It’s been a busy end to 2017 for youth participants in Camp du Nord’s Leaders Club. The peer led teen program has become a can’t miss monthly event for du Nord teens across the metro area. Each monthly gathering has brought 40+ teens to the Midway YMCA where teens congregate to talk about focused topics, from dealing with stress to communication styles. After a recent meeting, a mother of a participant reported that her daughter ‘never felt more serene’. That’s what a little yoga and breathing will do for ya!
In addition to meetings, Leaders Club participants attend monthly volunteer/service events. In November, teens helped at Empty Bowls in Powderhorn Park, where they cleaned out used ceramic bowls for attendees. In December, participants packed dozens of meals at Feed My Starving Children in Eagan.
We are very proud of our young leaders as they continue to learn, give, and grow!
