TLC is comprised of 15 teen leaders, ages 14 to 17, who will actively represent the KSS Summer Camp community and develop their leadership skills through various activities during the year.

Members will participate in three retreats that will strengthen their understanding of camp so that they can grow into stronger leaders and future counselors, give them a CPR and First Aid certification, and more.
