Spend part of your summer in a dynamic environment with incredible staff and inspirational young people! Compasses are rising 11th-grade leaders in their 4th year of our 5-year leadership program. If you’re interested in pursuing a career in education, social work, psychology, or facilitation of outdoor adventure activities, this is the opportunity for you!

The C5 Leaders Program is a five-year summer and school year program where youth develop and practice their leadership skills through various experiential activities and workshops designed to inspire to lead themselves, their peers, and inspire their communities. We believe that our youth are the next generation of leaders. Programming is intentionally sequenced and centered on youth agency, experiential learning, and reflection.
