Applying to be a "L.I.T."
"But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your servant, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve."- Matthew 20:26-28Leaders In Training at Twin Lakes have the opportunity to glorify God through service during our summer program. While being an L.I.T. is a serious commitment, it is also a challenge and rewarding experience. We hope that yo uwill put much thought and prayer into considering to apply to be a part of this ministry.
The purpose of Twin Lakes Summer Camp is to provide a fun, safe, outdoor environment where kids learn from the staff to glorify God in every area of life. Developing relationships with children is at the forefront of everything we do. We desire to minister to their spiritual, emotional, and physical needs through our words and actions.
NOT YOUR TYPICAL YOUTH CAMP
The Twin Lakes L.I.T. program is not your typical Youth Camp. Leaders In Training are not staff. They are also not campers. L.I.T.s focus on Christian growth through Christ-like service as patterned by Jesus and described by Paul in Philippians 2. The program is designed to encourage your personal growth in Christ, challenge you to be a Godly leader wherever you are, and teach and prepare you to minister to and serve others. In addition to serving campers, we seek to help these leaders continue to grow in Christ and in His word while they are at camp. L.I.T.s will build close friendships as they study, live out God's word, pray and worship together.
Please note that the L.I.T. program does involve many responsibilities while allowing for plenty of fellowship and fun. The L.I.T. program is a time to intentionally engage relationships with others, God's word, and His creation. Life is different at camp, where we either adopt certain behaviors or give them up for the sake of our purpose.
Every policy has a purpose - to honor God and to protect this community. Restrictions on technology, clothing, and time are made in light of what is good for you and for the community as a whole. These limitations will enhance your L.I.T. experience.
Leaders In Training will be prepared to minister to and serve others through Biblical teaching, Bible study and plenty of hands-on experience. L.I.T.s experience the various Twin Lakes activities - swimming, horseback riding, riflery and archery, rock climbing, canoeing, kayaking and much more. Each individual will be presented valuable leadership lessons through assisting counselors with campers in all areas of camp life. These areas inlude helping at activities, helping set-up, serve and clean up meals, as well as assisting with each night's programs and snacks.
