Camp Information & Instructions

The American Red Cross of Utah will be holding its 11th annual High School Leadership Development Camp (LDC) but this year it will be an ONLINE camp only. The camp dates and times are: June 21-25, 2021 from 10am-3pm each day. This camp is for Utah, Nevada and South Western Wyoming students who are currently in 9th, 10th and 11th grades for the school year 2020-2021. LDC is designed for both students who already have strong leadership skills and for those who have no leadership experience yet. The camp is also designed for students who feel they are not the type of person for a leadership role but would like to learn how they, with their own set of values and characteristics, can help in their schools, churches and communities.

Filling out this application does not guarantee you a spot at camp. We realize that you have lots of questions, so we do a Zoom chat with all youth and their parents who apply for camp. This is not a job interview, but we do want to make sure that both the delegate (youth who attend camp) and their parents understand the camp and also agree to all that we require while in attendance. We also want to make sure parents and youth have all their questions answered. During our Zoom chat you will be quizzed on the information in our camp video (found on our website) as well as the rules and information here. 

Because our camp is non-profit, the cost of camp is only $50. Payment is due during the video chat. Unless there is a very good reason. Please discuss this with the staff member.

Camp Rules

  • You must give your full attention to camp. Surfing the internet or doing other things during camp is not allowed. You won’t grow if you aren’t present and it will honestly be a waste of your time and ours.
  • You must commit to show up on time each day, stay to the end of each day and come back every day of camp. If you do this we can promise you the results we spoke of in the video. If you get sick or have to leave for some reason please message Heather or have your parents message her right away.
  • If you miss part of camp and don't have approval from the director, you may be asked to leave the camp.
  • Because you will be in groups where people are sharing personal information and because we want you to feel free to share without judgment from those who may hear your conversation, we need you to be in a private space with the door closed and no one else in the room. If you can’t do this, we hope you marked in the above section that you couldn’t and we will try to help you figure out a way.
  • What is said by others in Rap group by others (their personal stories), stays in Rap group. We don't keep the curriculum a secret, but you must not share others personal stories without their permission. 
  • You must agree to keep your screen on the whole time.
  • Get the snacks and drinks you need and have them near you so you don't have to leave. 
  • There is no dress code but please be appropriate and don't wear things that are generally offensive.
  • We strive to have a diverse group of delegates. We expect all delegates to be respectful of all others at camp, no matter what your personal beliefs are.
  • As this is a leadership camp, the nature of your language, conversations, and actions should be civil and not make others uncomfortable.
  • You must be able to take feedback as it is intended... to push you to grow.
  • For planning purposes, we can only issue a refund to you until May 15th, if you decide to withdraw from attending camp. After that our fee is non-refundable.
