People often ask how we create such powerful programs for students at Mount Hermon. The first step is having a creative team of gifted people. God has blessed Mount Hermon Youth with an incredible team of people. This team follows a template for creating themed programs. The process starts with the Bible. #1: One […]
Leading students one step closer to Jesus: this is the vision that drives all of Mount Hermon Youth and Young Adult programs. This is true regardless of whether the programs are at the Conference Center or Ponderosa Lodge and regardless of whether the programs last a weekend, a week, or two weeks. This summer we […]
18 years ago, I was on Mount Hermon’s summer staff at Ponderosa Lodge. It was my first official paid ministry job and it was amazing! I still remember what God did in, and through, me that summer. At times, I felt overwhelmed because of my responsibilities. Oftentimes, I didn’t feel think I could be, and […]

Mount Hermon will always be near and dear to my heart because it is where Christ pursued me to be His disciple. This past summer, I experienced Ponderosa Lodge from an entirely new perspective; I was a CILT. CILT, or Campers in Leadership Training, is a two week program in which high school students are trained to share the love of God with junior highers
Mount Hermon’s Ponderosa Lodge is safe. My heart is secure in the Lord because of the people He surrounded me with there. Those people have helped me keep my camp high moving and getting better. Through them, I see God’s grace and God’s love. Thank you, Ponderosa Lodge.
