Training Future Leaders

SHEP is a servant leadership program offered during Intermediate Camp. The purpose: to train and equip future leaders for youth camp ministry.


I really wanted to work in camp, but I wasn’t old enough, and I didn’t have that much experience. I didn’t think it was a good idea for me to just hop in like, "let’s go!"  I think SHEP has really taught me how to be a leader, how to be with the kids, and how to be a good staff member, so when I am able to work in camp, I already know all these things, and I can just pull it out from SHEP and be like, "I got this."


"SHEP has really taught me how to be a leader"

SHEP helps give you that leadership you need when you’re ready to take that next step to be a cabin leader or CIT, or even give you skills to be a director! It’s a great experience. You get to meet all kinds of new people, and even though you do have to put in work, you have a blast.


"You have a blast."
