Young People in Mission at Lake Junaluska

June 29–July 3, 2014

Young People in Mission is a camp experience with hands-on mission opportunities for youth and young adults between the ages of 12 and 24. Our hope is that this event will serve as a launch to empower them to serve with new eyes and a heart for justice. Each year, young people serve with local mission projects, worship together, fellowship and grow with family groups, dive into bible studies, and learn from featured speakers and the City of Opportunity.
