"Our commitment is long-term. Youth may enroll in LVC programming as early as age 7 and their progressive journey of exploration, discovery, and character development spans into adulthood." Learn more about how Lake Valley Camp accomplishes our mission here.
When participants begin their freshman year of high school, they enter the Leadership Training Program. This program focuses on the development of employment and leadership skills; the discovery and exploration of self and community; and civic identity and global citizenship. The Leadership Training program is delivered during the summer and throughout the school year.
Favorite Moment: “During a debrief, following my second LT2 Workshop on the topic of Stereotypes and Diversity, one of our LT 2s, shared that he was glad school year programming is a safe place to talk about issues that students deal with regularly. He shared he never expected camp to be a place where students would be engaged in controversial topics but he was glad it happened.” - Lynette Martin (LTProgram Manager)
