Experience Life

We are created for great things. We are meant to live with a joy that penetrates the darkness of this world. We desire more from our relationships and experiences. We want to live a bold life. We crave a love that will never leave us. We are meant to experience life.

Summer camp with Life Teen is an incredible opportunity to bring teens into an incredible experience of life. For over 15 years, Covecrest has provided experiences at summer camp where high school teens are able to be free and confident in themselves, develop new friendships with other teens from your parish and the Diocese, and encounter God working in their lives. This is the summer that you begin to experience a bigger and better life than you ever thought possible.

Lifeteen has crafted an exhilarating, uplifting and powerful week of activities that are designed to help lead teens closer to Christ, and closer to their parish group.

Don’t miss out on the chance to experience freedom through a life-changing summer that will ignite your faith, reinvigorate your parish and fill your heart with the love of God.
