Servanthood Leadership Program (SLP)

As a result of COVID-19 we have re-envisioned our 2020 program offerings. We are very excited to expand SLP programming into the Fall and Winter months which has been a goal of ours for several years. We are embracing this as a blessing in disguise for fully realizing the potential of year-round SLP opportunities and we hope you will be excited to join us on the journey!

The Servanthood Leadership program is an opportunity for youth to gain additional camp knowledge and valuable leadership experience. It focuses on faith building sessions and opportunities to serve peers, children, and the community. 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 good team member and positive role model.

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.

SLP Fall/Winter will include 3 mandatory components:
i) Online learning sessions          ii) Fall Retreat weekend.        iii)Winter Retreat weekend

And one optional component:
i) Volunteer Placement at Holiday Camp
