For Jr. and Sr. High Youth Groups


The Youth Summit program serves youth groups by providing a time away from the daily routines of school, sports, and other activities and immersing them in God’s beautiful Creation at Camp Susque. Students will have opportunities to learn, worship, and fellowship within their own youth group as well as with students from other churches. Students will sleep in our year-round lodges, eat in our Dining Hall, and participate in many activities found in our traditional Summer and Winter Camp Programs.

Primary care of students will be the responsibility of youth leaders and chaperones from your church. Camp Susque staff will lead activities, chapel, and provide meals.


Each Youth Summit will have a chaplain whose role will be to teach biblically sound messages while challenging and inspiring campers to seek after Christ and pursue godly lifestyles. Our chaplains come from a variety of denominations but are unified in their understanding of the Gospel and are in alignment with Susque’s beliefs and statement of faith. Chaplains are invited by the Executive Director based off of personal interactions and recommendations from trusted sources. Like all staff on camp, background checks are collected for chaplains and they receive an orientation on our various systems and processes regarding camper and staff safety.


Youth Summit will give students and youth leaders the opportunity to “make their own adventure.” Throughout the day there will be times for students to choose from a variety of traditional camp activities such as field games, going on a hike, volleyball, climbing wall, or sitting by the fireplace with friends. All activities will be supervised by a Camp Susque staff member or designated youth leader.
