Young Life Adventures is an unforgettable, week-long camp experience designed to help your students grow in their faith, enjoy memorable adventures, and be a part of an intimate community. Adventures is the perfect follow-up experience to their time at Young Life outreach camp, and will help them take the next steps in growing closer to Jesus.
Our camp in Santa Cruz, CA offers our guests the opportunity to try out activities like surfing, sea kayaking, river hiking, and mountain biking with the backdrop of gorgeous California beaches and the majestic redwood forest. When campers try new things physically, our hope is they will step out into their faith in new ways as well—the power of impact through experience.
Our camp in Baja, Mexico sets participants up to make a difference in the world while being a part of a formational discipleship experience. In Baja campers will help build a house for a family, work with local orphans and other children, and do community service projects to help the people of Mexico.
Both Adventures’ locations give campers all they love about YL camp— new friendships, club, cabin times, great food, laughter and fun—within the intimate community Adventures offers.
Join the thousands of people who have said Adventures was their favorite experience with Young Life! We believe your friends’ hearts and lives will be changed forever. Check us out!
What is Young Life Adventures?
We offer discipleship-focused camps for any high schooler ready to grow deeper in their relationship with God. At YLA summer camp, we give teens the opportunity to live in intimate community where they’re known completely and loved unconditionally. We take them on daily adventures including surfing, sea kayaking, bodyboarding, river hiking, mountain biking, and more. Camp provides opportunities for leaders to spend one-on-one time with their high school friends building a lasting relationship. Often the trajectory of teenagers’ lives are changed because of a week spent at camp.
Young Life Adventures is geared for every kid, whether from the inner city or the suburbs, whether athletic or reserved. If teens are willing to be challenged physically, our hope is that they will learn to take the next step in their faith as well. Our deepest hope is that each camper leaves wanting to follow Jesus for life!

We give kids the opportunity to live in intimate community like they’ve never experienced before.
