Journey Program Staff

Ashford, CT

Seasonal Summer Staff

Journey Programs include both Hero's Journey® and Champion’s Journey programs. Both are designed for 16 - 18 year olds who have aged into the AYA program or are new to Camp entirely. The staff will work closely with each other, nurses, volunteers and groups of 12-20 participants, while facilitating various programmatic elements throughout the summer. Each staff member is responsible for providing an opportunity for participants to challenge their perceived personal limits and experience camaraderie, self-discovery and appreciation.

Hero's Journey® Program

Hero’s Journey® is located at our basecamp location in the Connecticut woods. Participants learn important outdoor skills including fire starting, cooking and backpacking while also learning Wilderness First Aid and Search and Rescue skills. Participants experience their own unique Hero’s Journey® while learning about themselves and fellow participants to see themselves as the "hero of their own story" by the end of the week.

Champion's Journey Program

The Champion’s Journey Program is located at Camp in our Young Adult Lodge. By utilizing the Camp setting, participants experience team building and leadership exercises designed to discover the "champion within." Participant experiences are facilitated through the metaphor of the star life cycle while mastering two Camp program areas to build confidence, resiliency and to become a true Camp Champion.
