Shift is Ghormley’s High School Leadership Program for teens going into their Junior or Senior year of High School.
The goal of this program is to build strong young leaders through a combination of camp service opportunity and intentional spiritual development. We believe that this leadership program will not only enhance our camping ministries, but ultimately create stronger leaders and followers of Jesus in the schools, churches, and homes of the students who participate in this program. Ultimately we seek to grow Christ’s kingdom, and Shift is an avenue to accomplish that.
A student in this program will have a variety of leadership development experiences: they directly assist our summer staff counselors in cabins, serve in crucial roles in camp operation, take part in daily Bible studies designed to stretch their faith, and experience intentional mentorship from one of our college summer staff and the Shift supervisor. Between camps Shift students are given time to rest and will also enjoy special outings and activities organized by the Shift supervisor.
Being a part of Shift is hard work, but we believe that three weeks in this program will stretch them in new ways that will benefit them not only now, but will have a lasting impact on their lives.
There is a required application and interview process for anyone interested in Shift.
