SPEAR



Member registration opens March 1. Non-members can register beginning March 15.

NEW THIS YEAR! We are excited to introduce SPEAR (Special Program to Enhance Adolescent Responsibility), a specialty teen leadership program for ages 13-14. This new day camp features many activities and experiential learning opportunities for our young leaders. They will learn to communicate, interact with others, grow food for our local partners, volunteer and promote social development with local businesses and community partners. They also will create a positive impact while working with others their own age and developing positive characteristics of a young leader. Campers will complete a workbook and a speech at the end of their two-week session. They will share what they learned and the importance of being a positive role model and identify the type of leadership qualities they want to build on and then model to others.

Space is limited to 12 campers per session. Sessions are two-week intervals and only run Monday, Wednesday and Friday of each week. We will be swimming at the Y the first Friday of each session. Please note, campers may get wet during other activities on non-swimming days. We will take a half-day field trip on the second Monday of each session. Then on the second Friday of each session, campers will give their final speeches at North Middleton Park. The day will include a picnic lunch and water activities. Parents are invited to join us for the speeches at noon. Activities will include bike trips, photography, farm-to-table growing, canoeing, day hikes, etc. A packed lunch is needed each day and old clothes are preferred.​
