Camp Jorn’s TEVA program offers older campers increased independence and responsibility, with some of the familiarity and routine of traditional summer camp. This first leadership experience provides some coed interaction while preserving a single gender trip and experiences. TEVA campers spend part of the day with fellow TEVAs gaining leadership skills through an array of team building and thought-provoking activities. Teva campers will participate in instructional activities their first week.  Cabin activities are spent focusing on service-leadership and preparing for their wilderness trip through training. Each TEVA session includes the opportunity for small groups to experience a 5-7 or 6-8 day wilderness canoe, back pack or bike trip. TEVAs will leave with a greater sense of themselves and skills to be a leader.

Their schedule will consist of spending time with our day camp and resident camp programs to gain group management and youth development skills through experiential learning. CIT’s will go on wilderness trip as well as develop and complete a service project that will enhance future camper experiences. After leaving camp, CIT’s will be prepared to take their next step in their Camp Jorn journey.

***NEW Camp Assistants
Fee: $0
Ages: 17
Sessions: Any 2 Weeks of Summer or more!

Camp Assistants (CAs) is designed for youth that will be seniors in the fall. CA’s spend a portion of their time each day in leadership development activities and training. The remainder of each day is spent “giving back” in all areas of camp. Time will be spent helping in the office, kitchen, maintenance, and program areas! This unique opportunity provides an environment for personal growth, as well as a strong sense of responsibility in performing the necessary roles for the camp. Time may be counted for service hours and will definitely be great for resumes and applications for school or future jobs.
