Servanthood Leadership Program (SLP)

This summer Cave Springs Camp will once again host our Servanthood Leadership Program (SLP). The recommended age for SLP participants is 14-15 years old.  Participants must be at least 14 years old by December 31st of this year to qualify for the program.

The Servanthood Leadership program is an opportunity for youth to gain additional camp knowledge and valuable leadership experience. The intent of SLP is to develop a servant-like attitude in youth, as well as create a unique and individual understanding of what it means to be a mentor to campers through camp activity training and behind-the-scenes projects. For additional information and FAQ’s please read through our 2020 SLP Information Sheet.

Participants interested in SLP are required to submit and application package. Applications can be submitted electronically to director@cavespringscamp.on.ca, or by mail to SLP, 4410 Cave Spring Rd, Beamsville, ON, L0R 1B1. There are a limited number of spaces in the Servanthood Leadership Program. Youth are selected based on the submission of a completed application package including:

  1. Completed personal and contact information
  2. Completed reflection questions
  3. Two (2) completed reference forms

If you have any difficulties in accessing the application package please email director@cavespringscamp.on.ca

Leadership Development Program (LDC)

Cave Springs also offers leadership development opportunities for those aged 16+ years old. Cave Springs is affiliated with two other United Church camps and through these three camps, there is a program called the Leadership Development Camp. This camp is run by a separate group of individuals and runs for two weeks at the beginning of the summer. Campers spend time at all three camps (Cave Springs, Ryerson and Silver Lake) and also travel to Algonquin as well as plan and execute a worship service. More information and how to apply can be found at www.leadershipcamp.ca.
