JWLA Leadership Camp

August 9, 2019 - August 11, 2019

Wynners from grades 5 through 12 travel together to the YMCA Camp Duncan in Ingleside, IL where they spend three days embodying the mission of the JWF: Leadership, Service and Sportsmanship. Connect with other Wynners, participate in exciting activities, and brainstorm ideas for another great year for the JWLA.


For our new Wynners as well as Wynners we have not seen recently, we hope you will give serious consideration to attending this exciting weekend as it offers a wonderful opportunity for all Wynners from soon-to-be 5th through 12th grade to get to know each other. We travel by coach bus to Camp Duncan, a YMCA camp, in Ingleside, Illinois. It is a beautiful facility with a pool, lake, high ropes course, boats, campfires, cabins, mess halls, etc.  In between having lots of fun, we find time to plan for the Leadership Academy’s upcoming year, embracing many ideas that come from the Wynners themselves. High School Wynners will help provide leadership for our meetings and in the cabins. While the schedule will be structured with team building, leadership training, and planning time, there will also be free time for the Wynners to hang out and get to know one another better.

Coming to Camp Duncan is a great way to connect with your fellow Wynners, brainstorm ideas for future projects and events, and kick-off another great year for the JWLA. Whether or not you have been an active Wynner, Camp Duncan is the perfect opportunity to jump aboard. We hope you will join us this year!


The total cost for the weekend at Camp Duncan is $225 per camper.  This cost includes: round trip transportation by coach bus; supervision and facilitation of all activities by JWLA staff, volunteers, and Camp Duncan staff; cabins with bunk beds for two nights; use of all campground facilities; meals and snacks throughout the weekend.

Because it is very important to us that anyone who wants to attend camp can do so regardless of the ability to pay, we are offering a sliding scale of fees.  If you are able to do so, we invite you to pay the full registration amount. If not, we can provide partial and full scholarships for those participants that need it.


The registration/payment link is found HERE.  You can pay by either credit card or check. Please register by July 12, 2019.

For more detailed information about the weekend, please see the camp checklist.

In addition, if you are interested in being a chaperone for Leadership Camp, please send me a separate email.

If you need help with the registration, have any questions or concerns, or need to make a request for a camp scholarship, please do not hesitate to contact sue@wynners.org or carrie@wynners.org.
