Teen Leadership Camp is a camp for teens where they can engage in a variety of activities that build their leadership skills.  During the week, teen campers participate in team-building activities and gain an understanding of behavior and risk management, supervision, water safety, and project planning.  Working with trained YMCA staff, teens learn effective methods for interacting with younger children.  Each week has a unique focus and includes fun filled trips, swim days, and other teen-chosen activities.
