The Next Step

Junior Leaders (Ages 14-15)

Attention Silver Lakers!

Are you looking to make the transition from a camper and take your next step as a camp leader? Our Junior Leadership Program is a great way for those born in 2002/2003 to earn volunteer hours, meet new friends, improve their leadership skills, and learn more about God!

Junior Leaders, also referred to as Progies, will start off their summer with a training weekend, which allows them to get to know one another and prepare with an introduction to the leadership skills that will be used throughout the summer. As they assist our permanent staff in the cabins, during group times, and afternoon gigs for our 3 youngest camps, Junior Leaders will have the chance to learn more about what it means to be a servant leader at camp. Not only will they work together to design and lead various camp-wide programming events during these weeks (such as morning game and talent show), but they will also have the opportunity to learn more about key components of leadership in a spiritual context. During the final component of the program, Junior Leaders will have a week of intentional community and powerful teaching as they experience Youth Camp together. From start to finish, this program promises to not only be one of personal development and growth, but also of adventure and excitement! Please see the dates and price below:
