Leaders in Training (LIT)

COST $340

Our LIT program is a week long intensive focused on training high school students to be Biblical leaders in their communities, schools, and churches by using their specific strengths and gifts. Through team-building challenges, serving in various areas of camp, training sessions, and personal reflective time with God, our LIT students will have the opportunity to begin the journey of being the leader God has designed them to be.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Who can be involved in LIT?

Any high school student entering 10th, 11th, or 12th grade in the fall.

What are the benefits of this program?

This is an excellent program to put on a resume or application for a high school leadership program, future job at camp, a college program, or elsewhere. This program will help you discover your gifts and strengths, as well as identify areas where you can grow. Plus, you will get hands-on experience serving and putting some of the things you learn about into action! Oh, and you'll also get a super-awesome t-shirt that only LDP students can have.

Why the price difference from a week of camp?

LIT is an intensive program. The students will be serving all over camp and getting hands-on experience of the different areas of camp ministry. These students will not only be poured into, they will be pouring into the camp program as well.

Will I still be able to participate in camp games and activities?

The Leadership Development Program is generally on a completely separate schedule from the rest of camp. We strive to allow LDP students to enjoy camp through some games, free time, adventure activities, and worship. A few of these will be done with the rest of camp, but most will be done solely within the LDP group. You will be doing games and activities only LDP students get to do!

I have already done LIT, can I come again?

Yes! You are welcome to participate as many times as you want.

What times do I drop off or pick up my LIT camper?

Check-in for LDP students is at 2:30pm on Sunday (ALL LIT SESSIONS) at the Welcome Center (the first building on your left as you come into camp).

Pick-up is at 4:00pm on Friday (ALL LIT SESSIONS), like regular camp. All the same policies about check-in and pick up for campers apply to LIT as well.

Do I have to apply to be a part of LIT?

Nope! Just register for the session you want to attend and fill out the LIT Personal Information form.

Can I use this as community service hours or other leadership prerequisites for leadership programs at school?

Absolutely! We are more than happy to assist you in growing as a leader in your school.
