Leader In Training Program (LIT)

Over the years, one of the top priorities of the Kedleston leadership team has been to train up young men and women who have a desire to grow in their walk with Jesus and provide opportunities to develop their skills as young leaders.  While KGC has always informally achieved this, as our campers have often chosen to come back to be a part of KGC as staff,  the LEADER IN TRAINING PROGRAM, which was developed 6 years ago, does this in a more formal manner.  We hire LIT Directors whose purpose is to mentor, disciple and help train teens through one-on-one interaction, group sessions, personal devotional time and practical acts of service.  

The program runs along side other camps.   The Jr. LIT program, which is 1 week long and is geared for those aged 13-14, typically runs during the week of Sr. Teen Camp.  The Sr. LIT program, for those aged 15-16, is 2-3 weeks and may run during  the weeks of Jr. Teen, Pre-Teen and Kids Camps.  The first 2 weeks focus on discipleship, team-building, servanthood and practical training with Kids Camp being the "mission" portion of the program.  LIT's would then be directly involved with co-leading cabins or assisting with skills and activities.

There are a limited number of spots for the LIT Program and participants will be chosen based on an application process which also includes references.  Where more applications are received then we have spots for, age and readiness for the program will be considered.  The program is designed for teens who are serious about their walk with Jesus and desire to develop their leadership skills by way of discipleship and mentorship.  Applicants should be growing daily in their relationship with Christ, active in their church and youth group and serving in their church or community.
