Year 1: Foundations

CLTD Year 1A | July 14 - July 26 | $560
CLTD Year 1B | Aug 11 - Aug 23 | $560

The goal of the CLTD program is to build relationships, create experiences, and develop people who are leaders in whatever context they find themselves in. This is done in a fun environment filled with peers, and staff who are committed to provide mentorship to help youth reach their potential and become the best version of themselves. 

 

CLTD Foundation is a 2-week-long summer program for students who have completed grade 8 and above. This first year explores the foundations of the Christian faith and teaches leadership principles which will continue to be fleshed out throughout the program. This happens through both teaching as well as team-building and other camp activities including helping with tasks like seaweed and dishes. 

 

Everyone is welcome to apply to this program no matter where they are at in their life journey. Students showing particular interest in growing in their faith will be prioritized, whether or not they already have a relationship with Christ. Camp Chestermere appreciates a diverse group and does its best to create a space of belonging for all.

Year 2: Discipleship

CLTD Year 2 | July 28 - Aug 9 | $445
*Week 2 of this program starts on Monday evening, one day later, due to the long weekend

The goal of the CLTD program is to build relationships, create experiences, and develop people who are leaders in whatever context they find themselves in. This is done in a fun environment filled with peers, and staff who are committed to provide mentorship to help youth reach their potential and become the best version of themselves. 

 

CLTD Discipleship is another 2-week-long summer program that builds upon the understandings put in place during Foundations. Year two CLTDs will participate in sessions that further explore both leadership and what it means to be a follower of Jesus. This program will continue to serve camp through tasks like dishes and seaweed but it will also reach out to the community by participating in a service day. 

Year 3: Leadership

CLTD Year 3 | June 24 - July 12 | $280

The goal of the CLTD program is to build relationships, create experiences, and develop people who are leaders in whatever context they find themselves in. This is done in a fun environment filled with peers, and staff who are committed to provide mentorship to help youth reach their potential and become the best version of themselves. 

This final year of the CLTD program continues to build on the leadership principles previously explored, while offering practical hands-on experience to put it all into action. This happens through a three week process. 

 

  • During the first week third year CLTDs are invited to Camp Staff Training with all the other staff members at the start of the summer. 

  • The second week dives deeper into leadership principles and personal growth strategies. 

  • Finally, during the third week CLTDs do a practicum in various areas around camp. 

After this practicum week participants are invited to apply to be hired by our staff team leaders to become official staff. 

 

This program is open to those who have completed either ‘CLTD - Discipleship’ or anyone who had completed grade 10 and is interested in becoming staff.
