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? The good news is that Life Teen has a little something for every teen and every parish.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish. Bring your priest, music minister, new staff or Core Members, and anyone else who is a key player in your ministry! You're guaranteed to walk away from this training plugged in to a vast network of support, knowing that you're not in this alone.

This year at Life Teen Summer Camps, we are excited to offer new and exciting ways to interact with campers during their time at the #BestCampEver!
Family members will now be able to write letters to their campers while they’re away that are electronically processed and hand-delivered to the campers twice a week! Campers will also have the ability to write letters back, which will be delivered straight to the parent’s email!
Also, friends and family members now have the ability to purchase Outpost eGift Cards for campers to use, instead of trying to have them keep track of cash or credit cards. The cards are easy to use and never expire!
For more information on each of these exciting new features, follow the links below!

This is the summer that you begin to experience a bigger and better life than you ever thought possible.

Want to have fun 30 feet up in the air? From zip lines, to rock walls, to leaps of faith, our challenge ropes courses are designed for personal and team growth where individuals can learn to overcome personal fears and challenges while relying on their friends for help. Our teams of highly trained individuals will make sure you’re safe and having a blast while enjoying our top-notch ropes courses.
You haven’t truly lived until you’ve gotten messy at Covecrest, Hidden Lake or Golden State. Every year we cook up bigger and better messy games and obstacle courses that will keep you on your toes. A true summer camp staple, the muddier you get, the more fun you’ll have!
With plenty of free time throughout the week, Edge and Life Teen camps offer you the chance to choose your fun. Why not play the biggest and most epic game of soccer, ultimate frisbee or Flicker Ball that you can imagine? Feel like being creative? We’ve got an Art Barn for you to make crafts, play music, and much more. With lakes at all three summer camps, we’ve also got plenty of water activities to keep the fun going!
Life Teen believes deeply in the power and grace of the Sacraments, and our camps are covered in them. We provide a multitude of opportunities to experience God through the Sacraments, including daily Mass, confession every morning and night, and Eucharistic Adoration. Our desire is for every teen to leave camp with a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ.
At any given week of Life Teen summer camp, you’ll find some of the best and brightest speakers and musicians in Catholic youth ministry. Teens will hear powerful talks from relatable, funny, and challenging hosts, along with prayerful and engaging praise and worship music from music ministers. Every session is crafted to assist teens in examining their lives and growing in their faith.
Camp provides the space for everyone, and we mean everyone, to develop a deeper and more meaningful prayer life. With a balance of group reflections, guided prayer activities and silent personal meditations, we create enough space for every teen to dive into a rhythm of prayer that is ready for them to carry over into their daily lives.
Life Teen summer camp is a great place for parishes to grow together in faith and unity. No teen can come to camp by themselves; we’re committed to building up parishes through designating intentional time together, investing in youth ministers and empowering core members. Parishes will arrive as a group, and leave as a family.
If you’ve ever felt like you’re alone in your faith, summer camp is the perfect place for you to realize you’re not! Teens will be able to meet and share with hundreds of other campers from around the country while journeying alongside their parish friends throughout the week. Countless friendships will be created and strengthened by the end of camp.
Being a teenager can be hard. There’s so much pressure to fit in or act and look a certain way. Camp makes it easy to be yourself and let down any walls that were built up during the school year. When you experience the amount of fun, faith, and fellowship offered at a Life Teen summer camp, it’s almost impossible to not leave with a happier heart.
