Young Mentors: Coyote Leadership Training

Ages 12-16
Take your nature camp experience to the next level

So, you’ve been doing the nature camp thing for a while now and you think you’re ready to take it to the next level? Join our Young Mentors: Coyote Leadership Training program and put your skills to use. During this camp you will take the time to really work on core outdoor skills from all four Learning Pathways such as plant ID, fire making, tracking and awareness. You will be challenged to work together with your peers to solve problems and collaborate on projects. Plus, we will be teaching you the inside secrets of our camp instructors on how to train others to be awesome in nature.

Young Mentors: Coyote Leadership Training is an in-depth opportunity for teens to receive training on all the skills and knowledge involved in running camp. We view this training as essential to our CIT’s success in helping our staff to lead camps the rest of the summer. Students will:

Practice group management skills
Learn to facilitate teamwork
Learn to moderate student conflicts through effective communication
Develop Coyote Mentoring skills and the art of questioning
Practice outdoor skills and games that can be taught to campers
This camp is a prerequisite to participate in the CIT (Coyote In Training) program during the rest of the summer.
