Camp Nebagamon Scholarship Fund Supports TLP

Wyman recently received a generous donation from the Camp Nebagamon Scholarship Fund to support young people in Wyman’s Teen Leadership Program (TLP).

The Camp Nebagamon Scholarship Fund aims to transform the lives of children from disadvantaged circumstances, by helping them attend not-for-profit camps where they learn to cope with and potentially overcome challenges such as poverty and violence in their home communities.

Wyman’s Teen Leadership Program (TLP) engages teens from economically disadvantaged circumstances year-round for seven years beginning in eighth grade. The program is guided by a progressive leadership theme, and teens gain the experiences, skills and values needed to prepare to act as contributing students, family members, employees and citizens.

The first three years in the program, participants take part in intensive summer experiences on Wyman’s campus. Adventure challenge programming is designed to develop life and leadership skills, including high & low ropes course team experiences, river trips, backpacking, outdoor skills education/utilization, and climbing wall experiences. A variety of healthy recreational opportunities such as archery, swimming, fishing, arts and crafts, hiking, traditional games, etc., are used throughout the Teen Leadership Program to build relationships, build skills, and promote healthy leisure time choices.
