What is TREK?
TREK is our summer camp for students that have completed grades 6-8. We spend 4 nights and 5 days outside of Austin, TX on Lake Travis at Highland Lakes Camp and Conference center. Each session of TREK will have between 450-600 students and leaders. The typical day consists of times of worship and teachings, meals, small group time, team recreation, free time, hanging out at the snack shack and some awesome late night activities! During free time, students can hang out at the massive pool, go ziplining, play basketball, shoot at the archery range, play paint ball, enjoy lakefront activities, or just hang out and eat at the snack shack. Each year we see God do awesome things in the hearts and lives of students at TREK.
Session Scheduling Issues?
We understand that people have scheduling conflicts that may keep them from attending the session their school is encouraged to attend. That is no problem at all. A student can attend either session of TREK. Just be aware that there may not be as many of their friends attending.
How do we decide the divisions for the different sessions?
We look at the breakdown of schools from last year’s TREK, as well as the attendance from our weekend and mid-week services throughout the year at all of our campuses to help us determine an even split.
Is each session of TREK the same?
Each session of TREK will be identical in every way. The schedule will be the same. The speaker and worship will be the same. The activities offered will be the same.
Can my student attend both sessions of TREK?
The short answer is “NO”. We know that there are hundreds of students that want to go to both sessions of TREK, but because each session is identical, we are not allowing that to happen. Not to mention the fact that students start to get cranky when they are overly tired after so much awesome TREK time!
What is the role of a leader at TREK?
A TREK leader is a pivotal part of the camp experience! They show the love of Christ to your student through leading a small group, building relationships through shared experiences, ensuring student’s safety, and making sure they have an amazing time at camp.

How much does it cost to be an adult volunteer?
We do not ask our adult volunteers to pay anything to be a leader.
Is there financial assistance available?
We never want finances to be a barrier to attending camp, and we have very generous people in our Church who make our assistance program possible. If you need financial assistance please stop by your campus and fill out the financial assistance form. You will need to turn in the form with a completed registration, and a $50 deposit. We will let you know the amount you’ve been awarded once our approval process is complete.
