A main highlight for Camp L.E.A.D. and its participants is the program's special guest speaker. Camp L.E.A.D. features a recognizable leader who serves as the keynote of the program. This distinguished individual, along with additional camp personnel and university faculty, help provide engaging leadership curriculum and experiences for participating students and selected high school guidance counselors. Participants also get to hear about the speaker's journey to success and interact with the notable individual on a personal level.
