We're Glad You're Here

Since 2006, we have been blessed with having volunteer leaders from the area spend hundreds of hours every year building relationships with high school students.  We currently have Young Life at Camdenton High School, but are interested in pursuing ministry within other high schools and middle schools within the area.

Young Life leaders each week go to the high school to meet the students. Volunteers can be found in the lunch room, at practices or games, at the skate park or anywhere a high school kid is found.  Young Life is about adults "going where kids are" and "earning the right to be heard." 
I want to personally invite you to check us out and how it is impacting high school students in Camdenton.  If you want to know more about getting involved or starting Young Life in another school, check out the area contact information on the left. 
I hope you found this information helpful and would love to hear from you as we continue to reach our goal of reaching every kid, everywhere, for eternity.

For Every Kid, 

Adam Van Dam
Area Director
"Young Life is like a family to me.  It takes all independent groups and allows us to come together and be one.  It allows us to grow deeper in our faith and build new relationships with other high sc​​​​hoolers." - Alex 
"Young Life means to me:  That I was made for this.  I was made for all the clubs, I was made for all the crazy jumping around yelling, I was made for all the soul searching, I was made for all the tears, I was made for all the friendships, but I was especially made to find my way to God." - Bri
"Young Life is the one thing that I am involved with where I can be my completely crazy self and I have no worries.  It means everything to me and it has a really big impact on my life."                                                                 - Courtney 
"Young Life to me is a place where kids can go to learn about God and His love for you while having a blast doing it!"- Anthony
"Young Life is a place for teens to have a blast without all the partying.  Some come already as a believer in Jesus, and some don't but either way, no matter who you are - you are loved.  It's not a place where you are forced to believe but if you are ready to take that step, the leaders are there to help you." - Dennis

Each year, there are many students who simply cannot afford or raise all of the funds necessary to attend camp!  You can give the gift of Camp to a student in our area by ​going to our Giving Website​ and clicking on Camp Scholarship.  All of that money is set aside specifically to help our teens experience a week away from technology and other influences.  It is easily described as the BEST WEEK OF THEIR LIVES.  Thank you!​​
