Camp Excel is looking for teen mentors between the ages of 14-17 and who are looking to build their resume by working with youth. They typically possess very strong leadership skills and can be considered very responsible. Although the mentors are not paid, we essentially trust them as we would our staff. We give them many tasks and responsibilities. As a reward to our mentors we take them on special field trips. We plan to tour a few colleges, have a team building field trip, and go to Kings Dominion.
