Leadership Camp Texas

Leadership Camp Texas is a 1-week summer camp to help boys entering 5th - 8th grades to develop into fine, hard-working and courageous men who can be leaders among their peers. Through cabin competitions, night games, Xtreme olympics, and many more LCT activities, the boys have a ton of fun while at the same time growing in manliness and virtue. 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 strong friendships.
