What is Camp Revive?

Camp Revive is the Junior High and High School Winter Camp hosted by Lakeside Bible Church for youth ministries across Texas. Each year we join together at Camp Tejas in Giddings, Texas for powerful expository preaching, Christ-centered music, small-group discipleship, fun outdoor activities, epic team games, and tons of purposeful fellowship! We handle all of the camp administration so your church can focus solely on investing in the lives of your students. The ultimate goal of Camp Revive is to see students come to salvation in Jesus Christ and grow in the knowledge of Him. Each year we see God accomplish mighty things for His glory.

To facilitate this, Lakeside invites faithful expositors to preach the Word of God to those attending camp. These speakers bring the life-changing truths of Scripture in a way that is relatable to those in junior high and high school where they are in life. We certainly believe that you do not have to sacrifice fun in order to have sound, biblical teaching, so we load up the weekend with exciting team games designed to make some life-long memories! It will be a packed weekend, loaded with fun as we look to Jesus Christ the author and perfecter of our salvation. Your students will not want to miss it!
