Servant and Leadership Training (SALT)
Thank you for your interest in our SALT program. We recognize that many of our TREK youth have a hard working spirit and a desire to give back to the camp that has been an impactful part of their summer while they were campers. The purpose of this program is to provide a role for youth entering Gr.10 & 11 who want to serve at camp in another capacity besides as Junior Counsellors. SALT volunteers will receive extensive servant leadership training, participate in team building and bonding activities, and act as relief for our Support Crew. The SALT program provides youth with the opportunity to shadow many ‘behind the scenes’ roles at camp and to gain hands on experience in those support areas.
Our leadership training program is founded on the principle spoken by Jesus Christ:
“Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be servant of all.”
Being a SALT participant is an opportunity to learn and grow in servant leadership. We look to Jesus’ life in the gospels as our example of how to lead through servanthood and self-sacrificial love.
There are three weeks of camp (SALTs are welcome to attend only one week of camp per year.):
July 8 – 13 2019 Camp Week One (Grade 4-6) (Junior Counsellors entering Grade 10)
July 15 – 20 2019 Camp Week Two (Grade 6-8) (Junior Counsellors entering Grade 10 or 11)
July 22 – 27 2019 Camp Week Three (Grade 8-9) (Junior Counsellors entering Grade 11)
Please note that TREK is only able to allow each youth to participate as a Jr. Staff for a maximum of two years. Thus, if you have already participated at TREK as a Junior Counsellor or S.A.L.T for two years, we encourage you to apply as a co-counsellor or support staff.
The cost for the SALT program is $130.00 (includes camp T-shirt & GST). Applicants will receive online confirmation that their application has been received, and successful applicants will be contacted following our selection process with further details.
Please contact the camp coordinator for more information.
