Junior Leadership (Age 13 – 14)

Junior Leadership is a small group of future outdoor leaders, experiencing all that Adventures has to offer while fostering their own leadership goals. This dynamic camp will expose participants to all of our program areas – both on land & water – and a variety of instructional & leadership styles. Focal areas will include group management, teaching & learning styles, facilitation skills, and child development. Junior Leaders will observe and support other programs, develop leadership goals, and cultivate relationships to last a lifetime.

Junior Leaders are our rockstar campers, role models for our younger community members and future staff to look up to. As such, Junior Leaders agree to a Code of Conduct while participating in this two-week camp.

Senior Leadership (Age 14 – 15)

Senior Leaders are campers who are applying and refining their leadership and instructional skills in the outdoor industry. Under the supervision of our talented instructors, Senior Leaders will select a skill area from our program offerings where they will develop and achieve leadership goals.

Senior Leaders are often our oldest campers, often future team members for our highly-skilled staff. They are campers who are interested in a future instructing in the Adventure or Outdoor industry, and are ready to begin to develop those skills.

Participation in Junior Leadership is not required to apply to Senior Leadership.

Prospective participants must complete the online application in order to complete registration, which will include a letter of recommendation. This will be sent via email once a prospective camper is added to the Senior Leadership waitlist in CampDoc registration.
