Some teenagers can join Camp Nageela’s “Staff in Training” program, which allows participants who have finished their junior year of high school to begin transitioning from the role of camper into that of staff member. Participants in the Staff in Training program learn from senior camp staff while working and joining in on some of the regular teen program’s activities. After they finish their summer experience, the Staff in Training campers receive a stipend in recognition of their work.
Camp Nageela also offers teens an active year-round community. Teens who attend the camp often stay in touch with their new friends, visiting them during breaks from school and joining them for Nageela Midwest events throughout the year. The combination of attending the camp and joining a year-round community can make being going to Camp Nageela a life-changing experience for teens.
