Red Cross offering leadership development camp at Xavier University

Looking for something different for your teenager this summer?

Registration is now open for the 35th annual Red Cross Leadership Development Camp. It’s a 4-day, 3-night conference for youth ages 13-17 and entering grades 8-12 held on the campus of Xavier University from July 12-15.

Last year, 158 teenagers from 77 different area schools attended this unique camp designed to build leadership skills in a positive and fun environment. Campers participate in small and large group sessions focusing on public speaking, project management, decision-making and other leadership topics. Evening social activities round out the camp experience.

The camp fee is $225 with need-based financial assistance available on a limited basis.

We are looking for campers who are ready to embrace new activities, meet new friends, and participate in leadership related activities that will stretch them out of their comfort zone.

Applications are processed on a rolling basis, with a May 15 deadline. Email
