Summit reflection video on the 3rd Sunday of Advent with Rachel Penate
Covecrest is more than a retreat center and summer camp. Covecrest is a community of Catholics committed to transforming teens, transforming parishes, and transforming culture. Will you join us?
Hidden Lake is less than 75 miles north of Atlanta, Georgia. It's approximately a 1 hour and 25 minute drive from the city.
This world does not make it easy to be a good man. What we need are good brothers to help us along the way. The Life Teen Men's Retreats are great opportunities for men from all over the country to come together and rise up. With retreats in Tiger, GA and Big Bear, CA, this is a can't-miss retreat for any man looking to grow in their faith.
The annual Life Teen Women's Retreats in Tiger, GA & St. Louis, MO are incredible opportunities for women from all walks of life to come together to be refreshed, reinvigorated and refocused in their faith journey.
God wants to transform your heart every day, but He especially wants to transform it when you encounter Him at Mass.
Let Ascend help prepare your heart to encounter Christ in the readings at Mass.
Advent is here, and we want to help you make the most out of this time of preparation for the coming of the Lord. Let the 2016 Advent Companion guide you through each day with reflections, challenges, and more.
This is your one stop shop for great Catholic books, community, gifts, events, music, and resources. We are here to serve.
Edge helps middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ.
Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
College Life is a simple online series-based solution to the problem of keeping students connected to their Catholic faith in college.
Summers can be overwhelming for Youth Ministers – with so many different events offered that bless the teenage soul, how does a Leader discern which opportunities are the best “fit” for the teens in their specific youth group? When do you take teens to camp for a week and when is the young soul ready for Leadership Training?
The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish. We’re here to help ensure that all teens – no matter where they are on their faith journey – have an encounter with the God Who loves them and the Church He loved us enough to begin.
Each summer, Life Teen hosts six different Steubenville Youth Conferences (East, West, NYC, Atlanta, Lone Star, and NorCal) with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ. Evangelistic in nature, these weekend conferences are both a great “introduction” to the Gospel message for new or younger teens, while offering deep and moving experiences of prayer and fellowship for even your Youth Group regulars.
Come let our Life Teen Staff and volunteers spoil you – you work so hard for the teens and their families…let us work hard for you. Give your own spirit the gift of renewal and give your teens the inspiration they need to renew not only your youth group but your entire parish community. Join us for a weekend of engaging liturgies, inspiring music, challenging talks and overwhelming joy.
Steubenville West will take place on the campus of the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona. Dining will take place at dining halls on campus and housing will be in various dorms on campus as well. Once you arrive on campus, parking officials will guide you to registration. Follow this link for a map of the campus to help with planning.
Great question! Steubenville West is designed for high school students and their adult leaders, 21 and older.
Volunteer opportunity information will be available soon.
Group Leader: The adult responsible for organizing your trip and serving as the main contact for your group. Written and oral correspondence takes place between the group leader and the conference office. The group leader must be attending the conference and will be responsible for the entire group.
Adult Chaperone: Adult, age 21 +, attending to chaperone the youth. For the safety of the youth and to foster productive small group times, the ratio of adult to youth is 1 adult per 8 youth in your group. We ask that your group not exceed the maximum adult to youth ratio. This weekend is challenging physically and spiritually. It is a time of deep ministry and small group time. We recommend that chaperones feel comfortable directing, sharing with, and praying with youth.
Youth: Youth participants in the conference must be entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades in the fall of 2017 or have been a 2017 high school graduate.
In order to provide the best possible context for fellowship, sharing, ministry, and supervision, the youth conferences handle registration by groups only. No individual registrations will be accepted.
If you have a food allergy we need to be aware of (vegetarian, lactose intolerant, wheat/peanut allergy, etc.), please let us know. There is a section that allows you to share this information with us on the registration form. We always do our very best to accommodate your needs; however, it never hurts to bring some snacks just in case.
Tucson is very warm during the summer. Dress to be casual, comfortable, and modest.
We would love for you to concelebrate! We ask that you please bring your own vestments as we cannot promise that we will have enough or the correct size. We have a vesting room where you can leave your vestments all weekend.
Registration for all Steubenville Conferences will open on January 18th, 2017. Contact Erika Rosa at Steubenville@lifeteen.com for more information.
We will do our very best to help accommodate whatever needs that individual may have. Remember, we can only help as much as you communicate with us. For that reason, please contact the Life Teen office (480-820-7001) as early as possible to explain your need.
Although we strongly support Catholic family life, our staffing, facility constraints, and insurance regulations do not allow us to provide childcare. Meeting rooms and residence halls are not designed for the care of young children. In addition, the focus of the Adult Chaperones/Group Leader needs to be on the youth participants. If these adults bring their own children, their focus will be split. With the best care of the youth in mind, please refrain from bringing non-participant children with you.
Housing in campus dorms is included in your registration fee. You are more than welcome to stay off campus if you choose. If you are going to stay off campus, please let us know ASAP! We will discount your registration fee by $38/person. We are unable to provide transportation to and from your hotel site if you do this.
We require you to have one adult chaperone per eight teenagers. Also remember that if you are bringing male and female teens you MUST have a male and female chaperone. Priests do not count as chaperones.
Your bus driver can be accommodated on the U of A campus in a single dorm room for $70.00 total. You can also rent a room at a nearby hotel. We must know if you need on campus accommodations ASAP. We will not be able to feed your bus driver on campus. There are quite a few restaurants right around campus. Please make the necessary provisions.
Each participant should bring clothing appropriate/comfortable for a church function and warm weather, his or her personal items, sleeping bag, pillow, towel, washcloth, Bible, journal, and spending money (many participants like to get things from our bookstore).
We do have a limited amount of scholarship money available. To apply for these funds, please download this application: Scholarship Form.
We have a whole team ready to help you!
