Lift U

Lift U

July 28–August 1, 2024

LiftU is 5 days of spiritual transformation and fellowship that is designed to challenge, renew, and empower college-age young adults in growing the kingdom of God by equipping them with knowledge and conviction. We have been very excited to see the success of this week of camp and look forward to watching it grow.  Come and be part of a camp that is especially designed for our young adults 18-25 years old.

Join Christians from student centers across the Southeast, including Texas, Alabama, Mississippi, Florida, Arkansas, Louisiana, and Tennessee. Anyone who has recently graduated high school and is in the college age range is invited to join us. You do not have to be currently enrolled at a school to attend. 

Is this a college camp?

No. LIFT U is not simply a camp for college students but a unique experience designed to address the varying topics you encounter in the college-age life stage. There will be time devoted to personal growth through a focus on prayer, quiet time with the Scriptures and small groups, group worship, and plenty of downtime to connect with old friends and make new ones. We’ll also throw in games and competitions to keep things interesting.

Join us!

Maywood is a beautiful place with lots of space to spread out and connect with God. We plan to utilize this unique setting to maximize our time together. We will have speakers and small group discussion leaders gifted in connecting with college students, challenging you to grow deeper in your walk with God.

  • When do we leave? Lift U ends on Thursday morning. Our goal is to have everyone on the road by 10:30 AM!
  • What if I can’t be there every day? We understand schedules are busy. Don’t be discouraged from coming even if it’s just for a few days. Just let us know when you register or check in. 
  • Can I come to visit? Visitors are always welcome. It’s more fun to stay for the week though!
  • What’s the daily schedule? Breakfast runs from 8:30–9:30 and the rest of our morning includes two Bible classes. After lunch (12:30–1:30), there’s a large block of free time for games, naps, kayaking, biking, ropes course, swimming, fishing, disc golf, beach volleyball, pickleball, etc.! In the evening, we have dinner at 5:30 followed by worship (6:45 pm), an evening activity, and small group discussion time.
