High School Camp Sessions (9th Grade* - Graduating Seniors)

Covenant Partners (Age 16 -18): This leadership experience is unique to John Knox and gives participants the important opportunity to develop skills, strengths, and talents while benefiting local churches in the form of service and leadership. During their time, C.P.'s learn leadership skills, develop individual talents and gifts, and become familiar with a variety of educational resources. They also focus on personal growth by challenging themselves mentally, physically, and spiritually; and will have the opportunity to put those skills into action working while at camp. Covenant Partners spend two weeks at camp (excluding weekends). This is an incredible opportunity for youth to work and serve in the camp environment.                                                                                                                                        May 31 - June 12 $525 (no discounts)
