Youth Leadership Programs!

If you are looking for something more this summer, check out our summer youth leadership programs!
S . E . E . K .
Dates: July 10 – 23, 2016
This new two-week program is designed to help youth who have just graduated 8th and 9th grades develop life and leadership skills.

Program components will include:
• Leadership style assessment
• Group Building
• Daily Bible Study
• Intensive Low and High Ropes experiences
• Coaching in contemporary personal and business etiquette
• Opportunity to serve our local community through service projects.
Dates: July 10 – August 21, 2016
Leaders-in-Training are experienced campers who are active in their church, love God, like working with kids, and want to work at camp in the future. The Leaders-in-Training experience equips older high school students to be leaders at camp, in their home congregations, and in their communities. They will learn all aspects of camp life, from leading activities and Bible studies to certification in first aid, CPR, and life-guarding. 




 Summer camps help children to foster social relationships without the aid of a parent.
The Social and Emotional Long-Term Benefits of Summer Camp:

        "Children spend up to 180 days in school, not counting weekend functions, school-sponsored extra-curricular activities and socializing with friends. For most kids, it’s a huge part of their world. Camp offers your child a different environment in which to grow their social skills and expand their friendship circle..."


Summer Camps Make Kids Resilient:

        "Summer camps are places where children get the experiences they need to bolster their range of coping strategies. There are the simple challenges of learning how to build a fire, going on a hike, or conquering a high ropes course. There are the much more complex challenges of getting along with a new group of peers, learning how to ask for help from others, or taking manageable amount of risks without a parent following after you..."
