High School Camp Sessions

Covenant Partners (Age 16-18) (4 Boy Spots & 3 Girl Spots Open) : 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 8 days at camp, including the weekend. This is an incredible opportunity for youth to work and serve in the camp environment. Please contact our Program Director, Ryan Hughes (ryan@johnknoxcenter.org) to get more information about this leadership program.
