Leadership Training Event (LTE)

Here's what people are saying about the Leadership Training Events, hosted by Lutheran Outdoor Ministries:

  • I really enjoyed Outdoor Ministry Philosophy and think it will be a great helping leading the camp into the future.
  • Thank you for helping me name what I didn't have language for.
  • Lutheran Theology was helpful for myself and re-shaping how this can be taught to staff.
  • The Human Resources session opened my eyes to how much I am in human resources. I was able to take away several positive ideas to add to how we hire and welcome summer staff.
  • In the Marketing/Communications session, I gained knowledge to pass on to our marketing director and this is an aspect that I have a bigger role than expected, so good base knowledge.
  • The Site and Facilities session gave good concrete ideas as well as putting a purpose to site and facilities management.
  • In spite of my struggle/frustration with leaving culture and race as implicit, tackling it from a theological lens was fascinating.
  • Loved the theological perspective on Diversity, and could really tell the presenter was passionate about the topic.
  • The Social Media and Policies session was highly useful - made me realize we need to examine our communication policy.
  • The Social Media and Policies session gave good ideas for policies and waivers. I like that the focus was on the behind-the-scenes of social media. We are changing our policies, so this was helpful.
  • The Risk Management session pointed out all that could be a risk and helped me evaluate our camp's "risk."
  • I learned a lot from this and it will be very helpful.
  • I really valued the Leadership Groups. Great people, great connections, great conversation!
  • I was in such a great Leadership Group - it was wonderful to debrief with them each day.
  • I really appreciated the opportunity to network and meet fellow colleagues of all ages! Also philosophy and risk management!
  • This event was very educational in many areas that are vital to every camp’s operations.
  • I feel as though I have gained a much broader knowledge of outdoor ministry, and have begun to create a nation-wide support group.
  • This LTE is a great overview of aspects of camping ministry for me. I needed to hear insights from those with more experience, and I did. Thank you!
  • What a great introduction to this crazy job!
