A Year Holy to the Lord
The Gap Year at Camp Elim is for high school graduates (or equivalent) who are looking to experience a year of Growth and Preparation. Growing in faith as they serve the Lord and abide in Him. Preparing themselves for what's ahead.
Psalm 37:3 - "Trust in the Lord and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness."
Holy to the Lord
Holy means separate or dedicated to the Lord. Scripture teaches us to be faithful to God in the little things, and Holy as He is Holy, even when we are unclear about the big decisions of life, we press on toward the prize. If you are a high school graduate or college student unsure of the big picture God has for your life, and you’re thinking about taking a break from school, we are thrilled to introduce the Gap Year at Camp Elim! Give the year to the Lord at Camp.
We have training in ministry, in-depth Bible study, personal mentoring, and local church outreach in the Colorado Front Range area as you seek Him. Up to eight students will be living and working together with the year-round staff at Camp from August to August. We are also excited to be partnering with a Christian college to offer college courses as part of the 2020 Gap Year Program!
GAP Year 2020-2021
The next Gap Year starts Fall 2020. Gap Year has a rolling admission; priority will be shown to applicants who meet the deadlines posted, but applications will continue to be accepted throughout the year. To be considered for the coming year outside the application period, please email email@example.com.
The costs associated with the Gap Year program (study curriculum, guest speakers, food, room and board, materials, offsite trips, etc.) are partially offset by the work students perform while serving at Camp.
Tuition for the 2019-2020 Gap Year is $3250. Tuition and fees for the 2020-2021 Gap Year program will be released soon! Check back soon for this year's application.
Students 18-22 years old need to have gone through staff training and worked at least one week at Camp Elim sometime in the past. A student can be accepted into Gap Year if they are scheduled to complete this prerequisite the summer before starting Gap Year but this acceptance will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
