The 55th annual CHSAA Student Leadership Camp is underway in Fort Collins this week, on the campus of Colorado State University.

The camp, which features more than 400 attendees, seeks to equip students and advisers with leadership skills they can take back to their schools.

The camp seeks to give its attendees skills they can use throughout the school year, and touches on topics like diversity, self-evaluation, team-building, technology and how to build leadership programs. The campers also share ideas and best practices on things like school dances, pep rallies, school spirit, and more.

This week, the CHSAA administrative staff will visit the camp and meet with the student representatives who have been elected by their peers to provide leadership across the state. These representatives will serve on a variety of CHSAA committees, and volunteer at state championship events, among other duties.

CHSAA assistant commissioner Justin Saylor is the camp's coordinator and director, and Rashaan Davis, the adviser at Eaglecrest High School, is the curriculum director.

This year's Fall Conference for student leadership will be held at Manitou Springs High School.
