High School Leaders

Stone Canyon is proud to offer 10th, 11th, and 12th-grade students in DCSD an opportunity to volunteer with Colorado's finest outdoor education program and assist in providing elementary school students a rewarding experience. High School Leads that are selected will attend a 3-day, 2-night session.

This is a highly competitive volunteer placement and we expect high school leads to be fully invested with student interactions, group management, and performing as a positive role model. As a High School Lead, you can expect high-quality training, feedback from our experienced staff, and the chance to develop your leadership abilities.

“The most beneficial part of this experience for me was meeting people and coming out of my “shell”. Last year I was very quiet, didn’t make many friends, and had trouble participating in fun activities. This year, I stepped out and made a change to all of that.”
