The Ignite Leadership Training Program is a unique, four week program for young Christian leaders who want to grow in their faith and leadership experience. Participants from all over the province, both newcomers and Camp Arnes veterans, make Ignite a strong community for developing leadership, teamwork and character. We strive to create a program where Ignites will be surrounded by other young leaders committed to growing as well.

Why Choose Ignite?

God wants us to be the best that we can be in any job or activity. Ignite doesn’t just want to create Camp Arnes Staff; we want to help you grow in confidence in any role (Sunday school teacher, coach, youth leader, small group leader, school body president). Ignite focuses on the importance of a deep relationship with God. With a good relationship, you’ll be prepared to take on any opportunity that comes your way.
