Leadership Live! provides leadership training for teens, ages sixteen to eighteen, who wish to increase their leadership potential and/or wish to serve
on the Ironwood volunteer summer team. This program is designed for youth who are interested in further Christian growth and a summer of service-oriented
Benefits to the Camper:
learning and practicing the five components of leadership—discipline, wisdom, vision, humility, and initiative;
studying and practicing counseling skills—each camper receives the same counseling tools and training that our summer counselors receive (the Ironwood Staff
Manual and the Biblical Counselor’s All-purpsoe Tool);
developing teamwork skills;
establishing personal, biblical convictions;
journaling—a valuable tool to help campers express what they are thinking and help them come to a point of decision in various areas of life;
serving as prayer partner for a counselor—this gives a specific group of campers to get to know and pray for specifically;
having their own counselor for the duration of their time at camp, which allows for a relationship that grows beyond the usual one-week span of summer camp.
Benefits to the Church:
leadership training takes leaders in your youth group and stretches them by putting them with a group of other leaders;
provides college-aged peers that give campers godly examples—the friendships made in the summer can help immensely as older teens prepare for life choices.
