About Teen Haven

Reaching Urban Youth With the Gospel

For many urban teens, visiting our 50-acre camp property is their first experience out of the city to hear the sounds of animals at night, walk through the woods, and breathe in fresh air. Often it’s also their first chance to hear how much God loves them. Chapel services, cabin devotions and personal talks with their cabin supervisors ensure teens are presented with the life-changing Gospel Message.

Discipling Urban Youth to Maturity

We are blessed to see literally hundreds of teens come to know Jesus through Teen Haven each year, but it’s just as critical to help teens mature in their faith. When campers return home, they are invited to engage in camp retreats throughout the school year, weekly Bible studies at our city centers, and other activities.

Equipping Urban Youth to be Leaders

Teens Haven helps launch young leaders into their church, community and workplace with a heart to reach and disciple others. Teens identified as having leadership potential have year-round opportunities to put servant leadership into practice, whether through service at Teen Haven’s camp or leadership development programs at our city centers in Lancaster, York and Philadelphia.

Teen Haven is a ministry of Water Street Ministries, allowing our vision of changing lives to reach the next generation.
