Jacksonville Young Life Family Camp

Friday, April 21st - 23rd, 2017

Why Family Camp?

There seems to be so much going on that we never really get to spend quality time with our children. With this in mind, Jacksonville Young Life has designed a special weekend for your entire family at Southwind, a National Young Life camp just a couple of hours from Jacksonville in Ocklawaha, Florida. Join us for a fun-filled, memory-making family weekend. We guarantee you and your children will have a great time!

Registration is now open for Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, and Ponte Vedra. Register Now (and tell your friends) as we expect a sellout. Please note payment is needed to reserve your spot.

If you're not familiar with Young Life you're still invited! Have questions? Check out some frequently asked questions.


Who will be speaking?


This year we are excited to have Justin Forbes join us as our speaker for the weekend.

After graduating from Flagler College in 2002, Justin spent ten years in youth ministry working for Young Life in Florida. In this role he was responsible for building and leading teams that worked with middle school, high school, and college aged students that covered a broad spectrum of racial, socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds. In 2012, Justin decided to pursue further education by attending Princeton Theological Seminary. It was at Princeton that Justin discovered his love for teaching, and developing future leaders in Youth Ministry. Now, as the director of the Youth Ministry Program, Justin hopes to bring his past ministry experience and theological education together in hopes of serving his students at Flagler.

Justin is married to Bethany Forbes (’03) with four children and is grateful to be back in Florida, and near the beach! Justin is also an ordained Presbyterian Minister, and serves on the local Young Life Board.
