Teen leaders play a critical role in supporting educational experiences that develop life skills and character traits. They serve as positive role models and provide invaluable assistance to youth and adults in planning, implementing, and evaluating educational experiences. The camp counselor role is an important role in the 4-H program. A good teen leader or counselor is an asset of the 4-H Youth Development program. An untrained or unprepared teen leader or counselor can be more of a barrier than an asset. This program is designed to help with the leadership development of teens to serve in the role of camp counselors.
