Hayo-Went-Ha Camps

Leadership Corps Camp - Girls completing 11th grade - FOUR weeks!

Camp Description
Our proud tradition of outstanding leadership stems from a continued success and dedication to developing our own leaders. This program offered first session only trains and encourages past campers and others to become staff members. The staffed LC cabin will learn leadership skills, complete a project and gain hands-on experience with campers of all ages. Our proud tradition of outstanding leadership stems from a continued success and dedication to developing our own leaders.
LC’s will have the opportunity to be “junior counselors” during the last 2 weeks of the program. They will do almost everything as a junior leader of their cabin group. However, the age group and program they will be involved in will be determined during the course of their program. Because of this, the equipment necessary will vary for each LC.

The purpose of the Hayo-Went-Ha Camp’s LC program is to develop leadership skills that can be used to become outstanding staff members. This program is designed for people who want to lead youth in the Hayo-Went-Ha Camp’s programs, be a positive role model, and provide a transformative camping experience to youth.
