CAMP COVECREST 2023
WHEN IS COVECREST?
MAY 29 - JUNE 3, 2023
We are attending Week 1 of Camp Covecrest! This year we are flying with Southwest, so our trip will begin with our flights early on Monday, May 29th. We will fly back Saturday evening, June 3rd to Texas.
WHAT IS COVECREST ALL ABOUT?
Summer camp at Covecrest is an incredible opportunity to bring teens into an unforgettable experience of life. For over 15 years, Life Teen has provided experiences at summer camp where our high school teens are able to be free and confident in themselves, develop new friendships with other teens from our parish, and encounter God working in their lives. Their week at Covecrest includes inspiring talks, powerful encounters with God through the Sacraments, and fantastic activities such as high ropes, white water rafting, and messy games! This can be the summer that your teen begins to experience a bigger and better life than they ever thought possible!
WHO COMES TO CAMP?
Life Teen camp is for high school teens, those teens entering 9th grade in Fall 2023 to those who will have graduated in the Spring of 2023. There will be adult chaperones at a ratio of 1:8 gender specific.
WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR ADULT CHAPERONES?
All adult chaperones must be 21+ years old and be safe environment trained and background checked in our diocese. We ask our dedicated Core Members to join us on this trip to continue the mentoring that has been happening throughout the year. Our desire is that they fully participate and journey alongside campers all week long. The relationships built at camp will help teens feel supported in their faith journey going home.
WHAT EXACTLY HAPPENS AT CAMP?
The Life Teen Summer Camps staff plans, prepares, and facilitates the programming, liturgies and activities for each day. Each day you’ll experience daily Mass, opportunities for the Sacrament of Reconciliation, and other powerful prayer experiences. Our evening sessions, led by a dynamic speaker, will break open scriptural topics to lead your teens into a more authentic encounter with Christ. All of this alongside our exciting ropes courses, an obstacle course, messy games, plenty of free time and much more. Each day campers will enjoy three delicious meals and a night-time snack with their parish.
