Teen Serve


Welcome to the serving opportunity for Teens at LGYC. Teen Serve members will be spending time worshiping, growing in the community, and of course, serving here at camp. 

Teen Serve is a 3-week training experience at Lake Geneva Youth Camp where teens ages 14-18, serve at camp through foodservice and program support so campers and other volunteers can have a life-changing experience in Christ! Teen Serve participants will work hard during the day and be challenged intellectually at night.  Together, we will explore what it means to follow the real Jesus as disciple-makers.  

Teens will be equipped to return home and serve others in their local church, youth ministry, school, home, and workspace! Come learn what it looks like to serve and build community in Christ. 



Teen Serve 1: June 12th, 2021 – July 2nd, 2022
Teen Serve 2: July 5th, 2021 – July 30th, 2022

Teen Serve 1 will be capped at 25 participants.  
Teen Serve 2 will be capped at 25 participants.
