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.

Life Teen believes deeply in the power and grace of the Sacraments, and our camps are covered in them.

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.

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.
