Pre-Teen Youth Leadership Weekend:
This weekend will provide an opportunity to
meet and work with our Guard Pre-Teen Youth
for minimum cost.
The weekend will expand our Guard Youths skills in
communication, resilience, and critical thinking.
During the end-of-training wrap-up,
the youth will be able to provide feedback about
the training, what they learned,
and what the CYP can provide going forward.
The main focus of the weekend will be a
Camp Robinson service project planned, designed,

The project will be one that the weekend participants
can return and see growth from year to year.
