Youth Mentor Program (Teens aged 14+)
Teens are invited to join Camp Bohemia as junior mentors. Junior mentors apprentice with our field specialists, assist with younger children, and have time to adventure and explore in nature.
Our hands-on camp curriculum, taught by engaging field specialists, cultivates confidence, a sense of belonging, a connection with the land, a stewardship ethic, and nature knowledge.
Staff Safety Training
Our staff of CPR and first aid-certified, college-educated, skilled, and trained field specialists have years of experience working with youth in outdoor settings. Staff to camper ratio is generally one staff to 10 campers. Skilled and trained volunteers assist throughout the day, making the adult to camper ratio closer to 1 adult to 5 campers. All staff and volunteers have been fingerprinted.
