Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events



Each of these youth group events offers morning and evening sessions with high energy worship, guest preachers, mission components, and a focus on giving! 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. 

NEW! Workshops will be part of the Summer Youth Events this year. Check back soon for additional information on workshops!


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

Matthew 8:23

Jesus often 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!


Asheville Youth Mission at Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events

Junaluska-Asheville Youth Mission (JAYM)

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. AYM brings middle and high school youth into the Asheville, N.C. area to work, dig, play, cook, paint, mow, clean, laugh, sweat and MAKE A DIFFERENCE. They use the arts to help JAYM participants work on what God means when God says, “do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with me!”
