Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Event IV

June 27-30, 2019



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. 

Lake Junaluska Summer Youth Events draw diverse youth groups from multiple states. The events are large enough to be lively and exciting, while never so big that youth feel lost or anonymous. Our prayer is that each participant feels seen and known by Lake Junaluska’s youth ministry staff, small group and workshop leaders, other youth and most importantly by God. 

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

Illusionist: Joshua Lozoff

Joshua Lozoff has been studying and sharing magic around the world for twenty years. His motto is “Life is Magic,” and he walks his talk by performing everywhere from penthouse suites to the streets of Guatemala City. Recently, Joshua had the honor of being one of only two magicians to receive an invitation to perform at the World’s Fair in Japan. He spent two weeks as a featured performer for the USA Pavilion, entertaining Fair visitors from around the globe.

Joshua loves sharing his craft with people in every setting, and his love and respect for magic comes across in every performance. A few moments spent with Joshua can truly inspire, amaze and entertain.
