Christian Leadership Training 2023

Intentional Challenges, Deeper Faith

What is CLT?

This capstone experience allows our oldest campers to pursue outdoor adventure, overcome physical challenges, and develop a personal understanding of the Gospel. This 2-week program is an unforgettable experience that campers won't want to miss out on.

Why CLT?

CLT Campers will arrive at Camp Cho-Yeh alongside the rest of our resident campers. While at Cho-Yeh, they’ll get to do some of their favorite parts of camp (A/O, Flex Time, Activities, etc.) while getting to try out things exclusive to CLT. One of the main experiences that makes CLT so special is getting to head to Camp Eagle for a week of high adventure and incredible bonding in the Texas Hill Country. The trip that they get to embark on will challenge them in new ways as they lean into each other and the Lord. Our goal is for the CLT experience to be something that campers remember for a lifetime, and brings their time as a camper to a grand finale.
