Casowasco Leaders in Training NEW!

June 26 - July 22

New this year!
Consider this unique four-week experience for your older teen.  Summer camp is so important to your teen for all the right reasons, but as a parent you want more for your teen.  Casowasco’s Leader-in-Training program is a breakthrough experience for the seasoned Casowasco summer camper.  The LIT experience was created to nurture budding leadership skills in your camper.  Through the LIT experience your older camper will have the opportunity to become lifeguard, first aid and CPR certified.  They will also have the opportunity to learn how to lead worship experiences, learn outdoor living skills, lead archery and practice sailing.  The UMC’s mission is to create disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.  This program intentionally takes time to create disciples from these young leaders through training them to be able to be an effective leader on the Casowasco ministry team.

Some certifications require a camper to be 15 years and 6 months old at minimum. Camper scholarships are available for all overnight Casowasco programs! Visit our website or call our office for more information.
