Leaderfest @ Camp Ginger Cascades
Jan 10 @ 8:30 am – 6:00 pm

REGISTER NOW!

Leaderfest is a one-day fun, casual and relaxing A.W.E.S.O.M.E. event for volunteers – whether you are a volunteer working with girls, other youth groups or even adults. There are no opening or closing ceremonies, no gifts to bring and no special dress. Just a chance to sit back, enjoy yourself and make new friends! You can also extend your weekend by staying overnight Friday and/or Saturday at camp. New this year is a change of season. While we have traditionally held Leaderfest in the fall, we’ve decided to enjoy this relaxing event after the holidays! Learn more about the event!

While you enjoy this great leadership retreat, your school-age children (both girls and boys) can enjoy the Sing In the New Year childcare, a day of singing and activities around camp 8:30 am to 5:30 p.m. on the same Saturday for a fee of $10. Register for childcare at Leaderfest Childcare: Sing In the New Year. If they are not already linked to your account, you can utilize your ADD FAMILY MEMBER button within your eBiz account to add your child. You can then register yourself for Leaderfest and then register your child for Sing In the New Year.

You can also access PDF files to print:
