Student Takeover - August 6-10, 2014

Student Takeover 2014 will be unlike any Student Takeover in the past. This year, eStudents from all of our Elevation locations will come together for three days packed with fun and teaching at the first ever Student Takeover Camp, followed by two days of students taking over every Elevation location, serving their community, and being a part of that weekend's worship experience. Don't miss the summer's most anticipated event.

    There is not a one-day event, instead we will be at camp for two nights! Student Takeover weekend will be Saturday and Sunday at your campus.

    We hope all students will be serving on their campuses over Student Takeover weekend (Saturday August 9 - Sunday August 10). Watch the website for more details about when to report to your campus for the huddle before serving!
  • Is there a nurse at camp?

    Yes, we will be bringing a nurse to camp to help with any injuries or other medical needs during camp.

    We worked extra hard to make sure that we had the lowest price possible for camp this year. The cost for camp covers everything for one individual. There are not price breaks for multiple students in a family. Thank you for being understanding.
