Every summer, thousands of high school and middle school students come to Timber Wolf Lake for a week of adventure, fun and a chance to consider a relationship with God. All of this takes place in the breathtaking landscape of northern Michigan’s rolling hills and dense forests!

Coming from every area around the country with their local Young Life groups and leaders, students get to know one another, eat great food, and laugh a lot. They meet new people from around the country, try new activities, step out of their comfort zones and hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ presented in a way teens can understand.
