This camp is designed to build the following character traits:
Curiosity: Curiosity -- and a sense of adventure!--about yourself and the world around you is key to success at this camp! You'll be encouraged to think more deeply on what it means to be a global citizen.
Independence: Nothing encourages independence like time in the outdoors! Gain the confidence to travel away from your family while getting out of your comfort zone in the wild outdoors.
Bring your leadership skills to the next level! This experience is ideal for those looking to unplug and get a hefty dose of nature this summer. Make new friends, work to conserve unique ecosystems, and get intimately acquainted with the Colorado River. Learn from local leaders and meet teens from across North America (and the world!) as you spend two weeks working, playing, and learning together.
Spend a week on the Colorado River, rafting, swimming and camping your way along this picturesque wilderness with experienced guides. We'll spend time volunteering with the US National Forest Service, clearing trails and assisting with other maintenance projects. Experience the unique foods and culture of the southwest USA before heading back into nature at Arches National Park. We'll also dive deep to discover our individual paths, including exploring our leadership styles and professional and educational goals for the future.
