We exist for students to meet Jesus, grow in their relationship with Him (through Bible studies, service opportunities, discipleship, camps/retreats...), share his love in action and in truth, and worship Him in everything we do.
We meet Wednesday nights from 7-9pm at Harvest. This group is available for students in 6th grade through their senior year of high school. Most Wednesday nights consist of teaching from the Bible, time in small groups for discussion, fun games, and time to hang out to encourage and enjoy one another.
Our volunteer youth staff is made up of adults who are committed to following Christ, attend Harvest, have a heart for youth, and have time to pour into their lives. If you're interested in working with youth contact Matt to see what is involved, or you can click here to begin your application.

Wednesday night teaching
Beginning in May 2018, the high school group is teaching on the Story of God. Click here to listen to the lessons.
One of the most important goals for this next school year is to have more opportunities for students to meet in smaller groups with an adult volunteer for the purpose of growing in their relationship with Christ. If you want to be part of a group like this talk to Matt or any of the staff to find out what is available.
5th Quarter takes place after almost all of Camas High School's home football games in the fall. High school students are invited to Harvest to play awesome games and hang out starting 45 minutes after the game ends, and ending at midnight. We provide a safe, fun environment for high schoolers to be on those Friday nights, complete with pizza!
