Wave Week

Posted by on June 03, 2013

What is Wave Week?
WAVE WEEK (July 14-19, 2013) is one of the premier service-leadership training grounds in the U.S. Through our intensive 6-day program of leadership development, community service, team building activities, and summer fun you will learn how to plan and execute better service projects while building stronger teams. Wave Week offers both overnight and commuter camp options.

Will we do community service at Wave Week?
Volunteering is a very important aspect of a participant’s experience at Wave Week. This year at Wave Week we are partnering with other local organizations to focus our service efforts and resources towards the needs of those living it West Philadelphia. Through our camp’s service, awareness efforts, and take home projects, we will work to help the people of this neighborhood and the groups that work with them. Wave Week affects the lives of tens of thousands of people every year through the generosity and service of its participants. We hope that you will join us and learn how to expand your own Big Ripple Effect and help even more people who need a hand.

Who can participate?
All teens who have completed 7th grade through 11th grade are welcome at Wave Week. Campers are divided into two tracks based upon their age. Each track meets separately for most activities and for dorm assignments. Meals and large group activities incorporate both tracks.
Track 1: 7th-9th graders Track 2: 10th-11th graders
