Summit Summer is a 12-day conference where students can experience spiritual growth as they explore hard topics that help them think deeper about their personal faith and convictions. Students engage with like-minded peers, ages 16-25, and explore answers to hard questions about your faith, purpose, and identity with world-class faculty.


Why Attend Summit in Colorado?

Students who choose this location will experience the classic experience students have enjoyed since 1962. Located in Manitou Springs, students will experience life in the Grandview Hotel and enjoy the stunning views of Pike’s Peak and the Manitou Incline. Off-campus activities allow students to see the beauty of God’s creation when students choose to zip line through the Rocky Mountains, raft the white waters of the Arkansas River, or simply take a gentle walk through the Garden of the Gods. The graduation celebration gives parents a glimpse into the two-week experience and ends with a night of dancing to close out the session!

More than Just a Summer Camp

We understand the unique challenges around the desire for deep relationships and intentional conversations about faith.

At Summit, over 475,000 students and adults have discovered the value of truth and relationship. More than knowing what they believe, they connect their faith with a Christian worldview, live it out, and lead others to do the same.

Topics Include

  • Marriage & Family
  • Economics
  • Bioethics
  • Evil and Suffering   
  • Leadership
  • Apologetics
  • Homosexuality
  • What is Truth?
  • God’s Existence
  • College Prep
  • Church
  • Doubting
  • Biblical Foundations
  • Worldview Survey
  • Pornography
  • …and more!
