48 Days Till Summer!

Program Highlight - LIT

Krislund's LIT program focuses on principles of Christian leadership and how teens can apply them throughout their life. The LIT program recognizes the unique challenges teens face as they complete high school and consider what is next. Our LITs complete a personality test to assess their strengths, have a specific Bible Study and Chaplain to enrich their experience, gain skills like belaying, leading group games, and working with people of different ages and stages, participate in service opportunities, and take off-site trips.

Each year, teens who finish this program only have positive things to say about the impact it has had on their life. The Leaders in Training program is a great personal development experience that can easily be added to college and job applications. Even more than that, LIT is a transformative experience that forges deep relationships and a faith-filled experience.

If you are looking for authenticity, worried about discerning what is next for your life, or just needing the support of other folks at the same age and stage as you, look no further than Krislund's LIT program - we promise you won't regret it!

History Lesson of the Month!

From Upper Lodge to Fellowship Lodge

One of the earliest buildings at Krislund was the Upper Lodge which stands at the end of the
long road through the camp. It is in a beautiful location, allowing for quiet evenings where one
can listen to the whippoorwills sing and perhaps see a deer or two. For campers the lodge, in
addition to being a rustic meeting place, provided bathroom facilities for those who resided in the
four cabins surrounding the building.
In 2009, the Krislund Board was seeking ways to make the accommodations more
attractive to adults who might come for retreats and group gatherings. Kevin Lloyd, a member
of the State College Presbyterian Church, was an active volunteer at that time agreed to take on
the project of helping with the construction of comfortable accommodations connected to the
Upper Lodge.
During that time members of the State College church had been helping to build camper cabins
and Rev. Barry and Linda Vance had been volunteering regularly focusing on other maintenance
tasks. At Kevin’s request, they all agreed to help with the construction of the new facilities.
Little did they know just how massive that project would be!
Throughout the winter, spring, summer and fall of 2010, many volunteers gathered to construct
what is now Fellowship Lodge. For the complete story, click here.
