Minnesota Association of Alternative Programs



This year's Fall Leadership Conference is rapidly approaching. We have a new location this year:

Lake Beauty Camp
25766 Hummingbird Trail
Long Prairie, MN 56347

This is a two-day conference for student leaders. Each program may bring up to five students. The conference will focus on developing a team of student leaders who will lead on a local level and help motivate other students to get involved in MAAP STARS.
We have added the Animoto video from last year's conference so you can get idea of just how wonderful the confernece was!

A new slate of student officers is elected each year at the conference. Officers serve as MAAP representatives within their schools and assist in planning and implementing MAAP activities for the year. Each school may choose to run one candidate for this leadership team.



In 2017 the MAAP STARS Leadership Conference will be held October 25th and 26th at Lake Beauty Camp out of Long Prairie, MN.

Here is the registration for the 2017 Conference, along with a release form for the horseback riding activity
