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 will enjoy
participating 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.
