    DESCRIPTION

    Junior Training Camp is the first required camp at the Academy for your saber; where you learn leadership in the local patrol and group; and how to build relationships and do effective ministry in your church, community, and missions so that you can be a trained helper in your church.

    JTC will help boys discover answers to these questions:

    What are my God-given (natural) talents and strengths and how am I developing them?

    Do I have what it takes to be a godly man?

    What is God’s plan for my life?

    • Working in a patrol (team)
    • How to effectively lead a small group
    • Patrol spirit, including designing & printing t-shirts and patrol flag
    • How to get to know a new friend quickly
    • How to pray with someone, what's appropriate?
    • Learn/Review essential Outdoor skills (Camping Safety & Camping Merits)
    • Cooking for large groups
    • Introduction to Adventure Camps
    • Morning Devotions & Evening Services
