Interested in our Discipleship program but you don’t know what to expect? Here is some more information:
Our focus is on the spiritual formation of young people. Teaching them who God is and who God made them to be. Through a series of personality and spirituality tests we help you to see the special gifts and talents God gave you. He also designed you to connect with him in specific ways, whether that is through music, nature, art or other ways.
We also cover many different topics such as worship, prayer, personal devotions and many others. By inviting many different guests speakers you will be sure to get a wide perspective on many topics.
During this program you will be taking day trips to different organizations to get hands on experience serving God and others. Some of the organizations that you will be likely to visit are Why Not City Missions in Brantford or The Gleaners. This community involvement will completely cover your required 40 hours of volunteer service to graduate high school.
Now with more camp involvement than before. We have extended the program by two weeks to fit in more camp involvement. This is a great way to develop leadership, try new things and learn how to be a staff member at camp in the future.
One of our favourite parts of the program is the weeks where you will be working alongside one of our counselors to co-counsel our grade school and special needs campers.
You may help out with our Munchkins program (grades 1-3), Adventure Camp (grades 4-9) and even with maintenance and the kitchen. If you want to work on staff at Camp some day this is a great way to gain experience.
The DISC program looks great on any resume especially if you are interested in being on staff at Camp Shalom one day. You will also receive a larger salary as a staff member at camp if you are a graduate of the DISC program.
Camp is all about having fun. In this program you will go camping for a few days and experience all the excitement of camp like canoes and kayaks, the pool and splash pad, and arts and drama. Because of the small group in this program (usually 4-10 campers) there is a lot of flexibility to learn and do what your group wants.
