About Us


Super Summer is a leadership and discipleship camp for Alabama students who have completed the 8th – 12th grade where they are challenged to be the leader God has called them to be.  Super Summer is where students begin to dig deeper in the word of God and own their faith. It is a place where they are not only discipled but challenged to go out and make disciples. Send your student’s to Super Summer because you want them to be encouraged and challenged by other believers from your youth group.
