Compare Summer Events
Student Life offers multiple event types to choose from in the summer and spring to meet the specific needs of your students. Worship gatherings and Bible study are the core elements of every event. Following are descriptions of each event type. Below the descriptions is a chart comparing our summer youth camp options specifically.
- Student Life Camp: Original
Take your 7th-12th graders away from life's distractions for five days to completely invest in their spiritual formation. Enjoy fun community building activities and engaging small group Bible study each day as well as Gospel-centered worship every morning and evening. Youth Ministers are free to invest completely in deepening relationships with students, volunteers and other ministers.
- Student Life @ The Beach
Connect the sun, sand and surf to a spiritually transforming encounter with God for 7th-12th graders. Five days at the beach provides an awe-inspiring environment for teenagers to have small group Bible studies and hear the Gospel at morning and evening worship while forming tight relationships with their friends and leaders.
- Student Life Mission Camp
Open students' eyes to the needs next door and across the street at mission camp. 7th-12th grade students start and end each day with a worship experience while spending the day serving on projects ranging from light home repair to backyard Bible clubs.
- Student Life Urban Serve
7th-12th graders' carry the Great Commission into the heart of the city by serving at urban sites with all types of need, including backyard Bible clubs, light construction and assisting the elderly. Each night concludes with Gospel-centered worship, teaching, videos and drama.
- Student Life for Kids Camp
Establish a solid spiritual foundation for 3rd - 6th graders by pointing them to the truths of the Bible and encouraging a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ. Over 4 days and 3 nights, kids will enjoy morning and evening Gospel-centered worship experiences, age-appropriate small group Bible studies and fun-tastic group building recreation.
- Servant Life
Short-term international mission experiences can quickly burst the comfort bubble surrounding so many teenagers, transforming their worldview and igniting their faith. Groups and individuals can choose to either live the Gospel overseas or serve international communities residing right here in the States.
- Student Life Conference
A weekend conference in God's Word for 7th - 12th grade students that challenges them with Jesus' call to "Be Last" in Mark 9:35. Immerse teenagers in powerful, insightful teaching, engaging worship and modern parables - all designed to shift our natural self-centered worldview to a Gospel-centered servant lifestyle.
A free worship gathering for youth ministers, ministry teams and spouses to rest, reflect and recharge. Today's most dynamic teachers and worship leaders focus on the "who" a minister is created to worship and serve - Jesus Christ - rather than the "how to" strategies of ministry.
- Student Life Camp encourages teambuilding through recreation
- Student Life Mission Camp & Student Life Urban Serve provides mission projects in the local community
- Student Life @ The Beach offers a laid-back schedule with more free time to explore your location
- Church Connect provides time to explore the area or organize your own activities at select Student Life Camp locations
- Program Only allows a church the opportunity to enjoy the camp programs, but take care of their own housing and meals.
Whichever option you choose, it’s a week of focused learning, worship, relevant drama, fun community building and most importantly, God’s Word on center stage.
