You can help change two lives forever!

According to the impact survey, every teen mom who attended camp reported that camp had transformed their liv​es. YoungLives camp is an extraordinary place! Mentors accompany teen moms and their babies to camp for a respite from the chaos of their daily struggles. Being at camp gives new hope to teen moms and their babies as they learn and experience God’s love and saving grace. At camp with their physical and childcare needs met, teen moms are immersed in the love of God and can just be a teenager.


Here are the ways you can help:

  • Your Contribution – the total cost to send the teen moms, their babies, volunteer mentors and leaders to weekend and week long camp is about $36,000.  This includes transportation, housing, childcare and food. The girls are also raising money and asked to pay $50 for weekend and $100 for week long. With your gift, you can remove a barrier between these girls, so they can hear the life changing message of Jesus. All gifts are helpful and appreciated. Your donation is fully tax deductible. Please make your checks out to” YoungLife” and write “FL222 Camp” in the memo line. Gifts can be mailed to Jacksonville YoungLives, P.O. Box 2173, Jacksonville, FL 32203. Or, click the link at the top of the page to give online!

  • Pray – Prayer is a vital part of any camp experience. We know only the work of the Holy Spirit can change lives, so we need an army of people to pray for while we are at camp. Please pray that God will smooth the way for these teen moms and their babies; pray for the relationships between the girls and their mentors, and most importantly that they will see the need for a relationship with Christ.  A relationship with Jesus transforms everything about a person – how they view themselves, their family, their friends and their world.  Please pray for our girls….that they can be the beginning of change in their families.
  • Volunteer As Childcare - Come experience this life changing mission first hand. Serve as a childcare volunteer at a YoungLives camp at weekend or week long. If you would like to serve in this way please contact Jordan Whitmarsh at
