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.
Empower Core Member Trainings are back! We want to equip youth ministers and core members with the tools and techniques that their ministry needs to not just survive, but to thrive. With a focus on team building along with practical training for the current youth ministry landscape, these trainings are designed to set you up for success.
We’ve crafted an entire weekend with the sole focus of helping you start solid youth ministry in your parish! We’ll be walking through the essential components for launching or revitalizing youth ministry. You can expect to receive a systematic, comprehensive introduction to quality youth ministry along with the practical steps to make it happen. And, because youth ministry flows to and from the sacraments, this training won't just be about the logistics of ministry, but will also provide you an opportunity to renew your own relationship with Christ.
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.

Camp Hidden Lake // December 17 - 20, 2021
He takes away every branch in me that does not bear fruit, and every one that does he prunes so that it bears more fruit.
The Lord desires more fruitfulness for you- it's not always about rooting out sin or about doing more for the Lord. Praise and worship, prayer teams, dynamic talks, reconciliation and spiritual direction are what make john 15 the #bestretreatever
Remain in me as I remain in you. Just as a branch cannot bear fruit on its own unless it remains on the vine, so neither can you unless you remain in me.
Without Him you can do nothing; so what have you been doing without Him? Spend four days remembering how to surrender self-reliance and independence. Reconnect and recommit to the Lord and to the community you’ve found in summer missions.
By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples.
Remember how to love because you have been so loved. Remember how to forgive because you have been so forgiven. Remember how to give because you have received. Discipleship is the fruit that lasts beyond our time as a summer missionary. Remember how to create disciples because you have been one.
