Registration Packet

Head Camper Program

The Head Camper Program has been developed to allow teens ages 13-15 the ability to gain valuable leadership skills through involvement in the West Lafayette Parks & Recreation Summer Camp program.  Participants will obtain work experience in a day camp setting, while still being allowed to participate in camp activities, as well as additional activities unavailable to campers.  The program will introduce participants to the process of applying and interviewing for a job, and if chosen, the participant will have a leg up on the competition when it comes to future job experiences.


A.  All eligible participants will be at least 13 years of age on the first day of camp, and not older than 15.

B.  Candidates must be willing to undergo an interview process, similar to the one that all Summer Camp staff goes through.

C.  Candidates must possess a high degree of maturity, responsibility, enthusiasm, and reliability.

D. Candidates must be willing to lead by example and act as a role model for the younger campers.

Dates:  June 1-August 6 (no camp on May 31 or July 5)

Weekly Fee:  $60/week for Wellness Center members and $75/week for non-members

Time:  9 am-4 pm

Location:  West Lafayette Wellness Center
