Bulldog Youth Event

Register Now

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 on our home field. 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 deadline is October 15.
