YLS is held at SpringHill Camp in Evart, Michigan (just 12 miles south of Cadillac). The classroom portions take place in a gathering space set up for out-of-your-seat team learning and activities. But this isn’t like school! SpringHill Camp is built on 515 acres of northern Michigan forests and rolling hills, and it’s here that you’ll test your skill at utility pole climbing, a high-ropes adventure, and other team-building fun. Plus, you can use your free-time to enjoy the indoor pool, challenge your new friends to a pick-up round of basketball or volleyball in the gym, or just hang out in the game room.

We stay in dormitory-style rooms with large, shared bathrooms (don’t worry mom, it’s guys in one building, ladies in another!). These shared accommodations are ideal for getting to know the other YLS participants from throughout Michigan. Meals are all-you-can-eat, ¬†buffet-style, shared in a large dining hall.
