Parents & kids

Issue Concerning Adolescents of Nevada (I.C.A.N.) will host its 2011 Leadership Camp from June 20-26 at Camp Lee Canyon.

Applications for the camp are now available for children and teens ages 11 through 17 and will be accepted through May 1.

Camp Lee Canyon is located 45 miles northwest of the Las Vegas Valley in the Toiyabe National Forest. The event will consist of speakers, workshops and curriculum to educate and empower young adults to be self-reliant, inspirational peer and community role models.

Through the leadership training experienced at camp, participants learn how to make smart decisions, maintain their stress levels and educate others on drug prevention. Of last year's participants, all claimed to have found at least one friend who will help them stay drug-free.

The cost is $250 per child and includes food, lodging, workshops, speakers, a T-shirt, materials and activities, including a dance, campfires and talent show. Transportation to and from camp will be available from a park-and-ride location to be announced as the date approaches.

For information on the organization's payment plan, contact Jamie Ross at Jamie@icanlv.org or call 702-451-ICAN (4226). Camp and financial aid applications, as well as additional information, is available online at www.icanlv.org
