Teen Vision

The Teen Vision (TV) Program at Camp Guggenheim is a two-week program designed to provide enthusiastic teens with an opportunity to put their Faith into action while developing leadership and career skills in an outdoor ministry setting.  The Teen Vision Program is an asset to any young person looking to advance their leadership, communication, and mentorship skills.  The Teen Vision Program is an excellent launching block to a career in camp ministry, youth ministry, childhood education, leadership roles and more!  Being a Teen Visioner also looks great on your college applications and job resumes.      

To participate in the Teen Vision Program, a candidate must apply for a spot on the Teen Vision team.

Teen Vision Application

How Does It Work: 

Teen Visioners must be at least 16 years of age by camp attendance. 
Teen Visioners should be a practicing Catholic Christian.    
All Teen Visioners will attend a training session at camp. During this time, senior staff members will introduce Teen Visioner’s to the current camp program, operations, and required emergency procedures. (See below for more information) 
Once training is completed, Teen Visioners will return the following session to work within the camp community. 
The fee for the Teen Vision (TV) Program is: $425.00       


Daily assignments are designed for TVs to set up and break down equipment for daily camp activities in a collaborative team environment before and after activities take place. In addition, during most of the camp day, TVs are assigned to Camper groups (under Senior Staff supervision) or Activity areas and are focused primarily on interacting with Campers while developing positive relationships and accepting mentorship from older, more experienced Staff.
