We believe that leadership skills are refined through life changing experiences. Our core mission at Mt. Gilead is to send out mature Christian women, and we take that mission seriously in every aspect of our programs.
Strategically positioned between our CILT 1 and CILT 2 years at summer camp is our annual winter LDT (Leadership Development Trip). We know that serving those less fortunate than ourselves is not only the lifestyle modeled by Christ, but crucial in a young person’s developing walk with the Lord.
At Mt. Gilead Camp we expose students to global needs and opportunities while challenging them to live as Christ has called them at home and abroad. Campers return from our International LDTs with a bigger appreciation for what they have, and a better understanding for how they can be used by God. In a time of life when campers are preparing to leave for College, that experience and knowledge is life changing. An LDT is a week without texting on cell phones, watching tv or posting to social media; it’s a time of reflection and growth.
This year’s trip will travel to Rivas. Nicaragua in Central America. The trip will consist of a small two-day kids camp for underprivileged children, a service project day and a day of tourism around southern Nicaragua.
