Middle School Youth Ministry




 
 
What it is: Summer Festival is not just an insanely fun summer camp (though we can't overstate how fun it is) - the camp also features some of the best Christian speakers and music in the country! We stay on Gustavus' college campus (enjoying their award-winning food), and every day includes awesome worship, great morning and evening speakers, some of the best small group discussions you'll find anywhere, and a TON of crazy camp games (like huge water fights, a 4-story water slide, campus-wide night games, hilarious improv and skits, and the spectacular "Messy Fight"). If you have more questions, check the FAQ here. Seriously, this will be the best week of your year!
Middle School Camp Date/Time: July 13-16 (Thurs. afternoon - Sun. afternoon)
Location: Gustavus College
To Register: Click Here or hit the button below! Registration is $315 for students, register by Wednesday, June 21.

 
 






 
What it is: Summer Stretch is an awesome 5-week program for middle school and high school students. Every Wednesday (and a Thursday) for 4 weeks, we meet as a large group to do service together, pray and laugh together, and spend our afternoons at great "fun sites" like Grand Slam, Bunker Beach, the zoo and of course, the final full-day at Valley Fair! It's a good mix of faith and fun, no matter your age. Middle schoolers are participants, high schoolers get to help lead. So have some fun and get some sun, while earning service and leadership experience!
Date/Time: Wednesdays, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM
Program Dates are: June 28, July 19, July 26, Aug. 2, Aug. 9
Location: Meet at St. O's each morning - then we provide transportation to the offsite service and fun sites
To Register: Register Middle schoolers by Wednesday, June 21.

         




What it is: VBS After Hours is a brand-new program for middle school and high school teens, and it takes place directly after the morning part of VBS ends! After Hours is a complement to the existing VBS experience - but instead of the teens leading a younger grade, VBS After Hours is designed directly for the middle school and high schoolers. We focus each day on two main goals: having as much crazy, memorable fun as possible, and developing the next generation of Christian Leaders!
PLAY! / GROW!LEAD!
 
Date/Time: July 24-27 (Mon - Thurs) 12:30 - 5:00 PM
Location: St. Odilia main building
To Register: Register below! Registration includes full-week option and per-day option (including the Wednesday offsite fun day!).





 

What it is: Emmaus Nights are not a class, youth group, or source of entertainment, but an ongoing retreat experience! There are aspects of our retreats that really resonate with the teens, and we aimed to translate those elements to a weekly opportunity. We want teens at Emmaus to encounter God, have time to relax, talk about faith or life, and form deep and meaningful relationships.
 
For Emmaus Summer, we start with a super fun, active game that gets kids laughing, competing, and working together as teams in anything from "Slip-n-Slide Kickball" to a "Hunger Games" competition. After a good hour and a half running around and making crazy memories, we move into the more traditional part of an Emmaus Night schedule. That means authentic fellowship and sharing in small groups the students choose for themselves. Followed by a short story about Jesus, and time in prayer with worship music!
 
Date/Time: SUMMER SCHEDULE: Sundays, 6:00 - 9:00 PM
2017 Summer Dates: June 4, June 25, July 23, July 30, Aug. 6, Aug. 20* Aug. 27

What it is: Faith Spark is St. Odilia's new youth ministry program for 6th-9th graders, designed to pump up our youth and inject some excitement into our experience of faith!
With live music, funny videos by our leaders, and high-energy games, these nights are sure to spark some interest in our 6th—9th graders. And the youth-oriented messages will help students take those first steps in their faith! If this is our teens’ first experience with youth ministry, we want it to be an awesome one!
