership Academy
Leadership Academy shares your goals to help teens grow into healthy, strong young adults. That is why we have developed a range of opportunities that develop skills in outdoor recreation and community leadership. We have 9 programs to choose from for ages 13-17+ with sessions open every week of the summer. If your teen is into being outdoors, we have something to keep them busy, having fun, making friends and learning skills.
July 5-7 with a Thursday overnight: For our most adventurous teens, join us at Bells Bend Park for three days of outdoor recreation.
Opportunities to Help at Camp
Is your teen an experienced rider or sailor? Did they participate in a Leaders in Training (LIT) program at nature camp last year? If so, they are eligible to be a CIT! Counselors in Training (CIT) positions are available to teens aged 15-17 by application. If selected, your teen will attend a training session in May for a one-time $200 training fee. Limited paid staff positions are also available at all camps for teens over 16 years old. Visit our employment page or email for more information about working at camp!
Being at camp is one of the most life-impacting internships in the world. Counselors and Counselors in Training (CIT) say they gain skills in communication, solving complex problems, and confidence and that they became the best version of themselves through working at camp. Plus, camp experience is great for college applications and resumes.
