Teen Night (6th-8th Grade)

Teen Night is simply a night to have fun! We will play games and get to know each other.

Lutheran Campformation of Arizona is an amazing week-long summer camp. Desert Cross encourages all of our Middle School youth (incoming 7th, 8th and 9th grade students) to attend this fun and powerful week. Many Arizona Lutheran Pastors and Youth Directors work throughout the year to build and then lead the programs for the week. Campformation has proven to be the most powerful week in the lives of our students. This is a "must do" activity!
