Leadership Training Academy (Grades 8-12)

Summer 2024 registration is open!


Become a Teen Leader


Learn, Grow and Develop Job Skills, & Help Bring the Fun to Summer Day Camp!

Young leaders in grades 8-12 will develop skills, build confidence and learn techniques unique to the Leadership Academy, and will use these skills to assist camp counselors in working with kids at Summer Day Camp. Leaders will receive professional coaching, and gain mentors, friends, great memories and great experiences!

Many participants in KidSpirit's Leadership Training Academy have continued to use the skills they learn, and many have gone on to be employed as Camp Counselors in future years!

Corvallis School District provides lunch for youth under 18 each day during summer camp.

Friday Dress Up Day

There's casual Friday, and there's Dress Up Friday. All staff members dress up every Friday based on a predetermined theme. We highly encourage campers to join in the fun and dress up as well! All dress up items should allow campers to actively participate in the day's classes. Dress up days are not mandatory for campers, but we love seeing the outfits they come up with!
