What are you doing this summer?

WE INVITE YOU TO COME TO AWAKENING TEEN CAMPS

Jesus loves teenagers. Awakening Teen Camps exists to see a generation awakened to the glory of Jesus Christ. We are joyfully committed to connecting young people to a genuine relationship with the Lord. We believe that the Christian walk is one that flows from wholehearted love empowered by the Holy Spirit. You are invited to join us this summer as we pursue the heart of Jesus!

Our engaged staff excitedly devotes their summers to pouring into the next generation while making lifelong memories. Awakening Teen Camps is full of high-energy games, biblical teaching, instructive workshops, relational small group times, and powerful evening services.

Our camps are all-inclusive, providing teens with quality meals, housing facilities for out-of-town guests, activities, and an outstanding staff.

We desire to see teens encounter Jesus in a way that impacts them for the rest of their lives. Come and be awakened to the joy of knowing and loving Jesus, as you connect with like-minded friends!

All skill levels are welcome; however, ATC Worship Academy does not provide traditional music lessons.

High School Impact & Leadership Camp
