Camp Kieve FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Leadership School?

The Leadership School is a residential, 4-day & 3-night program designed to help young people learn how to make responsible decisions free from peer pressure.  For over 80 years, Kieve’s motto has been “Everyone Deserves To Be Treated With Kindness And Respect.”  The mission of The Leadership School is to empower young people and the adults who affect them to contribute positively to society by providing a wide range of experiential educational opportunities.

What does a typical day look like?

Your child's day begins at 7:00 a.m. and winds up around 9:00 p.m. Check out this slide show for a more detailed explanation of the a day at The Leadership School.

How much does it cost to send my child to The Leadership School at Camp Kieve?

The Leadership School tries very hard to keep the cost of their programs affordable. To that end, Kieve raises money from alumni and friends to help keep the costs for students as low as possible. The participants pay the remaining cost of each program, which is $200.  Payment plans can be made and some scholarships are available based on family need. Please contact the Memorial Middle School Main Office for more information. 

My child is very worried about being away from home. Is there any advice to help my child feel better?

Many of our students will be away from  home for the first time during their stay at The Leadership School. We have found that a visit to the camp prior to the stay allows the worried child to better imagine what his/her experience will be like. Parents can contact the staff at The Leadership School to arrange for a visit. Additional information and pictures are available on The Leadership School website.

I have other questions about Kieve. Who can I contact?

The staff at The Leadership School have compiled additional FAQs on the Parent page of their website. If your question has not been answered, please contact one of our guidance counselors or a school administrator.
