What is Recharge
Recharge is a weekend winter camp designed for youth groups that is hosted by the Word of Life Bible Institute. Our purpose is to provide a Gospel centered ministry to youth groups by having a focus on evangelism while offering an exciting program that will open doors for teens to hear from God’s Word and be challenged to live for God.
Our program allows youth groups to focus on learning and growing in their relationship with Christ and with others. By sharing the Gospel message every weekend, we hope to see God transform lives and for teens to return home with a community of believers that will continue to invest in them.
“I had such a great time this weekend, and I also made the decision to follow Christ during one of the sessions! This camp made such a big impact on my life, and I’m sure it has made an impact on others lives as well.”
In God’s Hands
This theme of giving God control will be a part of our drama, messages, and music throughout the weekend as we dive into why we need God, and how we can trust His sovereignty.
Since 1985, RECHARGE has been providing youth groups across Southwestern Ontario with an unforgettable weekend of spiritual growth and excitement
