Camp Woolman: Teen Leadership Camp - a few spots left!
Is your teen looking for adventure and life-long memories? Our Teen Leadership Camp offers 15 - 17 year olds the chance to take on new wilderness challenges, exercise leadership on multiple levels, and practice skills vital to becoming independent backpackers and trip leaders - all while forming a truly unique and unforgettable community. Nestled in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California, this summer Camp Woolman is offering Beginner Backpacking (July 12 - July 25) fand Advanced Backpacking (June 28 - July 11) for teens.

Depending on the selected session, teens will go on backpacking trips anywhere from 3 to 10 days long, on which they will learn important trail skills from their counselors, including trail cooking, topo map reading, orienteering, and trip planning. When not on the trail, our TLCers play instrumental roles as community leaders for our Wombat Campers (aged 9-14) - designing and facilitating activities for the younger campers at least once a session. In each TLC session, there are always endless opportunities to cook, dance, play, swim, art and craft, and whatever else we can come up with during our breaks from hiking and working with Wombat Camp. Summer after summer we watch our teens become independent and confident hikers, empathetic and engaged community members, and we see them shine their brightest in the company of strong friendships, stunning mountain views, and life-long memories.
