Utah - LDC Staff

  • “My whole perspective on life has changed, I can do anything…”
  • “I realize that even though we haven’t known each other for a lifetime, I really am a gift to everyone I meet...”
  • “This week I learned more about myself than I thought possible…”

Here’s what parents of LDC participants are saying:

  • "Definitely send your son or daughter to this. It is part of his or her coming of age in my opinion. I have two younger children who I will be sending to this program as well with no hesitation. Top notch program..."
  • "It's an incredible week of growth in building self-worth, care and understanding of others, and in developing positive leadership abilities."
  • "The staff and the ideas behind this camp will have a lasting impression on the kids that will attend for a lifetime. I know that when my two boys came home they could not say enough about what they learned about themselves and about the kids they were fortunate enough to meet.”
