Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life’s pro-life camp for high school students returned this summer.
Life Leadership Camp, which had been canceled last year because of the pandemic, took place Aug. 8-11 at Camp Koronis in Paynesville, Minnesota.
About 25 students came to learn about abortion, prenatal development, assisted suicide, making the case for life, and more. They heard from guest speakers, engaged in group activities, and had a lot of fun.
Life Leadership Camp is designed to equip young people to make a pro-life difference in their schools and communities—and to be the pro-life leaders of tomorrow.
“The talks were super helpful and I learned a lot. … This has definitely strengthened my pro-life stance,” wrote one student afterward. “I really feel my pro-life journey has started a new chapter in my life,” wrote another, who emphasized the impact of “hearing the stories of the speakers and learning more about myself.”
Life Leadership Camp is one of numerous MCCL and National Right to Life programs that train young people in the pro-life movement. They include MCCL’s Student Day at the Capitol, the Pro-Life Oratory and Essay Contests, the National Right to Life Academy, and more.
