Summit reflection video for Easter Sunday in Lent with Joel Stepanek.
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.
The Steubenville Youth Conferences, an outreach of Franciscan University of Steubenville, are a series of 24 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Each summer, Life Teen hosts several Steubenville Youth Conferences with the hopes of strengthening and inspiring teens and youth groups in their collective journeys to Christ.
Life Teen’s Catholic Youth Ministry Convention has become America’s premier event for everyone involved in parish youth ministry. Why? Maybe it’s because we are different. We believe in practical, comprehensive youth ministry training. But we don’t think that’s enough. That’s why we incorporate elements of a spiritual retreat into the training convention. Because youth ministry isn’t about what you know, it’s Who you know.
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.

In addition to providing meeting spaces, meals, sleeping quarters, and moderated activities, the community at Hidden Lake is ready to help make your retreat a success.
Our main desire as Hidden Lake is to love. No matter who comes through our door we try to do everything possible to make you feel welcomed and loved. When you arrive we greet you with a “welcome home” and we mean it. This is your home and we want to do everything we can to make it feel like home for you.
Our service on retreats can include many things:
We assign missionaries to each group that comes to Hidden Lake based on what roles they would like the missionaries to perform. If you would like some extra small group leaders, we’re on it. If your worship singer had to back out at the last second, leave it to us. Whatever you want help with, our goal is to provide whatever a youth minister or retreat coordinator needs to help their retreat run smoothly. We will prepare for your arrival by making sure rooms are blessed and praying for your teens by name before the Blessed Sacrament. It is our joy to serve you.
At Hidden Lake, we have a Staff member assigned to be Guest Master for every weekend. This Guest Master will ensure everything you need will be provided to the best of our abilities. The Guest Master is your “go-to” person for any logistical needs such as: meal times/changes, liturgical needs, or if you in the chaos of getting ready for a retreat just forgot something at the church, our Guest Master will try to get it for you.
Our Hidden Lake staff is available to you 24/7 in case of emergency. If you need something, let us know!
Our largest space, the Meeting Hall, is fully equipped for your music ministry and media presentations. You bring the instruments and your laptop, and all you have to do is plug in and get started. If you need technical help, we’re here for that too.
We also have A/V for our chapel, and we have portable A/V equipment that can be checked out for other meeting spaces.
