Leadership Training

Raising leaders to impact the city with the love of Christ has been a goal of Camp Deerpark since its inception. The intense community experience and trained staff guidance make camp, by far, one of the best places to learn skills of leadership. Young adults grow in their participation in community life, peace-making, instructional skills, and personal responsibility.


Various programs with this emphasis occur throughout each year including LEAD, Summer Crew, Teen Camp, and volunteer work projects. Donations to further these efforts will help support the attendance of camper and program leadership expenses.

If growing leaders to build a more peaceful world brings you joy please mark “Leadership” in the use for line on the donation form.

“In the prayer walk I could really relate to the grief and wanting to bring God to the streets for the senseless violence affecting our youth community.  It hit home because I also feel the need to do something about it, even if it’s walking and praying for the people.”
