Outdoor Experiences for Youth


Welcome to the CTS Blog

Welcome to your blog.  This is a space where you can learn about upcoming events, connect with the CTS leadership council, and share your ideas about what CTS means to you.  There’s a place for you to add your comments about our programs, and a calendar of upcoming events.  Peer leaders from each of our camps will be able to post here and share what’s important to them.  Interested in contributing?  Speak to a peer leader, your youth leadership council, or simply email your thoughts to

This is your space.  It should become what you want it to be.  But here are a few ideas about topics you might write about, just to get you started:

Your CTS story.  Everyone has a unique CTS experience.  Share yours.  Comment on the experience of others.
Your community.  Share your ideas about how to make a positive change.  Is there an event you think CTS youth should know about?  a great way to get together and have fun while doing something good?  Together, you and your CTS peers can make a difference.
Your comments.  CTS is your program.  Make it what you want it to be. Share with other CTS youth your ideas about what is great, and how you can work together to make it better.

Write your thoughts or give us a  link to a video you’ve posted to YouTube.  This is YOUR space.  We know you will make it into something special
