The Lura S. Tally Center for Leadership Development is proud to bring the General Shelton Leadership Camp to Methodist University!

About the Shelton Leadership Camp

The General Shelton Leadership Camp is a one-week summer residential experience for rising freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors in high school that takes place on the campus of Methodist University in Fayetteville, N.C. The Shelton Leadership Camp is designed to help students expand their knowledge and skills of what it takes to be an effective leader. General Shelton’s cornerstones of values-based leadership – honesty, integrity, compassion, diversity, and social responsibility – are the foundations of the experience. The core curriculum focuses on leadership roles and accountability, team building, leadership styles and situations, social responsibility, integrity as a leader, public speaking, changing behaviors, and goal setting.

Cost to Attend

The cost to attend is $600 for the week-long residential summer leadership camp. This includes the deposit, lodging, meals, all curriculum materials, low and high ropes training, transportation during the week, and evening activities.

Various scholarships are available:
