Leadership in Action

LIA is a comprehensive Christian leadership training program for high school students that have completed their sophomore, junior, or senior year. LIA is specially designed to provide a "brand new" camp experience, and to give its participants the opportunity to grow much deeper in their relationship with Christ. LIA is perfect for those that want to grow in their faith, step out of their comfort zone, tackle new challenges, make incredible friends, and serve camp in an awesome way.

LIA is Traveling to Pace Bend Park!

The Location

Pace Bend Park is a beautiful peninsula on Lake Travis. Found just west of Austin, it's about a two hour drive from Deer Creek Camp. There are bathrooms, water, and charcoal grills on the grounds for public use.

The Activities

Cliff Jumping! These cliffs are up to 50 feet tall; be prepared to conquer the heights. LIA will also get the opportunity to hike trails through the forest that's located at the center of the peninsula, leading to a stunning overlook of Lake Travis. Oh, and don't forget Canoe races!

The Camping Life

"Rough it" is the mentality: staying in tents or hammocks, no showers, no technology, no food! (Okay, that may be an exaggeration... there will be food). 

The Duration

Trip will take place during the second week of camp. LIA will arrive at Pace Bend on Monday afternoon, spend two nights there, and then leave Pace Bend on Wednesday morning.

The Experience

There's something about nature that draws people to God. The camping lifestyle, the beautiful scenery, and the challenging activities all collide to take people beyond themselves. This is a time where conversations can go deeper than they could otherwise, and prayer can be more intimate than it is elsewhere.

The Food

Hobo packs (a favorite from last year's trip), omelettes in a bag, brats, and more will allow for the customization of food options on trip. And what's camping without some awesome desserts like campfire cones?

Christian Leadership Camp

Grow in Your Faith

Every aspect of our LIA program is centered around Christ. In the two weeks that campers have at Deer Creek's Christian leadership camp, they are entrenched in Scripture and Prayer in hope of developing a greater understanding of who Christ is and who we are in Him. The LIA curriculum is specially designed to instill a culture of seeking God and relying on Him, in the hopes that campers will learn to share that culture with their communities at home.

"Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."
-Mark 5:19

Build Deep-Rooted Friendships

LIA intentionally strengthens Godly relationships among campers and staff. The friendships built at Deer Creek are rooted in the “I'm Third” lifestyle, where each individual learns to put God first, others second, and themselves third.

"A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for a time of adversity"
-Proverbs 17:17

Conquer Challenges

LIA campers engage in difficult mental and physical challenges in the hopes that they can use those experiences to grow into the Christians that God has created them to be.  From running the Gauntlet, to conquering the G.A.P. Wall, to competing in the Milk Crate Challenge, campers are forced to work as a team, relying on one another for support and encouragement. This fosters a community of inclusion and belonging, and as the session progresses each participant learns how to trust God more fully.

"But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us." Romans 8:37

Discover Your Potential

LIA will meet for eight different "Summits." Summits are involved and active learning times when principles of Christian Leadership will be discussed, and campers will learn who God is and who God made them to be. This firm foundation will allow campers to own their faith and live boldly with Christ through challenges.

 

"Let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith."

-Hebrews 12:1b-2a
