Emerging Leaders Institute (ELI)

Updated: Jan 14, 2022

We want to see high school students grow in their faith, make an impact, and develop as the leaders the world needs. Glen Lake Emerging Leaders Institute is specifically designed to be the catalyst encouraging campers in their relationship with Christ, the church, and all people. It IS NOT a Bible study, or a Sunday school class, or a passion-packed worship event. It IS a guided tour of who God created you to be, how God created you to lead, what it means to be a servant leader, and what it means to live in Christian community. Emerging Leaders Institute • Online Information.

The Glen Lake Emerging Leaders Institute includes one weekend in April, four optional practicum weeks, and our High School Pathfinder week of camp., Highly trained coaches guide current 10th, 11th, & 12th graders.


Be part of a ministry team committed to fostering Christian community and spiritual growth while ministering to children at Glen Lake Camp & Retreat Center.


Be a counselor and young Christian role model as part of a team reaching out to over 1,500 Glen Lake Campers


Be challenged as you discover your God-given strengths and learn servant leadership theories, small group dynamics, and how to cast a vision.


The Glen Lake Emerging Leaders Institute is a multi-week, immersive leadership development experience. Highly trained coaches guide 10th-12th graders to discover their God-given gifts, reflect on what it means to function as a Christian community, and practice servant leadership while making a difference as camp counselors.

During the Glen Lake Emerging Leaders Institute, participants focus on discovering their natural strengths followed by learning servant leadership theory, small group dynamics, and how to cast a vision. Then, during Practicum Weeks, participants put to practice what they have learned as volunteer counselors at Glen Lake Trailblazer Camps while continuing to receive guidance from Glen Lake Emerging Leaders Institute coaches.


Tuition for the Emerging Leaders Institute is set at $615.00. This includes ELI weekend in April, Pathfinder Camp, and any Trailblazer Camps the participant choose to serve.
