AWAKEN Youth Summer Camp
This year, we are going to be hosting a week-long youth summer camp from August 19-23!
Our theme this year is AWAKEN – and all week long we are going to be diving into some of the biggest questions youth have about faith and spiritual disciplines. Each day, we will cover one of the major spiritual disciplines (prayer, worship, etc.) and talk about why that spiritual discipline is so important and what are some practical strategies we can use to make that practice a bigger part of our daily lives. The big question we will be aiming to tackle throughout the entire week is what does it really mean to live AWAKE to God and His purposes for us, and every day there will a time of teaching and group discussion for us to dive into that question, encourage each other, and take time to pray and worship God together.
In addition to the amazing stuff we will be learning about God, there will also be tons of cool activities going on all week, including EPIC team games and challenges every day (think escape rooms, obstacle courses, relay races, and other huge group games!), road trips to some FUN destinations in Kamloops (like Cliffside Climbing Gym and Riverside Park), and a trip to Vancouver and Cultus Lake Water Slides on Thursday and Friday. It is going to be our biggest and best youth camp yet, and we already have over 30 people signed up!
The cost for the camp is only $75 for the whole week, and that includes all gas and travel costs, as well as breakfast, lunch, and dinner for every day. That means you won’t even have to bring a lunch, or eat breakfast before coming – we will have food made for you all week!
We would love for you to join us! Registration is officially open, so click the red button to register now! REGISTRATION CLOSES AUGUST 5th SO BE SURE TO REGISTER SOON!

Why Youth Group?
We do this because inside and outside of the Church there are a lot of teens that need to know Jesus. We want to provide a place where the truth and good news of Jesus Christ can be evident not only in word, but also in deed through relationships and serving and loving one another. We are a group where everyone is welcome, no matter the background or where you are in faith in life. We want you here, with us, in a community that loves.
At youth, we seek to develop community around the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want our youth to know and understand that the gospel is what God did for us, not what we do for God. The gospel is the good news that God loves sinners through Jesus Christ’s life, death, and resurrection. That is our focus and the reason why we can love each other so much. It is because we are so loved by God!
