Aspiring Leaders

Aspiring Leaders (AL) is the first of a three-tiered leadership program at Y Camp that instills campers with the confidence and compassion it takes to be a leader.

This introductory leadership program helps teens identify and begin to cultivate leadership skills such as listening, public speaking, positive role modeling, and peer guidance.

Through group discussions and role-play, teens will determine what leaders say and do before they practice those actions with peers. Interacting directly with youth campers during camptivities and leading the leather ceremonies provide opportunities for each AL to find their voice. Evenings will be a mix of reflections of the day’s events, all-camp activities, camp out and campfires.

Aspiring leaders share a yurt or a platform tent with the Leaders in Training campers of the same gender.
