Youth Leadership Retreat - 2023

The Passaic County Parks & Recreation department in collaboration with the Passaic County Youth Services Commission has developed an overnight Youth Leadership Retreat that aims to enrich the lives of Passaic County youth. This retreat is open to all students enrolled in a Passaic County high school.
This retreat is hosted every summer at Camp Hope in West Milford, NJ where engaging and dynamic leaders will train our students on a variety of topics aimed at increasing their leadership abilities, self-confidence, and decision-making skills. The students will stay in air conditioned cabins with beds and hot water and be fed three meals from our dining hall staff (and dessert around the fire pit at the end of each night!) 
We have developed a curriculum that touches on the following topics:

  • Leadership Development

  • School/Life Resiliency

  • Building your professional and personal support networks

  • Future Success Decision Making 

  • Transformational Mentorship

  • Confidence Building

  • Emotional Intelligence

  • Learning & Appreciating Differences

  • Becoming an Upstander

Dates: July 5th through July 8th, 2023
Location: Camp Hope - 1792 Union Valley Rd. West Milford, NJ
