Hopa Mountain Youth Summer Camp

Hopa Mountain’s Youth Leadership Program is now accepting applications for the 2013 summer Youth Leadership camps for teens 13-17. The camp for Park County teens will be held June 17-21, and the Gallatin County camp will be July 8-12.

These “Envision Your Future” summer camps are free-of-charge for accepted participants. In these week long residential camps, youth will participate in outdoor problem-solving and skill-building initiatives, team-building exercises, art and science activities, and community service projects.

This summer’s camps also include white water rafting, hiking, and a tour of Carroll College in Helena. Each summer camp is followed by weekly meetings throughout the school year with community service projects, team building activities, and college preparation exercises.

Hopa Mountain’s Youth Leadership Program promotes positive and sustained educational experiences for Gallatin and Park County teens by fostering direct interaction with the environment, the arts, respected adults, and the greater community.

Hopa Mountain is a Bozeman-based non-profit that invests in rural and tribal citizen leaders, adults and youth, who are working to improve education, ecological health, and economic development in their home towns. Citizen leaders are those individuals who step forward when others look to them for help. Hopa Mountain provides these leaders with training, mentoring, and networking opportunities. Promoting and supporting youth leadership and community service is core to Hopa Mountain’s mission.
