The Young Leaders Program is intended to nurture and grow servants in the name of Jesus. It is designed for those who are 13 to 16 years old, and would like to develop leadership skills for future service in ministry. In addition to job training, the group of young adults selected for this opportunity will have intense leadership and Biblical training, team building experiences, and various activities on and off the camp grounds.
The first week of the two-week session includes camp activities, challenging teambuilding experiences, and a heavy emphasis on Spiritual Training. The second week allows the participants to serve in the camp setting, and be considered as Camp Staff in the future. Young Leaders will also participate in a service project on camp grounds, like planting trees or building benches needed around camp.
Many have asked how this is different from Youth Camp—it is very different! While there is a lot of fun during this program, there are also intense training sessions so the Leaders will be ready to join the staff team when they are old enough. We encourage campers to participate in both Youth Camps and the Young Leaders Program.
