May 24-27, 2013
Hosted by Trinity Lutheran College in partnership with Holden Village
Where: Holden Village, near Chelan, WA
What: A servant leadership training event for high school youth with potential for leadership in church, school, community, and the world. Using Holden Village as a “leadership lab,” the youth will be involved a variety of service projects each day, participate in Holden’s worship life, and be trained in a servant leadership process developed by the Service And Learning Leadership Team (SALLT) Project at Trinity Lutheran College.
This leadership event is being provided in place of the Holden May Youth Weekends, which will likely resume after mine remediation work is completed at Holden Village. For more information about Holden Village, visit www.holdenvillage.org.
Trainers: Dave Ellingson and Mark Jackson, professors at Trinity Lutheran College and leaders of the SALLT Project.
Who can attend: Two youth per church (preferably one male and one female) and one adult advisor. We recommend sophomores or juniors who exercise leadership potential. Please note: The minimum age is 15 (at the time of the event) as required by Holden Village for safety reasons. There are no exceptions to this policy.
The total number of participants for this event is capped at 45 due to space limitations at Holden Village.
When: Four days/three nights over Memorial Day weekend, Friday, May 24 through Monday, May 27. The group departs via boat transport from Field’s Point Landing (near Chelan, WA) at 9:00 a.m. on May 24 and returns approx. 5 p.m. on May 27. Participants must stay at Holden for the duration of the event. Late arrivals or early departures aren’t possible, as boat transportation is reserved and cannot be altered.
Cost: $165 per person, which includes round trip boat fare, three nights lodging and 10 meals at Holden Village, and the event program.
To register: Spaces will be allotted on a first-come, first-served basis by groups submitting a Group Reservation Form (download below) with the registration fee of $165 per person paid in full via check. Submission of this form (with accompanying payment) is the ONLY way to reserve your space.
Registration will open March 11, 2013, with reservations determined by postmark date. Registrations postmarked before this date will be returned.
Individual Registration Forms (download below) are then due by April 8. Groups that do not submit all forms by this date will be cancelled with full payment returned.
After the cap of 45 participants is reached, groups will be placed on a waiting list and will be contacted after April 1 should space become available. Groups not able to participate in the 2013 event will receive priority consideration for a similar 2014 event, if offered.
