Teen LEADership Conference

Do you want your C.I.Ts, Junior Counselors, and other teens to arrive at camp with useful decision making and youth development skills? ACA is proud to bring you a special event allowing teens to gain some of the same knowledge that camp professionals get out of the Tri-State CAMP Conference. The event will provide teens with leadership skills they can use at school and in the community, as well as camp skills they can use throughout the summer. Teens can add the Conference to their (ever growing) resumes and the conference will help them reevaluate camp as the life changing experience it truly is.
