Counselor in Training Camps

In addition to SOA sponsored camps, Camp Wonder at the Howell Nature Center offers additional specialized Overnight Leadership and Excursion Camp experiences for teenage campers, both onsite and off. Whether heading out on an excursion or learning the skills to become a counselor, teens will get in-depth experiences, have BLAST with their peers, and grow as leaders. Please note that the SOA Scholarship Program does not apply for the Counselor In Training and Excursion Camp programs.
