The SALT Program

FOR BOYS AGE 14-17

The Service And Leadership Trainee (SALT) Program is for boys who are ready to take the next step and transition from being a camper to being a servant-leader. All candidates must apply for and be accepted into the program before registering for any sessions.

This program is for young men age 14-17 who desire to:

- Be invested in by excellent male Christian mentors.
- Be trained in Servant-Leadership.
- Learn experientially through serving other summer campers.
- Live in community with their brothers in Christ.

All SALT Program candidates must:

- Apply and be accepted into the program prior to May 15, 2018.
- Attend ALL SALT Training Week (Sunday, 6/10 through Friday, 6/15).
- Choose from one of these SALT Program Sessions:

  1. SALT Program Session I : Sunday, June 17 through Friday, June 29
  2. SALT Program Session II: Sunday, July 1 through Friday, July 13

- Participants accepted in the SALT Program must pay the SALT Program Fee ($175/week) for each of the Service Sessions to help pay for food, housing, leadership staffing, & program costs. We do not charge a fee for the mandatory SALT Development Week. The minimum two week service, plus training week commitment will cost $350. All five weeks would be $700.
- Returning SALT are encouraged to participate in the whole 2018 SALT Program (all five weeks, including training). First year SALT are advised to only sign up for one program session.
- After being accepted, SALT Participants will be registered for their chosen session(s), and the $175/week program fee added to their account. Balance should be paid before or on the first day of any session.

One part of the Wilderness Ridge mission is to provide outdoor experiences for those with financial need.

Our price is already about 1/2 the average price for a similar summer camp in the state of Texas.

Through designated donations and our partnership with Psalm 68five and the Christian Camp & Conference Association, we are able to provide scholarships based on need.

If you know of anyone who could use assistance getting to summer camp and/or would like to make a donation then contact Lead Director Andy Stem at astem@forestglen.org or (936) 295-7641.
