YOU CAN Make a Difference for All Eternity

FIS Chaplaincy has teamed up with Ron Hutchcraft Ministries and On Eagles' Wings to attend Warrior Leadership Summit (WLS), a summer camp experience for Native American and First Nations young people from all over North America.

Here are the details...

Warrior Leadership Summit, held each summer in Illinois, is a youth discipleship conference for Native people ages 15-35. During the five-day leadership conference, participants worship, learn, have fun, and connect with each other. More importantly, the young people are equipped and empowered to grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus.

Each year over 700 young people from nearly 100 tribes across the US and Canada attend WLS. Excitement is already building at the Flandreau Indian School with a record number of students asking to register.

TOTAL COST is $250 per person

Includes travel, lodging, meals and camp registration.

We need individuals and groups like you to help.

Would you consider “adopting” a student? 


"I never had the chance to go to camp before,

so WLS was a first time experience."

"Because of this camp, because of Jesus,

I know my life is in God's hands."

"I've come to know God and accept him into my life.

It's okay to love God and be Native."

"Seeing the nations represented to praise our Savior is amazing."

WLS attendees have the opportunity to:

  • Be part of large group praise and teaching sessions called Warrior Circles;
  • Attend seminars and workshops on specific issues related to Native American and First Nations people called Battle Councils;
  • Network and build relationships in a Christian environment with other Native American and First Nations young people;
  • Have fun through daily recreation times where various athletic tournaments are held including basketball, softball, volleyball, and floor hockey as well as late night activities;
  • Speak with trained counselors who can help in dealing with various life issues; and
  • Hear from respected Native American Christian elders and learn from their stories of hope and faith in Jesus Christ.

With your contribution, current and former Flandreau Indian School students have another opportunity to encounter the hope and love of Christ at this life-changing event and develop a deeper understanding of their culture and faith.
