Youth Servant Leaders

Youth Servant Leaders

The Program

Are you hungry for the Word of God? Do you want to be challenged to love harder, engage deeper, and serve more? The Youth Servant Leader Program (YSL) prepares high school-age youth ages 15 and older to be servant leaders at camp, at church, and in their communities.

YSLs spend a week of leadership training gaining skills and digging deeper into Scripture. Following leadership training, YSLs are eligible for a week or more of service at Camp Omega. During their service week, YSLs are given countless opportunities to serve by:

  • Giving morning or evening devotions
  • Washing dishes
  • Connecting with campers through cabin activities
  • Leading games and songs
  • And so much more!

“Being a YSL mattered to me because I was able to play a role in His mission just by hanging out with kids and teaching them about Jesus. It’s rewarding to help Camp Omega function and be a beautiful place for all people to come grow in Christ. Also, the spaghetti is amazing.”

– Patrick Schultz
