YOLA is a summer experience for teens to elevate their leadership through hands-on training and professional development. Participants will learn basic safety, group control, team-based games, activity facilitation, outdoor engagement, camp best practices, and more. One day per week is off-site participation in an outdoor adventure.

Daily activities include a combination of indoor and outdoor challenges ranging from physically based competitions to traditional camp activities. Different subject matter experts will lead various skill development.

Opportunities. All applicants go through an interview process to get to know more about YOLA and the team.

Teens will spend at least 5 hours a week hands-on with our day campers, implementing their activity facilitation skills. One day will be "off-site" or a field trip day. A weekly schedule is subject to change.

YOLA runs from 7 a.m.-6 p.m.
