Leadership Camps

Summers at Fountain Valley School are filled with camps, conferences and other programs run both by outside organizations and FVS faculty.

FVS's 1,100-acre main campus, located at the base of Pikes Peak in southeast Colorado Springs, is the primary location for all camps, and some groups also utilize the School's 40-acre Mountain Campus near Buena Vista, Colo., for special retreats. Overnight or day, all groups who use the FVS campus benefit from some of the most impressive residential, academic, athletic and recreational facilities in the nation.

Navigating one’s way through adolescence has never been easy, and never harder than it is today. As concerns grow about the emotional and physical well-being of adolescents, study after study shows the central importance of a relationship with a caring adult to a young person's development. For more than 50 years, teachers from independent schools across the United States and beyond have gathered for intensive, week-long residential workshops led by experienced mental health and counseling professionals familiar with the independent school world to learn how to listen in a new way.
