Counselors Associates is hosting its 5th annual Positive Influence Leadership Camp this summer for students entering 6th, 7th and 8th grades in the fall of 2022. Positive Influence Leadership Camp is an 8-session, 4-week summer camp led by highly skilled mental health therapists. This camp provides the opportunity for participants to learn and practice effective leadership skills, health communication skills, and engaging social skills, all while building self-confidence through fun activities. Many of our past campers have created lasting friendships and have learned effective leadership skills.
Positive Influence Leadership Camp will be held from June 20th - July 21st (excluding the week of July 4th-8th) at our Maryville, IL, & Shiloh, IL, and Clayton, MO locations (and at nearby parks). Camp is held two days a week on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays depending on camp location. Each camp session starts at 9 a.m. and ends promptly at 12 p.m. There will be complimentary snacks for all campers. We are happy to accommodate any camper with food allergies or dietary restrictions. We do ask that all campers bring their own water bottle to each session.
Sessions will fill quickly, so do not miss your chance! Call 618-972-1568 to get your child(ren) signed up.
