Camp Esther

Camp Esther is a day-long or weekend camp educating middle school students to take the first step into pro-life leadership.

At Camp Esther, students learn that they have a role in the pro-life movement, and that they are not too young to begin defending life. They learn that, for such a time as this, they must be leaders, just as Queen Esther of Persia, who saved her people from genocide.

Nehemiah Institute

The Nehemiah Leadership Institute is an intensive week-long camp designed to equip high school and college students to be the pro-life leaders of today.

The Nehemiah Leadership Institute is the third in the Life & Leadership Camp series, and is designed for advanced students who are serious about tackling pro-life issues. Students in the Nehemiah Leadership Institute will learn practical strategies for addressing life issues in the real world, and will leave the Institute well prepared to make a significant impact in their communities.

Years after Jerusalem was laid waste by the Babylonians, Nehemiah led the movement to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem in order to create a civilization that would be a light to other nations. At the Nehemiah Leadership Institute, through a combination of expert academic instruction and on-the-field practical experience, students learn that they are the people who must rebuild the walls of the culture of life.
