Community Youth Camp June 10-13, 2024 • KIPP Columbus


Camp leaders play a key role on our team. We cannot run a successful camp without them. Interested in what it takes to help at Community Youth Camp? Here are the basics.

Camp Leaders

Campers will be divided into age groups as they learn from coaches, athletes and teachers in our community. Camp leaders and camp leader captains are there to support, guide and help campers get the most out of their experience. 

Camp Leader Responsibilities

  • Guide campers through a four-day program 

  • Help coaches and athletes teach the basics of 16 sports

  • Demonstrate the value of life skills like teamwork, confidence and overcoming adversity

  • Network with sport instructors and volunteers in the community

  • Develop leadership skills through first-hand experience  

Who can be a Camp Leader?

14-22 Year Olds (High School & College Students)

Who can be a Camp Leader Captain?

18-22 Year Olds. Camp leader captains are eligible for a $350/week stipend. 

Camp Leader Applications Are Now Open. Camp leaders and camp leader captains will receive a daily lunch and camp t-shirt. All camp leaders and camp leader captains are required to complete an application. 


Want to give back to the community and pay it forward? Register to be a Community Youth Camp Volunteer! Volunteer shifts are open to ages 14+. Because Community Youth Camp is a high energy environment, be prepared to be active and participate in sport lessons. All volunteers must complete a background check and shifts are contingent on successful completion of the background check.
