Youth Camp: Sharing The Aspen Experience With Your Children

The Youth Camp at the Resnick Aspen Action Forum offers the next generation’s leaders (intended for ages 12-18) an opportunity to share in the Fellowship experience. This experience includes readings-based seminar sessions facilitated by the Aspen Global Leadership Network’s Moderator Corps (and select guest moderators), a collaborative group project for campers to design solutions to overcome some of our world’s most pressing issues, and the chance for campers to present their solutions to Fellows on-stage at the closing lunch.

To stimulate the body as well as the mind, the Youth Camp attendees will also get the opportunity to hike some of Aspen's trails, including Maroon Bells, Aspen Mountain, and Hunter Creek.

Fellows who have brought their children to the Youth Camp have noted its positive impact (as shown in the video adove). Youth Camp attendees are able to grow more confident in their own leadership as they collaborate, build comraderie, and engage in deep conversation. They tackle some of the same readings that Fellows do, providing the opportunity for Fellows and their children to discuss vital issues together. You can learn more about the Youth Camp's impact on its attendees by reading Sy Dragon's personal account of her experience at last year's Action Forum.
