Staffing Camp

Due to COVID-19, the National Teen Leadership Program will not be hosting a 2021 in-person leadership camp.

For 27 years in a row, the National Teen Leadership Program has held at least one camp every summer. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the President of California State University, Sacramento has officially announced that the University will not be hosting in-person summer events. The safety of our teens, volunteer staff, and our community is of upmost importance. As leaders in creating positive environments that empower, inspire and educate all teens, we want to lead by example and keep our community safe. We hope to see everyone back in Sacramento in summer 2022!


  1. You must have graduated from high school and completed one year of college or have one year of work experience.
  2. The next most important thing is having the desire to GIVE BACK the motivation, inspiration, and enthusiasm you got from the program as an attendee.

If we can get just one student per camp to step beyond their barriers and to come out believing they are a leader, it is all worth it. I am so happy about what we have done so far. We can do it because NTLP has helped us become leaders. I know some of us, especially me, would not think of ourselves as leaders unless we came to this camp. I do not want this program to ever end. I want to know that OUR children will be able to attend NTLP and come back with a new understanding of leadership, life, and themselves… Scott Higa (alumnus, 1998).
