Every two years our staff and CILTs travel to Nicaragua on a service project. Our International Leadership Development Trip (LDT) is strategically positioned between our CILT years 1 and 2. On Leadership Trips, students are exposed to global needs and opportunities, while challenging them to live as Christ has called them, both at home and abroad. Campers return from our International LDTs with a greater appreciation for what they have and a better understanding of how they can be used by God.
In the time of life when campers are preparing to leave for college and careers, this type of experience and insight can be life-changing. An LDT is a time of unplugged service, reflection, and growth, without the typical distractions at home.
We partner with missionaries and non-profit organizations overseas in order to provide a Christ-centered camping experience for underprivileged girls in their own country. Our summer camp leadership staff facilitate a biblically-based discipleship program for CILTs and will travel with our CILTs on the service trips, mentoring and partnering with them the entire way. CILTs take a leadership role over the trip’s design and implementation.
