LDC Program Applications Now Being Accepted!

Leadership Development Camp (Ages 16-17)

Sessions: 3 & 4

The Leadership Development Camp (LDC) is a two-week program designed specially for our oldest campers.  This program is the ideal choice for those interested in gaining a basic understanding of working at summer camp, positive youth development, service work, and developing their leadership skills.  LDC’s assist counselors in all areas of camp life including leading activities, songs, creating a positive atmosphere, and interacting with campers of all ages.  The program develops and enhances your leadership skills, communication, decision making, teamwork, and many other opportunities for personal growth.  Continue your camp experience with the same supportive group of friends you grew up going to camp with!


LDC Campers sleep at our Adventure Camp Site during their 2-weeks at camp.  Sleeping conditions include camping cots and large canvas tents that sleep up to 8.  LDC campers go on a single night canoe adventure the Friday night between weekly sessions.  Campers are expected to be prepared for possible cooler nights similar to our Adventure Camp program.  Campers are expected to pack for 2 weeks of clothing.  A washer and dryer are available if needed.
