Bulldog Youth Event 2017
October 21 2017 - October 22 2017 | Location: TLU Campus
Bulldog Youth Event
High school and middle school youth are invited to join TLU’s Campus Ministries’ Team for an overnight experience of growing in discipleship! Youth and their leaders will engage in creative worship, explore meaningful small group Bible study, and build lasting friendships around our campfire. One of the highlights on Saturday will be Bulldog football, as TLU takes on Hardin-Simmons University. Bulldog Youth, their adult sponsors, and the Campus Ministries Team will spend the night in the chapel, with meals provided at Hein Dining Hall. Adults are also welcome to drop off their youth and pick them up the next day.
$35 per person, includes overnight housing, 3 meals, snacks, and all program activities.
Registration will be open in May.
Each student attending the Bulldog Youth Event must have a signed release form on file while on campus. Electronic signatures will not be accepted, please print and sign. Youth workers should collect forms for their student attendees and turn them in at registration. Download the Release Form.
