Applicants Accepted to ELI This Summer Will Receive $500 Leadership Award


ELI sponsorships drastically reduce the standard ELI fee from $645 to $145

The Experiential Leadership Institute (ELI) is a chance for rising 11-12th graders to grow in faith, develop as leaders, and make a difference. Now, thanks to ELI program sponsors, that chance is more affordable than ever with a $500 leadership award toward ELI's standard fee of $645 for all applicants accepted into the program. Why do ELI? Camp and Retreat Ministries offers these reasons to consider this life-changing leadership program...

  1. Learn about your gifts as a leader, leadership theories, group dynamics, and vision casting
  2. Make a difference in the lives of children and local church communities
  3. Practice servant leadership with peers from all over the North Georgia Conference
  4. Grow in your leadership abilities with daily coaching and feedback from mentors
  5. Gain the experience and receive the kind of leadership award that speaks to colleges
  6. Be part of a ministry team that builds memories and friendships that last forever
  7. Put yourself in an environment designed to be conducive to discerning God's call in your life 
  8. All of this - the training week and 1 to 9 weeks as a day camp counselor - costs only $145

"Last summer I had the most incredible experience of my life....The training week had a huge impact on the way I see myself as a leader....I loved learning the way people work together and my different strengths....I discovered that leadership doesn't have to be loud and crazy...and that my leadership style is very relational." - 2014 ELI Participant
