Teens at Michigan Youth Leadership Training Camp

GREENVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) Spring Break is coming to an end, which means it’s time to start thinking about plans for summer. If you went to camp as a child, you probably remember the fun you had, and more than likely you want the same experience for your own kids.

The Michigan Youth Leadership Training Camp is celebrating its fifth year. The camps is for teens headed into ninth grade through 12th grade. It’s a leadership training camp, with activities that aim to teach young people morals, ethics, problem solving, teamwork, and life skills.

MIYLT only costs families $20 for the entire week of camp, thanks to the generosity of State Farm Insurance. There are also scholarships available for families who cannot afford to pay.

The camp is open to everyone, but spots are filling up fast. It takes place July 26 through 31 at Camp Tuhsmeheta in Greenville. Registration deadline is June 1. Visit the website for details on how to sign up.
