The Camp Dodge Teen Volunteer Trail Program is the perfect leadership development program. Many of our staff Crew Leaders are former teenaged volunteers before coming to work and lead at Camp Dodge. They develop their crew and trail work skills as volunteers and then hone those same skills as leaders in the field. This years class of Teen Trail Crew Leaders is an impressive one, with ample background in volunteering, leading, and trail work...so check out who'll be leading some awesome Trail Crew this summer out of Camp Dodge!!

I grew up on Cape Cod and visited Maine almost every summer. I graduated from
Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts with a BA in Music with a minor in Arts
