Telios Leadership Program

July 20-25, 2020

Outdoor Recreation and Community Service Adventure

Telios is a week-long, summer program designed specifically for incoming first year students who want to make the most of their first year at Cal Lutheran! Telios will take students on a variety of adventures across Ventura County, including applied service and unique outdoor experiences. In addition to learning more about yourself and your strengths, Telios will allow students to better understand Cal Lutheran's resources and opportunities for involvement and leadership. Above all, Telios will provide an opportunity to build strong relationships with other incoming, first year students.

  • "Telios was a good bonding experience and a great way to meet other incoming first years in an environment that provided for lasting friendships and new experiences." - Morgan
  • "I really enjoyed the service aspect of the trip, it helped me identify what area of service I wanted to go into and it also fostered relationships that I still maintain throughout the year." -Jeffrey
  • "Telios was one of the best experiences I had with Cal Lutheran because it quickly oriented me into life at college, gave me 20 amazing friends, as well as helping to develop my leadership skills which I have been using ever since." -Dominic
