Youth Council

The Camp Goodtimes Youth Council is a program offered to camp youth who are 15 to 20 years old. Meeting once a month from October to June, the Youth Council volunteers at local charities, works to give back to the camp community and helps brainstorm ideas for how to improve youth-centered summer camp programming. Youth council gives members a chance to stay connected to their camp peers throughout the year and develop real-world skills.
