Life is busy. With the beginning of a new school year is just around the corner, are you overwhelmed by the changes on the horizon with new classes, responsibilities and expectations? Do you feel ready? Or like you still have more questions than you have answers?


Join us this fall, as we venture into the woods together at TeenPact Survival to step away from all the distractions of life and focus on what matters most. Through the week, you’ll become more grounded in your identity as a follower of Christ as you see God’s glory in creation and study God’s Word. And you will walk away with a better understanding of how God sustains everything in the world, and how he is even sustaining you. Knowing these truths will give you the strength and peace to take on all the challenges of this coming year — and the rest of your life.


Survival is an all-out adventure you won’t want to miss. Experience the team building challenges, the worship under the stars, the tasty meals cooked over a fire together, the hiking to amazing views, and growing friendships as we bond together at Survival!


Survival is about being prepared. Through hands-on, team-based experiences, you’ll learn how to avoid these situations by having a comprehensive skill set and an adaptable strategy to survive. It’s about having the know-how to get yourself and your friends out of a survival situation successfully. It’s about thinking outside the box and utilizing your resources. It’s about solidifying the fact that God is our peace and source of our strength and that we can survive only through recognizing and focusing on Christ as our Sustainer.


Consider one of the following amazing locations where you will learn to survive!



September 9-14, 2018 

We will be in South Dakota again in the beautiful Black Hills. We will get to see Mt. Rushmore, hike in the splendor of the mountains there, be refreshed with quiet times near the lake and restored as we worship God together in His creation.



October 7-12, 2018 

We are going to experience a new location in the Blue Ridge Mountains this year! In Brevard, North Carolina (just south of Asheville), we will be staying at an amazing camp with over 700 acres to explore including a hike to a waterfall! Our cabins are by a river and set deep into the woods. Come and share this amazing new location with us!



October 19-25, 2018 

We also would like to invite you to come to our new ASAP location this year. For advanced adventure, join us in Alabama this year as we camp together in shelters we build, cook crazy meals, run the obstacle course multiple times as teams, experience climbing and rappelling, and studying of God’s word and worship in the woods together in this new location that provides some exciting new experiences!
