Breakaway Teen Camp

Breakaway is a five day summer retreat that’s specifically for youth who are coming out of 6th-12th grade. It’s a great opportunity to break away from the noise of the city and connect with God. We are expectant to see all that God is going to do in the hearts of our students at this year’s camp! To learn more about Illinois Student Ministries, click the link below!
