Black School







Formerly known as Black School, GOLD School is our leadership school, open to students entering their senior year or having just graduated.

The amount of students in GOLD School changes every year - sometimes there are two students, other times, there are twenty!

Students apply to join GOLD School and spend the week in the discipleship group serving the camp in a variety of ways while diving deep into curriculum.
