LYLE Program

The LYLE Program is a progression of leadership camp experiences to prepare high school students for a lifetime of faith in action. Be ready for a life changing camp experience different than any you have had before.

The Lutheran Youth Leadership Experience (LYLE) program is a leadership development program that combines leadership skills, service, and each young person’s individual God-given gifts and interests. Thisprogram provides intensive and challenging hands-on leadership experiences through participation in the camp community and experiential learning sessions. The program is designed for youth that are excited about camp and the community that it brings. We strive to teach youth useful skills and empower them to become an active member of their church and community while still enjoying all of the camp activities that Camp Chrysalis offers.

If you have more questions regarding this program or would like to discuss other possibilities and experiences, please contact Jay Miller, Director of Camp Chrysalis at (830) 257-6340 or e-mail jay@crosstrails.org.
