L.I.F.E. Guard is an opportunity available for high school students looking for a service-based faith experience at Akita. The acronym L.I.F.E. means "Last Is First Eternal" and comes from Matthew 19:30: "But many who are first will be last, and the last will be first." This verse is a reminder of the spirit behind the work performed by this group.
A crew of high school students will devote up to two camp sessions to serving the camp, campers, and God. By doing much of the behind-the-scenes work that enables camp to run so smoothly for the campers, the participants learn how to give of themselves without seeking any credit or praise. The "Guard Experience" is the next step in the pursuit of a deeper understanding of their faith.
