For 10th 11th, & 12th graders

Leaders In Training (LIT) is an application-only program that develops spiritually-minded young leaders into fully dedicated disciples of Jesus Christ. LIT is a two-week program for campers designed to mentor, encourage, and develop Christian students into disciples of Christ and to serve as leaders in their homes, churches, schools, and communities.

Our goal is to develop campers in their faith, character, and heart to serve. LITs go through three types of workshops: Leadership skills, Spiritual Disciplines, and Biblical Interpretation taught by our Program and Solid Rock Directors, and the LIT Leaders. These are spiritual formation, leadership, and biblical foundation. It is designed to help campers better understand what it means to be a follower of Jesus and become a leader in his Church. 

LITs go through various team-building exercises, service projects, Bible studies, worship, and shadowing Lake Beauty's summer staff. This program has become a popular capstone in a high school student’s life. Many of our summer staff positions are filled by former LITs.
