High School Camp Hero

High School Summer Leadership Camps

Through hands-on experiences and interactive activities, campers learn elements of leadership that enhance self-discipline, respect, and accountability. To set the foundations for success, campers engage in team-building exercises, leadership training, physical training, outdoor adventures, and enjoy recreation time on our beachfront campus in Carlsbad, CA. Attending the high school leadership camp enhances college applications, leads to new life skills and passions, and creates new friendships. As a result of the camp experience, a number of campers apply to the academic year program.

Setting Foundations for Success

Campers learn to focus on achievement while overcoming physical and mental challenges. Using a creative approach to leadership education, we incorporate group instruction, hands-on learning, and outdoor adventures. Those interested in receiving advanced instruction concentrating on citizenship and leadership skills have the opportunity to participate in the Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps Leadership Education and Training course. This introductory four-week credit-producing course reinforces confidence and focuses on the core values of honor, integrity, and selfless service.
