C5 Flint and Hammer Year
Located in Ashby, MA, Camp Lapham is home for the first and third year of the Crossroads C5 Leaders Program. Beginning as rising 8th-graders, youth attend Camp Lapham for 25 days during the summer. While there, C5 Leaders develop and practice their leadership skills through various experiential activities and workshops designed to support participants in learning how to lead both themselves and others in their communities. We work to continuously challenge participants to push themselves beyond their comfort zones and find their voices as changemakers for the future.
Camp Lapham offers a variety of traditional camp activities, such as sports and games, a climbing wall, boating, and art, while also providing various experiential activities and workshops that support participants to develop their leadership skills and voices.
Enrollment for the C5 Leaders Program at Camp Lapham is completed through a competitive nomination and application process. Beginning the summer prior to the start of their 8th grade year and culminating at the end of their senior year, the C5 Leaders Program requires a five year commitment.
