Junior Leader Program 2018 Application

We are excited to invite 15 and 16 year-olds to apply to our Junior Leader Program, which will take place in July and August of 2018!  This will be an opportunity to enjoy fun Echo Pond camp activities and also learn outdoor leadership skills.

There will be two parts to the Junior Leader Program:

  1. Junior Leaders will attend our Outdoor Leadership Training Day, taking place Friday, July 6th in St. John’s, and participate in training lead by our wonderful Echo Pond staff. This camp will include: team-building activities, communication skills training, conflict resolution, and training on social and environmental justice.
  2. Junior Leaders will attend 1 of 2 camps for 7-9 year-olds (either July 16-18 or August 13-15) and assist our camp staff in running the programs. Junior Leaders will arrive at the Brother Brennan Environmental Education on the Sunday afternoon before the camp begins, the following Monday morning. Training will include orienteering, hands-on instruction in canoeing and fire-building, and more!

Applications will be taken on a first-come, first-serve basis, until program is full.

 Registration fee is $250 and should be paid after notification of acceptance into program.
