REVIVE exists to build up youth in the faith, provide leadership opportunities to students, and introduce youth to Camp Okoboji staff, activities, and games. 

The following are the goals of this ministry opportunity:

Youth Will Hear the Gospel
At the heart of this ministry opportunity is for youth to hear the Gospel message. The schedule of the lock-in includes structured times for devotions, worship, and Christian Growth (Bible Studies). This ministry opportunity first and foremost seeks to build up youth in their knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Develop Servant-Leaders
Depending on the interests of the congregation and youth, leadership opportunities are available for youth (or young adults). The Camp Okoboji Staff is prepared to lead all activities (game, devotions, Bible Studies), but encourage congregations (especially student leaders) to partner with them in developing and leading parts of the REVIVE. Student leaders’ level of involvement in planning can range from one game or devotion to planning the entire lock-in with the Camp Okoboji Staff.

Supplement Congregations’ Youth Ministry
REVIVE aims to further enthusiasm for learning and offers new ideas for congregations’ youth ministries.

Provide Christian Role Models
REVIVE provides youth with a safe and loving Christian community with young adult Christian role models and healthy activities for nurturing their faith.

Introduce and Further Invest in Partnership of Camp Okoboji
The REVIVE experience aims to foster interest in Camp Okoboji’s year-round program offerings among children, youth, adults, and families.
