At the Y, we believe leadership is a skill that can be learned and is essential for success in life. We understand that developing and practicing these skills is necessary for teens to recognize their full potential.

Camp Finberg’s Summer Leadership Program places teens in supportive group settings where they can practice leading peers and develop essential leadership tools. Our Leadership Campers participate in seminars, workshops, games, and tasks that develop and exercise skills in teamwork and communication. Meanwhile, they still have opportunities to participate in traditional summer camp fun!

Offered in four 2-week sessions, the Summer Leadership Development Program is a great opportunity for young people to grow in confidence, build lifelong friendships, and develop their leadership potential in settings that extend far beyond the camp realm.
