During this outdoor leadership day camp participants head out on the trail or water for (5) consecutive days where they will engage in local conservation projects with their peers. There, they will learn firsthand what our local community and environmental needs providing them the opportunity to develop their own wildland ethic. With our LEAD SM curriculum serving as the foundation, participants are able to gain confidence as they lead their peers to accomplish project related goals and objectives, as well as, hone their newly found outdoor skills.
