Area Leadership
If you are interested in becoming an area leader or holding a lead position, you will be directed to a page with additional essay questions.

Being an Area Leader will require additional training and preparation prior to camp starting, as early as January. Being in a lead position will also require elevated responsibilities. Please only apply for these positions if you are prepared to take on these roles in that area.
