Teen Serve

A New Way to Serve

Teen Serve

Teen Serve is a 3-week experience at Lake Geneva Youth Camp where teens, ages 14-18, serve our campers through food service and program support so campers and other volunteers can have a life-changing experience in Christ! Teens will get their hands dirty during the day and be challenged intellectually at night.  Together we will explore what it means to follow the real Jesus as disciple-makers. Not only will teens learn what it looks like to serve and disciple like Jesus, but they will also build an incredible community to create memories and friendships for a lifetime!

Teen Serve space is limited.

Cost: $299

Teen Serve 1: June 12th, 2022 – July 2nd, 2022
Teen Serve 2: July 5th, 2022 – July 30th, 2022

Both sessions have 26 slots available.
