That's a LOT of camp!

Since few / no kids would do the entire 6-weeks, what would be the length of the curriculum?

The mayor's program allows businesses and organizations to hire kids for 20 hrs/week for 6-7 weeks. They would have to do the entire program. Part of the program would be to work with younger kids at summer camps, teaching orienteering.

Oh, ok
I was thinking about the campers, though, not the counselors

The summer camps would not be only orienteering - these would be pre-existing summer camps we would work with.

So, adding orienteering as an activity to local summer day camps?

Yes. I have already done that in the past. I worked for two years with the COMPASS program, an academic enrichment camp, sprinkling in orienteering. That was nice because they have more freedom and money for travel than the schools. And last summer I also provided an orienteering class once a week for a Community Schools summer program.
