YMCA Camp Elphinstone

Ages 16 to 17

This three-week program allows campers the chance to apply skills learned in Leadership Development 1 and continue to grow as leaders. This program emphasizes initiative, communication and the group care skills necessary to be a strong leader in a camp setting or elsewhere. Participants work directly with groups of young campers to practice first-hand their teaching and group care skills. Applicants must successfully complete a telephone interview before final acceptance into the program.

LD2 Participants are selected based on leadership interest, experience and potential. Campers receive instruction and examination in Bronze Medallion/Bronze Cross. Some school districts may accept these certifications towards partial credits.

Please note that YMCA volunteers must be 17 years old and YMCA staff must be 18 years old by the first day of summer camp. For these reasons, we strongly suggest campers be the minimum age listed before they join the program.
