Incredible Ministry Opportunities
Laity Lodge Youth Camp a Christian Summer Camp in TexasIf you are looking for a summer job that will change your life and the lives of others, we have an opportunity for you. Laity Lodge Youth Camp is an incredible place to serve God, love others, and enjoy life. If you are interested in being challenged, encouraged, stretched, inspired, motivated, and transformed, this is the place for you.
We are looking for young, passionate men and women who want to use their summer to impact God’s kingdom by impacting young lives. LLYC provides a platform for you to share your life with others. We work to create a unique environment where relationships grow deep, God’s love is shown, and His truth rings loud. As you get a front-row seat to watch lives being changed in the name of Christ, you will build lifelong friendships, make sweet memories, be stretched and grown in new ways, receive personal fulfillment of being part of something great, and so much more.
The LLYC Experience
The atmosphere of LLYC is like no other. We are located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, where our 1,900-acre playground clearly displays God’s handiwork. From our spontaneous program to our intentional discipleship, we create an environment where God’s love is on full display in the context of relational ministry.
From a shaving cream fight . . . to a late night Rodeo Dance . . . to jumping off a cliff into the Frio River . . . from an ice cream gutter sundae . . . to a crazy game of ultimate Frisbee . . . to having the opportunity to sit with a camper and tell them how much Jesus loves them—enough to die for them . . . LLYC is an incredible, life-changing way to spend your summer. We are confident you will leave the gates of LLYC different than when you came.
