Leadership Program  July 2 - 13, 2017

JULY 2 - 13   Cost: $125

IF YOU ARE 13-14 YEARS OF AGE...

   

A leader in training program (HIT Team) is offered at camp for you.  It is a 2-week program designed to challenge and facilitate the personal development of young people who want to learn about Christ-like leadership, and to train them to serve as leaders at camp, in their homes, schools, churches and community.

 

We strongly encourage you to participate in and complete our LIT program prior to volunteering. 

 

The first week of the program is an intensive time of learning and development.  HITs will focus on knowing themselves, knowing others, and knowing God.  You will spend a minimum of 3 hours each day in training and will also gain practical experience.  

 

OVERNIGHT TRIP:  Mid-week there is a team-building overnight trip.  In the past we have paddled the Saugeen and camped at the Saugeen Bluffs, we have gone spelunking, and have done a high ropes program in Tobermory.  Plans for this year's trip have not been decided - keep checking back!

  

The second week* of the program you will be placed in a specific area of ministry to serve in at camp. 

  

At the end of the program you will be given an evaluation with feedback from their leaders to help you identify your strengths and areas for growth.

 

Space is limited to 15. Cost is $125 (which covers the t-shirt, training materials, lunches, overnight trip, etc.)
