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 home to an incredible Catholic community, gorgeous views, welcoming meeting spaces and so much more. Dedicated to leading teens closer to Christ, we hope you'll be welcomed home to Hidden Lake soon.
There are many women who are a vital part of salvation history and their stories are critical parts of Sacred Scripture. This scriptural devotion will inspire young women to raise their heads along with Mary, Martha, Lydia, and Esther and look into the eyes of Jesus, the God who loves deeply and perfectly.
You are going to make thousands of decisions today and one of them might change your life. Are you confident that what you want and what God want are the same thing? Don’t leave it up to chance - leave it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.
This is your one stop shop for great Catholic books, community, gifts, events, music, and resources. We are here to serve.

Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
As the movement of Life Teen, we are outraged, saddened, and grief-stricken by the horrific deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and too many others, and by the division and violence across our country. We believe that racism is a life issue. It is a disregard for human life and an ongoing danger that must be met directly. As members of the Church, we are called to stand up against injustice so that we might not embrace indifference. As Catholics, we cannot turn our eyes away from these atrocities and still profess to respect human life. We serve a God of love, mercy, and justice. With that comes the responsibility to love, to show mercy, and to seek justice.
We stand committed to continuing this conversation with young people as we believe real change can happen, and that God is still working miracles today. We have previously developed a resource called “At the Table” to help you and your teens discuss this important topic, and we are offering it for free on our website at this time — https://lifeteen.com/cym/resource/at-the-table
We pray for an end to racism, and an end to the violence in the wake of this tragedy. We pray for comfort for grieving families and friends. We pray for peace across the United States. We pray that through these trying days, real change will happen.
Finally, we beg God to heal our deeply flawed views of each other. As Jesus said, “By this, everyone will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). Let us love one another.
Mother Mary, Pray for us!

We have made the decision to kick off summer camps at Covecrest and Hidden Lake only on July 6th!
The health and safety of our campers is our #1 priority. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we think it is important that you understand our efforts to manage your campers’ health and safety so that you can make an informed decision. Life Teen is focusing on ensuring that we are complying with all summer camp guidelines set forth by the state of GA, as well as taking all reasonable measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in our camps.
How did we reach this decision?

So, how do we avoid “abandoning ourselves to despair,” especially in this time of celebrating Christ’s resurrection? How can we truly live the Christian message of joy every day when there are so many things to be sad about?

It’s no coincidence for us as Catholics that this trying time comes during our season of Lent. We gave God our hearts on Ash Wednesday, asking Him to purify us of our worldly desires. We gave up cookies, or maybe social media, gossip, or TV. Did we intend to give up everything else COVID has thrown on there? ...probably not. But it’s here. And it’s out of our control. So what do we do about it?

While abstaining from public Mass is an enormous loss —- our ability to participate digitally (in this 21st century age of Live Streaming and video recording) is a huge gain.
