Get Involved/Middle School Camp

Middle School Leadership Camp 2015

August 6-9 At Sand Hill Lake Retreat Center in Fosston, MN

There is a bus to take Twin Cities area students to and from camp. 

Registration launches in APRIL

How is this camp different from the Pay It Forward Tour?

The Pay It Forward Tour is an amazing experience that focuses heavily on community service, travel and building relationships.  Middle School Leadership Camp, however, strives to dive deeper into teamwork, positive relationships, self reflection and what it means to be a young leader.

What Kinds of Activities Do Students Do?

Students participate in games and activities that promote team building, leadership training, self-reflection and commitment to social action.  Each day is specifically structured around a different theme of leadership including Teamwork, Communication and Action.  All of the activities are centered around the day's theme.

What Are The Accomodations Like?

STLF will be at a new retreat center this year, located on beautiful Sand Hill Lake in Fosston, MN. There is transportation available to and from camp from the Twin Cities and Fargo/Moorhead. Students stay in modern, lakefront cabins with bunk beds and bathrooms either in or adjacent to the building.  The Sand Hill staff prepares 3 fresh meals per day and can accomodate any dietary restriction. 

What is the Price of Camp?

Normal Price:  $265  

There is a $75 non-refundable down payment required to register for camp.
Cancellation within 48 Hours of Camp will result in NO REFUND.

What is Included in the Price of Camp?

All housing, meals, a t-shirt, leadership programming and fun extra's (watersports, campfires, etc) are included in the price of camp.  There is a limited amount of financial aid available to those who qualify by e-mailing financialaid@stlf.net
