"I enjoyed the whole K-team experience and learned a lot about God, but wish it was longer."

What does it cost?

The cost is $350 per participant (youth and leaders). Upon registration there is a $350 non-refundable deposit, this is counted towards the total cost. This cost covers room and board for the week, a T-shirt, supplies, and helps to offset administrative costs for the program.

How many can participate in a week?

We can best accommodate up to a total of 30 people. We ask for 1 adult leader to accompany your group for every 6 youth. If your group has less than 15 participants, we may consider joining your group with another group.

Can I reserve a particular week for my youth group?

In order to save your week you must first complete the Google Form application (applications are processed on a “first come, first-served” basis) and submit the $350 non-refundable deposit within 14 days after receiving your confirmation email. This deposit secures your dates and commits your group to that slot. If we don’t receive your deposit within 14 days of your group’s confirmation letter, we will reopen that slot to other waiting groups. You will be notified when we receive your deposit so that you know your week is reserved.

When does it start and end?

Exact start and end times vary a bit depending on the location and there is some flexibility based on your group’s needs, but in general the experience begins Monday morning and wraps up Friday afternoon.

Who is it for?

K-Teams are primarily for middle school or high school youth groups. 

Do you have an application deadline?

No, we don’t have a firm deadline. Our weeks often fill up quickly. We’ll update our website as weeks are filled. We do ask that we receive finalized group roster and all necessary paperwork by May to help us adequately plan and prepare for the summer.
