Are suits and ties or skirts and heels not quite your thing? TeenPact Survival may be for you. The conditions of each location are rustic and the entire event is spent outdoors. Sessions are held under a tent, cooking is done outdoors, and there is plenty of physical activity. You will be challenged to go beyond just surviving and learn to thrive in Christ.

TeenPact Survival continually gets some of the highest reviews of all our alumni programs. It teaches teamwork and spiritual growth. Working alongside your team, you will prepare meals and compete in various team-related competitions. Great messages and a week of living immersed in God’s Word and the beauty of nature combine for a powerful experience.

Highlights include TeenPact worship, group debrief time, ultimate Frisbee, and shooting sports. Activities at Survival are fun but purposeful. Using a hands-on approach, students are encouraged to apply lessons to their personal lives.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend, as they enrich the spiritual depth of the week. Parental involvement is voluntary: come to watch and learn, serve alongside our staff, or even contact us prior to the event with outdoor skills (medical training, shooting qualifications, survival training, etc.) that can be shared with the group.
