Our Story

Leadership Camps began in 1982 with a vision to provide spiritual development and leadership training among children and youth. We operate on the campus of Abilene Christian University providing an exciting and engaging summer camp experience for campers entering the 4th grade through college freshmen. Our simple mission is to equip campers for the Christ-centered journey…one camper at a time.

Our three camps offer unique experiences for students in elementary, middle school, and high school. In 1982, Kadesh Life Camp offered this opportunity for high school students. Learning to Lead was introduced in 1985 to offer an age-appropriate experience for upper-elementary and middle school students. In 1997, MPulse was introduced to provide a specific and unique challenge for middle schoolers seeking to find their place in Christian community.

While many things have changed over the last forty years, our emphasis remains on personal spiritual growth through dynamic worship, community development, and service/servant leadership. Each of our camps is a premiere spiritual formation event for campers, staff, and volunteers alike. Don’t forget, you’re supposed to be here!
