Teen Testimony from Life Teen Summer Camp:

There are so many reasons why I loved camp. One, is the community that we built. Our CTK group got so close and we were able to be so vulnerable with each other. We shared so many laughs and created priceless memories on that trip. Two, camp was so much fun every day. We did the ropes courses and zip lining and white water rafting. We went to the waterfall and swam in the lake. It was a blast! And finally, most importantly, my faith grew tremendously. I actually loved going to mass there. We had mass outside in front of the lake and mass on top of the mountain. The sessions were powerful, but not overwhelming and we had amazing missionaries to break down the talks with. God is present always, but you will feel him in exceptional ways at Covecrest over that week at camp. Every teen should experience camp because you will be transformed. Your faith will ignite and you will never forget the memories you make there. Covecrest will feel like home, come home.

Why Life Teen Summer Camp?

Want to have fun up in the air? From zip lines, to rock walls, to leaps of faith, the challenge ropes courses are designed for personal and team growth where teens can learn to overcome personal fears.

You haven’t truly lived until you’ve gotten messy at LT Summer Camp. Every year there are bigger and better messier games, obstacle courses, and amazing white water rafting that will keep you on your toes.

With plenty of free time, you’ll also have the chance to choose your fun. Why not play the most epic game of soccer ever? Feel like being creative? There’s an Art Barn where you can create art, play music, and more. Or hop in the lake & keep the water activities going!
