2025 Summer Session dates are July 4-12 (Senior Campers), July 6-12 (Junior Campers).




Our Junior Camp Program is the perfect way to start or continue your YLCC journey. With a 7-day program jam-packed with activities and experiences, there's something for everyone.

As campers get closer to high school, Intermediates will take a deeper dive into creating a “life-map”. Research shows that students that take the time to understand the value of goal-setting are 80% more successful. Here's where campers begin to see the value of a team, the power of working together. Campers works towards a new level of self-directed journaling and reflection.
