The goal of Junior Leadership Development Academy is to prepare young men for a gradual, ever increasing role of leadership in their local outpost.  They will receive specialized training based on their camp selection. Boys will learn things about himself and what he needs to do to follow the Lord’s leading in his life.  Those attending Academy will bring back to their outpost a higher standard of excellence that will become infectious. We are honored to equip the next generation of Christ-like men, and to empower lifelong servant leaders.
