Evening Sessions are an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing Students to combine the academic emphasis in class with a spiritual focus on their relationships with God and one another. We often like to say, “TeenPact is so much more than what happens at the capitol!” Parents are invited as well.

 

Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay and observe the Four Day class. We love having parents learning right alongside their Student! If you’re unable to stay for the class, please join us for graduation on Thursday beginning at 1:00 p.m. During graduation, Students participate in a short mock legislative session, hear speeches from the elected officials, hear a charge from the Program Director, receive graduation certificates and much more!

Camp

January 24-28, 2022

Students are invited to stay with the staff at Deer Run Retreat, south of downtown Nashville. Staying at Deer Run gives Students the opportunity to relax and fellowship with like-minded peers in a more casual environment. Students play games, participate in small groups, play Ultimate Frisbee, enjoy a time of worship, and are challenged by a message from the Class Director. Time at Deer Run is an integral part of the TeenPact experience, allowing Students to combine the academic emphasis of the class with a spiritual focus on their relationships with God and one another.

 

Students and Chaperones stay in modern cabins with separate facilities for guys and girls. Lodging, transportation, and meals are included in the residential camp fee of $195 for three nights or $240 for four nights. We encourage parents to come and enjoy the week as Chaperones and assist with student transportation at a discounted rate of $140 for three nights or $180 for four nights. To reserve your slot at the camp, please register online.

 

Students or parents with dietary restrictions should email tennessee@teenpact.com with specific information. There is a $2 per meal surcharge for special requests, but the camp is most helpful in making sure each person has plenty of food he/she can eat for each meal.

Please use luggage tags, strips of masking or duct tape with your name written in permanent marker. You may also attach labels to ribbons or yarn and safety pin them to your items.

Are you looking for an opportunity to invest in the next generation and make some great new friends along the way? Join us as a Chaperone for TeenPact Leadership Schools! You are invited to assist us with carrying out our goal of raising gospel-centered leaders. As a Chaperone, you have many responsibilities, including staying in the room with a group of Students, assisting with Student transportation each day, and having the opportunity to observe or participate in aspects of the class, including Prayer Walks, TeenPact Legislature, and Evening Sessions. You may be asked to assist with preparing and distributing meals and snacks during lunch and Coffeehouse. You are also welcome to join the Students for Rendezvous or have a separate Chaperone Rendezvous, which is an amazing time to pour into the Students spiritually and be blessed yourself. You will be surprised by how much you personally receive through this week of service. Because you will be on site, you will be able to have the full TeenPact experience alongside your Student, seeing first-hand how God uses the ministry to change lives. 

 

If you would like to join us, we would love you to register. As with many ministry opportunities there is a cost to serve. TeenPact invites parents to serve as Chaperones for $140 for three nights or $180 for four nights. This registration fee covers your housing and meals for the week.
