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 conferences across North America that help teens encounter the love of Christ every summer. Life Teen hosts six 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.
This is your one stop shop for great Catholic books, community, gifts, events, music, and resources. We are here to serve.
Edge helps middle schoolers unleash who they were created to be, in Christ.
Life Teen strengthens our teens' Catholic identity, while rooting them firmly in Christ and in His Church.
We know the Life Teen Leadership Conference plays a significant role in the formation of teen leaders for so many parishes. So while we won’t be able to gather in person this summer, we have instead put all the best Life Teen creativity and ingenuity into what we believe will be an amazing virtual hybrid version of the conference!
The Incarnation reminds us that we have a God who meets us where we are at, and we believe this will absolutely be the case as we continue to adapt in response to the unprecedented circumstances in our world and in our Church. The Life Teen Leadership Conference, even digitally, will be a powerful event for high school juniors and seniors.
*Adaptations will be available for parishes who wish to participate but are unable to gather locally in their area at the time of the conference.
This is a live virtual event with interactive elements, so in order to participate, you have to attend the event in real time. The content will not be pre-recorded or available for later viewing.
While it is recommended that you gather your teens in person for the fullest experience of this virtual hybrid event, we do understand that some areas of the country are still facing COVID-19 restrictions and may not be able to gather their teens locally at their parish. Parishes in this situation should set up virtual methods (such as Zoom or Google Hangouts) to journey with their participating teens throughout the event.
We have designed the schedule so that there is a lot of flexibility for individual parishes during the local portions of the event. This way, you have the ability to modify those aspects according to what is pastorally best and logistically feasible for your group!
Unfortunately, this event is not open for individual registration. The only way to participate is to be registered as part of a parish group. We’d be happy to let you know if any parishes from your area are registered. Just email us to ask!
For this event, we recommend parishes register a maximum of 16 teens plus the required chaperones. This event is not designed for an entire youth group, but rather for a smaller, focused group of teen leaders. However, you know your teens and parish best, so we ultimately leave this decision up to you! The minimum group size required is at least three people, made up of one chaperone and two teens.
Unfortunately, we do not have any scholarship funding available for this event.
