Summer camp with Life Teen is an incredible opportunity to bring your teens into an incredible experience of life. Here teens can be free and confident in themselves, develop new friendships with other teens from your parish, and encounter God working in their lives. This is the summer that young people will begin to experience a bigger and better life than you ever thought possible. Life Teen Summer Camp also provides young adults with the opportunity to serve in a variety of roles, all with the focus of providing a safe, welcoming, exciting environment for teens to have an incredible summer camp experience while growing in their faith. No matter the gifts and talents of the young adult Life Teen can be a transformational experience where they not only lead teens closer to Christ but their own relationship with Christ becomes stronger.
A vital part of Life Teen Summer Camp is inviting people to join us as mission partners. These are those that will support us spiritually and financially through prayers and donations. No mission is successful without support; not only will camp be covered with intercession, but this is an opportunity to include individuals and families in this mission.
Registration for camp costs $230 that includes accommodation, resources, meals etc. We understand that $230 might be a bit too expensive for many young people. This is where YOU can join us on this adventure. Be a mission partner with Life Teen and sponsor a young person’s journey to camp. All donations are tax deductible and every little bit will help.

If this is your first time to Life Teen Summer Camp or you have been to every Summer Camp since it was started, the resources below give you a little glimpse into the model of the keynote sessions at Summer Camp.
The following resources will help you prepare yourself and your group for Life Teen Summer Camp. We highly recommend using the Edge Night (Youth Group Session) based on New Fire which is our theme for Summer Camp. You can use this resource with your group prior to arriving at Life Teen Summer Camp 2022. We highly encourage you to train your team of chaperones on relational ministry and small group facilitation.
