Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events



Each of these youth group events offers morning and evening sessions with high energy worship, guest preachers and workshops! Events are led by a team of college students, guest speakers, and worship bands. The program is geared towards 6th through 12th graders.

Afternoons are free for groups to plan rafting trips, do mission work or enjoy the swimming pool or boats at Lake Junaluska. 


Meet our youth staff!

Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events


"When Jesus got into the boat, His disciples followed him." 

Matthew 8:23

Jesus tells His disciples, “Get on the boat!” Once on board, He teaches them, calms their fears, and launches them into mission. It’s no surprise the Church is symbolized by a boat and sail. Miracles happen when we get on board with Jesus. Come to Lake Junaluska this summer, and find your spot on His crew!

During your time at the Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events, your group may choose to add on a mission work experience. We partner with Asheville Youth Mission to provide a meaningful and impactful mission experience. Each afternoon of the Summer Youth Events is free for groups to plan their own activities.

Workshops offered during the Summer Youth Events at Lake Junaluska

NEW! Workshops Added to the Summer Youth Events

This year we have added a morning workshop time of spiritual formation activities which will vary from event to event.  Example activities may include choir, a prayer walk, gardening in our Biblical garden, liturgical dance, worship leadership, onsite mission projects and more!

Youth will sign up for a workshop when they arrive at Lake Junaluska. Pre-registration is not required.

Ziplining is available during the Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events

Adventure Add-Ons

The Summer Youth Events are unique in that the afternoons are free for whatever activity your group thinks is the best fit! We offer mission work opportunities and onsite recreation, but groups also have the option to go off-property and visit nearby attractions. Whether that's a trip to Biltmore Estate, wildwater rafting, ziplining or visiting Asheville's Fun Depot, we've got you covered.

Call 800-222-4930 to learn more about how to add these activities to your Summer Youth Event experience! 



We are thrilled to announce Lake Junaluska has recently received more than $400,000 in charitable donations for renovations and improvements to youth and young adult housing facilities. This is part of a revitalization of our programs for youth and young adults.The first round of upgrades will begin this spring and summer in Mountainview and the Lake Junaluska Apartments—the two lodging buildings most often used by youth.
