If your 5-10 year old child can comfortably spend the whole day away from home, enjoys being around many other children in an urban setting and likes being outdoors, then our full-day KIDS Camp may be for them! KIDS Camp also offers a Teen Leadership Program for children ages 11 and up.

Teen Leadership Program
Spend a week learning leadership skills and techniques to last a lifetime. During your week as a JC, you will have the opportunity to work side by side with our counselors. Your journey in the JC program will include how to lead a group of campers, teach arts & crafts and games, and how to work in a group with your fellow JCs. If you decide to join us for more than one week of the program, you’ll build upon your leadership skills by taking on a more active role and work side by side with our counselors.
