Summer Camps | Tools 4 Life
Tools 4 Life is a career and life skills camp designed to help teenagers gain the tools and confidence needed to take the next step after high school. This camp offers a unique opportunity for you to learn and grow through a variety of experiences.
Tools 4 Life Camp will be held July 16–22, 2017.
Tools 4 Life is open to incoming high school juniors and seniors. The camp offers seven days of activities and workshops in a rich environment of mentoring, personal growth and networking for life. During camp, we hold workshops and activities on campus, and also visit nearby colleges and take a career day trip. Campers are housed in dormitories and meals are included.
The theme this year is Dare to Prepare Your Heart, based on the parable of the sower. You need to have fertile ground for your dreams to come to fruition. Living a good life doesn't come overnight; it takes time and preparation. We will focus on educating the heart and mind, service and love toward the neighbor, oneself and the Lord.
