The History, Mission and Vision of LCT
The mission and vision of LCT to help form young men into virtuous leaders has continued over the years. Many LCT alumnae are now college graduates. Some have commented that their LCT experience has continued to help them in their new careers and ongoing friendships which began at the camp.
The first Texas location of LCT from 2005-2008 was a location on 400 acres of beautifully re-wooded countryside bordering Carolina Creek and Thomas Lake in the Lake Livingston area. It was an incredible site for the introduction of Leadership Camp Texas. It included cabins, cafeteria, a pool, sports fields and courts, a ropes course, and water sports.
In 2009 we found a location in the Texas Hill Country: 800 acres of rolling hills, natural springs, and woods near LBJ Lake & Marble Falls. This location had the same awesome facilities as before plus horse-back riding, hiking trails, spacious sports fields, first-rate dining, and paint-ball course.
For 2016 we have found a location near Columbus. This location features several hundred acres nestled in piney woods with all the necessary amenities for a great camp, including a 13-acre lake with a zip line.
LCT aims to help boys develop into fine, hard-working and courageous men who can be leaders among their peers. The camp's full, well-balanced schedule is designed to motivate the boys to use their talents in order to lead and serve others while developing good character and strong friendships. The Spiritual care of these activities is entrusted to Opus Dei, a personal prelature of the Catholic Church. Opus Dei seeks to spread the message that all are called to seek holiness in their everyday lives.
