Gesher Teen Camp
Rising Grades 6th - 8th
Teen Camp consists of a 6th grade group and 7th/8th grade where both groups enjoy 2 days of “traditional” on-site activities including swimming, archery, and canteen; as well as fun activities just for teens including Improv, chocolate making, and Color War. Every Friday will be our community service day. Whether we are making sandwiches for the homeless or cleaning up in the community garden, Friday is our day to help the community. The other 2 days will be spent off-site traveling to all sorts of exciting places, such as the US National White Water Center, Carowinds, or Sports Connection.
All camps are Monday-Friday; 9am-4pm (with some exceptions on out-of-camp days & Athena's Path)

CIT & LIT Camp
CIT & LIT programs have been revamped to provide a summer experience that will give 9th and 10th grade teens, who want to work with children, a greater understanding of what it means to be a Summer Camp Counselor. Both programs will take part in leadership building activities, skills development, and fun group trips!
The CIT program will focus on the daily structure of camp and counselor schedules. Teens will be introduced to planning counselor led activities, basic First Aid training, team building exercises, circle games, and how to become an effective and successful counselor. They will also be assigned to a group in order to observe counselors in action.
The LIT program will focus on the daily ins and outs of making camp run successfully. Teens will learn to plan group activities, modify activities for various age groups, child development, guidance techniques and First Aid training.
CITs/LITs will take part in an evaluation based on their performance during the program. Evaluation will be considered when applying for employment as a Junior Counselor for Camp Mindy in future summers.
Acceptance into the CIT/LIT programs is based on an application and interview.

Athena's Path & Athena's Path 2: Leadership Camp For Girls 6th - 8th Grade
Athena’s Path camp is a fun time for girls, filled with funny games and activities, cool instructors, and lively discussions- all about middle school. The social drama of middle school can take its toll on academics, self-esteem and attitudes about school. Our games and activities teach girls the tools they need to navigate the middle school social scene and be the leaders of their own lives. Our tools give girls confidence to solve their own problems in middle school, and beyond! Our high school interns are great role models, make the activities more fun and help the girls feel comfortable. Your Athena’s Path girl discovers that being a leader doesn’t necessarily mean being class president. It means solving problems creatively, doing what she believes is right, and staying true to herself. While she plays games, tries new activities, talks confidentially, and giggles, she learns to:
- Lead with her unique style
- Evaluate and respond to criticism
- Communicate positively
- Solve problems creatively
- Take the right kind of risks
- Identify local and realistic role models
- Plug into healthy friendships
