Servant And Leadership Training
SALT (Servant And Leadership Training) is the counselor-in- training program for boys at Camp Hemlock. This experiential learning leadership program is designed primarily for young men who are 15 years old by July 1. SALT is for young men who aspire to leadership for Christ. It is a physically, mentally, and spiritually demanding program that incorporates intense camping experiences and leadership skill development. Successful completion is a prerequisite for serving on staff. The requirements for admission to the SALT program are:
A personal relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
- A desire to grow in Christ and serve Him, i.e., be “the salt of the earth.” Matthew 5:13.
- 15 years old by July 1.
- A successful interview with Camp Board representatives.
- Two completed reference forms.
- Completion of the Battalion ‘Explorer’ in Adventure Trails before arrival. Please contact us at email@example.com if you are not in a Battalion program to obtain a copy of Adventure Trails.
SALT Session A: June 26-July 23, 2022
SALT Session B: July 3-July 30, 2022
Session placement is determined after the interview process. We will place applicants into sessions to balance out size, personalities, and strengths. Please plan ahead to have all weeks available for attendance.
Why the firm July 1 age cut-off?
To be on boys’ junior staff the following year, your son must be 16 years old. Extending the cut-off date would mean that he would be too young to be on staff.
Why is SALT Four Weeks Now?
We are excited to be able to provide an extra week of leadership training. SALT will participate in the new Cornerstone Challenge High School Leadership Week.
