Youth will be able to participate in many different activities throughout the weekend including the famous “Dancing” workshop. Youth learn valuable skills that youth can take back and utilize in their counties. The camp usually takes place in early February, from Friday night through Sunday morning at Ponderosa Camp grounds in Larkspur.

Youth participate in a number of workshops and leadership building activities, as well as compete in a number of various state wide contests that youth have prepared for throughout the year.
