Timothy Leadership Development Program
Are you going into grade 10 or 11? The Timothy program is designed specifically for those committed to growing in their relationship with Jesus Christ. Our Timothy Program is designed to prepare you for leadership at camp (and after!).
It’s based on 1 Timothy 4:12 “don’t let anyone put you down because you’re young. Teach believers with your life: by word, by demeanor, by love, by faith, by integrity.”
This program is about developing in discipleship, servant leadership, teaching and practical skills. It can be life transforming, and the place where you come to understand in a real and personal way what it means to be a follower of Jesus Christ each and every day. Our Timothy’s make life-long friends who will continue to encourage you and stretch you in your faith long after camp is over. The Timothy program is divided into two parts over two years, and promises to be a life changing experience!
