Southwestern Leadership Camp
Southwestern Leadership Camp the Basics
What is Southwestern Leadership Camp all about, you ask? It is a week (Sunday to Saturday) set aside by Idyllwild Pines Christian Camp, our host, for Awana students. It is intense spiritual growth, exciting fun, great food, fabulous friends, dedicated counselors, and adventures!
This is your time to be s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-d in every way ... God will be molding you into His spiritual soldier. You will be memorizing verses from God’s Word daily, involved in daily Bible lessons, taking part in evening devotions with your cabin mates, learning how to develop a personal quiet time each day with the Lord, and competing with your team in some crazy activities!
Southwestern Leadership Camp is for Awana clubbers who are, in the Fall of 2018, entering sixth grade or higher and have completed this year's materials. Clubbers coming from T&T must have earned the Excellence Award by the end of your current club year and able to do a review in one sitting. Trek students must have completed this year’s Trek study, review’s and summaries. Journey students must have completed this year’s Journey material and summaries and are able to do a Review in one sitting with no more than two (2) helps.
Awana students will be divided into two (2) distinct camps with separate programs, teachers, and speakers ... JUNIOR HIGH CAMP is campers going into grades 6, 7, and 8. SENIOR HIGH CAMP is campers going into grades 9, 10, 11,12, and those having just graduated high school that we call "Super Seniors.”
All students accepted to attend camp are expected to participate in camp for the ENTIRE week. Each camper will be expected to:
1) complete the daily lessons
2) recite the daily verses (word perfect, no helps)
3) review the weeks' memory verses: five (5) to ten (10) Bible verses with no more than two (2) helps.
The above are required to be able to return to camp next year
