This spiritual formation event, in the beautiful North Carolina mountains, offers morning and evening sessions focused on being the body of Christ through service, worship, and community. During the summer of 2014, youth packaged 50,000 meals for hungry people, partnering with Stop Hunger Now and raised over $10,000 for this amazing mission. The 2015 mission is in the works and will be announced soon. Events are led by a team of college students, guest speakers, and worship bands. Afternoons are free for groups to plan additional service projects, rafting trips, or to enjoy the swimming pool or boats at Lake Junaluska. The program is geared towards 6th through 12th graders.
