Young Adults, Rising 9th & 10th Grades

All the Details

High achieving young individuals develop essential skills through leadership opportunities and hands-on camp experiences while being mentored by ESF’s highly trained adult staff. Participants engage in professional development and explore all aspects of camp life including shadowing in camp groups and working with activity specialists throughout the summer. Additional activities include special project-based initiatives, ongoing coaching, and more. There’s even time each day for recreation and socializing with friends!

The goal of this robust program is to create a bridge between being an ESF camper and an ESF staff member. We transition campers into counselors creating independent young leaders who can contribute positively to camp and their community. We teach individuals to be positive role models and responsible leaders, while successfully preparing them for future opportunities with ESF. Space is limited!
