A Year Holy to the Lord
The Gap Year at Camp Elim is for high school graduates 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."
Gap Year will be on hiatus during the 2019/2020 season. Check back soon for further updates.
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.
GAP Year 2019-2020
The next Gap Year starts August 18, 2019. Gap Year has a rolling admission; priority will be shown to applicants who meet the deadlines below, but applications will continue to be accepted throughout the year. To be considered for the coming year outside the application period, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, but due to generous contributions from our donors we are able to provide a $1250 scholarship ($625/semester) upon request. In addition, a $250 discount will be given for applications complete with references received by April 15th, 2019. This means the cost of Gap Year could be just $1750!
50% tuition is due August 15th, 2019, and the balance is due December 15th, 2019.
Students 18-22 years old need to have gone through Servant Leader Training and worked at least one week of summer camp 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.
