Camp Excel is a peer leadership development retreat where participants bond, team build and establish individual, group and community goals with the support of counselors and peer leaders. The rapport and trust established at Camp Excel are fundamental to each youth’s ongoing success in the Excel Program. At Camp Excel, youth participate in an intense, condensed program based upon The Excel Program’s six core components: Mentoring, Youth Advocacy, Wellness, College Readiness/Success and Career Readiness. Youth are also exposed to and participate in other outdoor, camp activities. Participants of the Excel Program will have an opportunity to attend this retreat on a rolling admissions basis.
