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.

This is what every teenager hears the moment they step onto the grounds at a Life Teen Summer Camp. Though we’ve been saying it for years, we simply aren’t just saying it. From your dining room table to the altar at your home parish, we understand the importance of teenagers having a sense of home — a place of belonging and peace and safety. Whether you’re raising a family or building a parish community, we know how much effort you put into creating a physical, emotional, and spiritual place that others can call “home.” Our goal is simple: to be a continuation of that effort — to extend your home’s reach into a teenager’s summer camp experience. We may not know what a teenager’s life is like when they arrive at camp but no matter their questions, doubts, or struggles they may be working through, they are always welcome. This is their home, away from home.
Quarantines and lockdowns, online learning and zoom calls … 2020 has been a challenge to say the least. For so many huddled at home, brightened screens flash and flicker before our teens’ eyes throughout the day — every day. At camp, your middle school and high school teens will get away from Zoom and find a new home in nature. Fresh mountain air, open fields, lakes, ponds, and summer night skies filled with stars will remind them of all this world has to offer. Creation will point them back to the Creator as they break free from technology and quarantines and experience the freedom and beauty of nature.
