YOUTH WEEKS

  A SIMPLY, POWERFUL EXPERIENCE 

REFRESHINGLY DIFFERENT

There is no simple way to fully capture what a 4-5 day youth week at Uplift is like for your youth group.  It is not the typical "camp" experience and is not for everyone.

INTENTIONAL AND PURPOSEFUL

Your investment to encourage teens to follow Jesus is an important one.  Your time at Uplift will be spent in meaningful activities and powerful potentials.  We want you to have a significant shared experience with your students.  One that you can build on for months and years to come.

ACTIVE AND ENCOURAGING

Our expectations are high and the encouragement and needed guidance are in place to help students participate in things they might otherwise shy away from.  We are focused on activities and adventures but non athletes will find that the entry points and levels of expectation are both doable and appropriate.

A TYPICAL DAY 

Mornings start with a 7:30 breakfast and after a morning devotional we are headed out for an activity until lunch.  Afternoons are spent in more adventures.  At 4:30 or so we gather for a workout to end the active part of our day.  There is ample time to clean up or fit in a round of disc golf before a 6:30 dinner.  Our evenings are spent in the chapel with a time of challenge from the Bible (you can do the teaching or Dean can do some or all of your sessions).  After service begins a quieter time of visiting the snack shop and playing games or having fellowship in the lodge.  Lights out at 10 or 10:30 brings a big, meaningful day at Uplift to a close.
