Teen Programs


Camp Jorn’s TEVA program offers older campers increased independence and responsibility, with some of the familiarity and routine of traditional summer camp. The TEVA program is for 13-15 year olds to challenge themselves in their CJ experience.  Campers will
live in CJ’s Yurt Village. It is set slightly apart from the main camp area and offers living space and a bathhouse.

TEVA Campers following the traditional camp schedule supplemented with some TEVA only opportunities. Campers will eat many meals in our Dining Hall, but have the option to cook some of their meals at Yurt Village with their counselors. The group will participate in traditional camp classes for one week and spend the other week participating in teen programming culminating in a short off-camp wilderness trip. High ropes and the wilderness trip are often the highlights of the TEVA experience. TEVA campers will have an experience to grow through outdoor adventure, teamwork and group living.

TEVA Wilderness Trip

A beginner level three-day-two-night canoe trip (weather permitting) allows TEVA campers to grow in teamwork and outdoor living skills. TEVA campers learn the basics of paddling and wilderness living at Camp Jorn before departure. On the trip, participants test their canoeing skills, enjoy the serene beauty of the famous Chain of Lakes, and learn introductory camping and Leave No Trace practices.

Trip Level: Beginner

Through the Leadership program, it is our intent that all individuals develop the necessary skills and maturity to become effective leaders and positive world changers in their communities. The goal of the program is not only to teach participants about leadership qualities, but to foster those qualities in themselves in a safe and fun atmosphere. The experience in the Leadership program is one that participants will be able to use at camp as well as back home in leadership roles at school, on teams, in the workplace and in the community.
