Charge Youth Event 2023

Episcopalians in 6th-9th grades from around our dioceses are invited to join our Lutheran neighbors from Living Water Ministries for a weekend of fellowship, prayer, fun and community at the Great Wolf Lodge in Traverse City.


The first wave of Generation Z is growing into adolescence and many of the children in this generation simply don’t have a grasp on who Jesus is and why he is relevant in their everyday lives. Charge is an event that attempts to bridge this gap by providing a powerful faith community where students can grow in faith, engage in service, and develop leadership skills, all while enjoying the amenities of Great Wolf Lodge. Participants at Charge are equipped and empowered to learn, lead, laugh, and love as an expression of their faith in Jesus. It is our hope that participants depart energized to transform the world in the name of Christ!

Worship, small groups, small group time, workshops, recreation options, and an outdoor campfire camp-style are all elements of this powerful gathering of community!
