Leadership Camp


What is Leadership Camp? Think Outward Bound meets nightly TED Talks. Over the past 11 summers, Leadership camp has turned into a program that boys and parents describe as "life changing."

McCallie's Leadership Camp offers rising 8th and 9th grade boys an opportunity to live on the McCallie campus and be part of a select group of talented, intellectually curious peers who want to make the most of their abilities and learn to use those abilities to influence others in a positive way. You will share in experiences designed to stretch your mind, open your heart, and engage your imagination about what the future may hold. You will return home better suited to make a difference in your own community

Past campers and alumni who attended leadership camp have come to know it as CLC (Character, Leadership, and Community).
