Teen Leadership Programs

Continue your camp skills and gain meaningful leadership skills while exploring our fields and forest, teens find a path of self discovery.

Leaders-in-Training (LITs)

Ages 13 & 14

LITs are Summer WildQuest campers ages 13 & 14 who want to practice leadership skills like communication and teamwork, receive feedback from mentors and peers, and have fun! The LITs are exposed to the responsibility and diligence it takes to become a leader, while learning about their role in a sustainable future. Through exciting team building challenges and projects, LITs have the opportunity to practice leadership skills like communication and teamwork, receive feedback from mentors and peers, and have fun! LITs are guided to examine their personal leadership style and given greater independence within the supportive camp community.

2024 LIT Weeks

Week 3 July 8 – 12 Creature Features: From paws to feathers, scales and claws, get ready for a week of all things animals. Discover how different animals talk, eat, move and play as we explore Prescott Farm’s ponds, forest and fields to investigate what the animals are doing.

Week 4 July 15 – 19 STEAM Team: Science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics is our camp focus for the week! Come explore the way nature inspires human art, invention, sustainable energy, and design. Get ready to think, build, and test your critical thinking skills!

Week 5 July 22 – 26 Farm and Garden Adventures: Meet some visiting farm animals and enjoying our gardens. Prepare tasty snacks from garden-harvested goodies. Learn to cook with eggs from our hens and harvest honey from our beehives.

Week 6 July 29 – August 2 Survival: What would it take to find food, water, and shelter in the woods? Try cooking over a fire, building shelters, and finding your way as you learn wilderness skills that will help you stay out of survival mode and focus on the fun.

Week 7 August 5 – 9 Kids Can Cook: By August our gardens are bursting with fruits and veggies ready to be harvested and cooked into delicious treats! Join us for a week of culinary exploration and experimentation as we learn to prepare wholesome, healthy food from the garden to our plates inside and out. The week culminates with a made from scratch pizza party!
