Position Description

L.E.A.D. Program Leadership Experience And Discipleship

Ontario Pioneer Camp


L.E.A.D. is a ten month (September-June) intentional discipleship program that focuses on character, spiritual, leadership and skill development while teaching outdoor education in a Christian camp setting.


Target age 18-25. 
High school, college or university graduates
Demonstrated aptitude for leadership and a genuine interest in growing spiritually.


Spiritual Development

A key component of the L.E.A.D Program is the spiritual development of the participant in their Christian faith and life.  They will be involved in Biblical exposition, book studies, attending church and practicing spiritual disciplines.  Intentional focus will be given to spiritual development and engaging faith in life and ministry.

Leadership Development

Leadership development occurs as participants are exposed to all aspects of leadership both in theory and practice. Through practical teaching and supervised experience each participant will grow in their understanding of ministry and leadership. During the ten months, participants will gain practical experience serving the year round ministry of camp including working with churches and teaching outdoor education to school groups. One outcome will be to place the participants for the summer, at the conclusion of the program, in a role within the organization, as determined by their skills, evaluation and organizational opportunities.

Character Development

A key outcome is for each participant to have strengthened character so they are able to thrive personally and relationally.  Participants will be living in community.  Experiential lessons in character development will occur as participants are challenged in their responsibilities, attitude and relational skills. Specific teaching and books studies will address issues of integrity, personal values, and conflict resolution.   Through Bible study and teaching participants will be developing a Biblical perspective on current social and moral issues.

Competency and Skills Development

The L.E.A.D participants will grow in practical skill development and excellence in work through hands on experience.  Participants will rotate through a variety of areas including:  working with church groups and teaching outdoor education to school groups, food service, facilities, and administration.
