Available to incoming 8th and 9th graders (and beyond!), 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! 



All FP Summer Campers practice these 5 skills essential to becoming mindful change makers:

1. Shift Perspective: See challenges as learning opportunities.
2. Find Teachable Moments: Sometimes you are the learning, sometimes you are the teacher.
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.​
