Camp Frequently Asked Questions
Students Today Leaders Forever is proud to continue to host High School Leadership Camp and Gap Camp.

Most commonly known for the Pay It Forward Tour, STLF has been hosting High School Leadership Camp for seven years and Gap Camp for three years.
attended camp before. Why are this
year's camps separated?
Think of it this way: Imagine camp as it was last year or the year before where High School Leadership Camp and Gap Camp were at the same location. Now multiply that by two. High School Camp and Gap Camp will still be together, there will just be two separate sessions. The demand for camp is so great that adding a second location will allow twice as many students to experience this amazing leadership opportunity.
attend any camp, regardless of my where I live?
YES!!! Any high school aged student can attend either camp location regardless of geographical location (ie: A student from Fargo is more than welcome to attend the Chicago area camp). HOWEVER, STLF will likely not provide transportation from Minnesota to Wisconsin or vice versa.
afford the whole amount of camp right now. Can I still register?
YES!!! There is a $100 down payment required to reserve your spot. The remaining balance is due 2 weeks prior to camp.
Financial Aid available?
YES!!! There is a limited amount of need-based financial aid available. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and you will automatically receive an application back.
provided in the cost?
The cost of camp includes housing, meals, a t-shirt and leadership programming. There will be an additional transportation cost if the student chooses to ride the STLF provided bus.
How will I
get to camp?
STLF will book transportation from the Chicago area to UW-Parkside at an additional cost. There is currently no STLF chartered transportation available for the St Paul camp.
the participant has a dietary restriction or medical condition?
STLF prides itself on making sure that our leadership experiences are open to any and all students regardless of medical condition. Both dining facilities at UW-Parkside and Hamline University have meals designed for students with special dietary restrictions. We also are happy to accommodate any student with a medical condition that requires special care. We ask that you let us know about any special condition so we are able to take every measure possible to ensure the safety and positive experience of the student.
the student need to bring to camp?
Check out the packing lists High School Camp and Gap Camp. A special packing list will be e-mailed to every participant prior to camp but will likely include bedding and pillow, clothes for 6 days and 5 nights, toiletries, medication, etc.
