Available to incoming 8th graders and older, who have previously participated in an FP program, the
FP Leadership Program gives your child the opportunity to transition from camper to counselor. They will
work as part of a group to design and deliver unique and inspiring camp experiences. These young adults
get to participate in our summer camps while also taking on the roles and responsibilities of a junior
counselor. The program includes mentoring, opportunities for reflection and growth, and a focus on
developing your individual leadership style. The fee to participate as a junior counselor is $300 for Week 1
and $400 for Week 2. Come Join Us!
Both FP Superheroes and FP Wayfinders will practice these 5 skills essential to becoming mindful change makers:
1. Shift Perspective: See challenges as learning opportunities.
2. Find Teachable Moments: Recognize when it's your turn to teach, and when it's your turn to learn.
3. Connect Positively with the World: Be in the moment and enjoy what the world has to offer.
4. Connect Positively with Yourself and Others: Be proud of what makes you unique and find positive connection with others.
5. Celebrate: Capture the moment and take time enjoy your successes.
