What is Life Teen?
Life Teen is a Catholic high school youth ministry program. It provides a safe fun place for youth to find solid Catholic community, to get answers to their questions about faith, and, most importantly, to experience Jesus in a profound and personal way. Life Teen resources speak to the physical, psychological, cognitive, relational, and spiritual maturation of high school youth. Life Teen resources make it easier for youth ministers to plan out their semesters of Life Night, retreats, and to train a team of adults, the Core Team, to assist them in the ministry.
Life Teen at Takapuna
In 2018, a group of youth leaders formed the Core team and launched the Life Teen programme after attending the Life Teen Summer Camp in Otaki, Wellington. Today, a wide range of Life Teen branded events are offered - from Life Nights every fortnightly Friday, to school retreats. The first ever Life Teen Summer Camp Takapuna was launched in January 2021, with anticipation for the next one on the following year.
