Leadership Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Leadership Summer Camps for Kids & Teens

Leadership summer camps can take many forms; some focus on outdoor adventures, while others focus on classroom activities. Regardless of the format, leadership summer camps show students the attitude and attributes it takes to be a leader. Summer leadership programs help students develop interpersonal, public speaking, and personal expression skills. And, with a group of peers who share the same motivation and enthusiasm for leadership programs, campers build social connections and start to form a valuable network of friends. After a summer leadership program, elementary, middle, and high school students return to school ready to emerge as stars in their grade.

Ages, Tuition, and Session Length at Leadership Summer Camps

Overnight leadership summer camps are typically developed for students between the ages of 8 and 18. Campers are typically grouped by age and grade level to maximize learning and social opportunities.

Sleep-away leadership camps typically run 1 week, 2 week, 3 week, and 7 week sessions. Costs vary considerably by program, location, instructors, and facilities and can range anywhere from $350 to $1,350 per week. In some cases, scholarships may be available for exceptional candidates.

Choosing the Best Leadership Summer Camp

There are many important questions that families should consider when choosing a leadership summer camp. Is the program wilderness based or classroom based? Where are students housed? What qualities and values does the program strive to instill? What type of certification do teachers and instructors hold? Is the camp purely academic, or are other activities available to campers? Does the program offer credit that can be attributed to high school or college?

To help answer these questions and match your family with the appropriate program, call a Choice Camps Academic Summer Camp Placement Expert at 617-264-0939. We'll help you find the perfect academic or pre-college camp for your boy, girl, or teen!
