Cali Camp’s Junior Leader “JL” Program is offered to teenagers 14-17 years of age. The program provides for training experiences in leadership with children, peers and adults in a recreational setting. It also provides an opportunity to gain valuable leadership skills, build positive self images and enhance self esteem. We believe our program is an excellent learning experience for everyone involved.
JL's rotate weekly into different Cali Camp groups, this way they get experience working with different ages, genders and specialties. During the course of the summer JLs participate closely with a variety of Counselors and Specialists. In addition to these group responsibilities, the JLs also have a leadership class once a day to develop their skills in working with children and peers. We expect JLs to participate in all camp activities with their group of campers, and even schedule in some time once a week to let loose at an activity with their fellow JLs.
