Discover your personal leadership style and put it into action in Tanadoona Teen Outdoor Leadership. Guided by our camp staff, teens meet monthly to participate in leadership development and team-building activities. This is a great learning and team-building opportunity for campers who are thinking about joining our summer Leadership Development Program.


Monthly Meetings:
January – May, 3rd Tuesday of month, 6-8pm

We’ll come together once a month to focus on leadership development, outdoor skills, and a project to benefit camp and/or our larger community. Meal not provided, please eat before arriving.

Spring Leadership Getaway to Camp Bluewater:

Retreat to Camp Bluewater for the weekend! Here you’ll develop your leadership skills, learn more about Tanadoona’s leadership programs, build camaraderie with other teen leaders, and participate in a nature-based service project at Camp Bluewater, our destination camp near Grand Rapids, MN. Activities include team-building, leadership training, field games, hiking, relaxing by the fire, and service projects such as creating a new archery range.
