Teen Serve


Teen Serve

Teen Serve is a serving 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!
