Here in Atlanta, it feels like summer! We are going to crack 80 degrees today, the trees are blooming, and people are outside. In the world of Life Teen Events, summer is the best season of all – as we get to host thousands of teens and adults at various camps, conferences, and trainings. Really, we are only 60 days away from the beginning of the summer season, and we have so much to tell you. Here are the latest updates:

Covecrest – Hiawassee: Edge Spots Sold Out, Life Teen Spots Remain
We have sold out of Edge Summer Camp spots at our Covecrest – Hiawassee location. But, we still have about fifty spots left for four different Life Teen weeks. Click here to register and get more information. It will be a life changing week for your teens and adult participants!
Some spots also remain for our Tepeyac Summer Camp in Arizona, but they are filling up too. Click here to register for those weeks.

Steubenville Youth Conference Registration Heating Up
Over 1100 participants have registered for our annual Steubenville Atlanta Youth Conference and almost 2000 participants have registered for Steubenville East in Rhode Island. These numbers are trending higher than in year’s past so register today before the conferences sell out! Not to worry though, we still have room at all three of our youth conferences: Steubenville East, Steubenville West, and Steubenville Atlanta. It is a weekend experience that will forever change the faith of your teens.
Life Teen Leadership Conference: Adding Capacity
Last year, we were privileged to host 435 participants to a packed Life Teen Leadership Conference at Benedictine College. With registration already hovering around those levels now, we have added capacity to reach 500. What that means is that there is still time to register for this week of transformational training, leadership development, community, and prayer for your teens.
Many of you are beginning to fill out forms for camp, conferences, and more. We are really excited about the online liability form and the PDF you receive after completing it. But, we know it is a new process and we are ready to help. Call Chris or Jordan at 404-252-8815 and we can walk you through all the changes.
See you this summer!
