The 2017 Camp LEAD season is over.
Thank you to all campers who participated this year!

A Memorable Summer Experience

Camp LEAD is an intensive, one-week summer day camp that engages 5th-8th grade students at a pivotal point in their development.

We use custom designed outdoor activities to help students learn about cooperation, creative thinking, team building, effective communication and self-leadership.

Never the Same Camp Twice

Camp LEAD sessions run Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. at schools, community centers and corporate partner facilities throughout Northeast Ohio and the mid-Atlantic Region.

Camp LEAD‘s curriculum is re-designed every summer so your student will get a unique and fun experience each time. In 2016, the central theme was based on the hit TV show The Amazing Race. Camp LEAD 2017 will be based on the show Shark Tank, guiding campers through the process of planning, creating and presenting a professional business pitch to a local corporation.

The Impact is Clear

What lead me to participate in the Camp ELA is, I was in Club ELA at my school. I attend Heskett MS in Bedford Heights. Club Lead taught me that there was more to me that I didn’t know. I have a lot of potential inside of me. The programming taught me that it’s okay to be you and that you just have to block out all the negative things that happen in life. ELA made me realize leaders are not born, but they are made. ELA taught me leadership skills.

It teaches you how to communicate on a different level, shows you how important team work is, and it is a lot of fun!
