Youth Leadership Program

High School aged students - rising sophomores / juniors / seniors - are invited to join us at Future Stars Youth Leadership Program (YLP) this summer! Our program combines the fun of being a participant with important life skills such as leadership, personal development, teamwork, and communication; all under the watchful eyes of our experienced educators and coaches.

Working with guidance from our camp and program director(s), YLP participants will observe and assist in all aspects of the camp program and daily activities, while receiving performance feedback in a constructive environment, helping to build self-confidence and interpersonal skills.

YLP participants will be assigned a program for a given camp session from the director and camp administrative staff, 'working' with our younger campers in either Grades K-2 or 3-6.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to develop skills that will last a lifetime.
