High School Camp


CLC is now available for high school students (rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors) in a week-long camp! We believe that with practice, every student can develop strong, transferable leadership skills. Explore your leadership potential, build new skills, and add an incredibly unique leadership experience to your college application by joining the Collegiate Leadership Competition (CLC) for its inaugural summer leadership camp. This fast-paced, five-day leadership bootcamp utilizes the same training methods used by CLC’s 1,000-plus students and alumni. The experiential format develops your skills at a fast and fun pace. Participants gain a clear picture of their strengths and opportunities for growth. Culminating in a final team competition, participants will create lasting relationships with a community of peers and coaches who are enthusiastic about leadership development and their bright futures.
