Camper applications for
Girls Leading Our World (GLOW) and Young Men’s Leadership Project (YMLP)
If You’re Looking for An Exceptional Leadership Opportunity
The mission of YMCA and the GLOW and YMLP Youth Development Progrаm is to empower the young people and develop the inherent potential they have by providing them with the skills and knowledge necessary to become active leaders in their communities. This is realized through experiential education that celebrates diversity, builds academic and social competencies.
GLOW and YMLP are eight-day, multi-cultural camp that promote leadership, civic engagement, and friendship. This year, YMLP camp will be July 14-21 and Camp GLOW will be July 25-August 1. We offer 152 placements for leadership and service-oriented campers who are going into their 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year of high school.
Thanks to generous philanthropic support from our corporate sponsors (see below) and individual donors, YMCA covers 90% of the operating expenses. Campers have to pay a participation fee of 2.300 MKD. Campers are also expected to arrange and purchase their own transportation to/from Krushevo.
Camper cost includes accommodation, three meals and two snacks per day, camper materials, programming costs, and group insurance during the camp. Campers are required to pay the fee after their acceptance and before attending the camp. Payment process information is provided when the camper is notified of selection.
During the month of April, we organize informational sessions all over the country! Check the up-to-date list of sessions to see when we’ll be in your town.
EXTENDED DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS MAY 10th, 2019
