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. Come Join Our Team!
