Wilderness Leadership campers experience immersive nature-based skills training, inspiring challenges, and outrageously fun activities under the guidance of seasoned wilderness instructors. Leadership Overnight Camp offers up to a 7 week long session for boys and girls 13-15 who are looking to develop leadership skills. This program challenges teens to step out of their comfort zone, meet new people, and discover their own ability to lead and inspire themselves and others. Leadership Camp is designed to build confidence, friendships and outdoor skills - and offer some of the most positive formative experiences in a young person's life. Campers in the Leadership Program learn communication skills, conflict mediation, and help plan and facilitate group activities. Although the emphasis of this program is on leadership skill development, Leadership campers get plenty of time to relax, play games, and splash in the pool! Overnight Camps are a perfect opportunity for youth to safely put their skills to the test. What your kids learn with us are truly helpful life skills that will travel with them far beyond the camp experience. Wilderness campers join our lead staff members on paddling, swimming, or hiking adventure each week. As well as have an option to join us on a Canoe Expedition down the historic Connecticut River. Countless skills will be learned while playing games and enjoying the water during our hot summers. Our girls and boys sleeping shelters are located on opposite ends of camp. Our traditional Adirondack shelters can be used during the week for sleeping or Leadership Campers can build shelters as well if they choose or sleep in their own hammocks. The week for Leadership Overnight Camp begins with drop-off on Sunday, and lasts through to pick-up on the appropriate Saturday.
