  • Leaders MUST be available to attend the entirety of their Adventure. The complete Adventure schedule will be released in August to all applicants before decisions are made.
  • Leader Retreat: There will be one leadership retreat in the Fall. This date will be released in August to all applicants so they can confirm their schedules.
  • The Leader Role has two 6 week sprints. The first 6 weeks is dedicated solely to fundraising and recruiting for the Adventure. The second 6 weeks (leading up to the Adventure) involves all programming preparation, the identification and pairing of campers and counselors, and all communication.
