KCs & Youth

Developing the Next Generation


At Family Fest, we treasure kids and students! We are passionate about helping the next generation know and follow Jesus. In high-energy environments, all kids — toddlers to teens — develop friendships with peers and role models to discover how God made them special. Our desire is to provide kids and students with set-apart experiences to help them live set-apart lives for Jesus.

Kids’ Counselors (KCs)
In 2004, we pioneered the Kids’ Counselors (KC) program as a way for high schoolers to help lead younger kids during family camps. But the KC program has grown into a popular leadership development ministry, where high school students are being mentored in their faith by loving adults while also learning how to model a vibrant faith to younger kids. Many KCs go on to major in youth ministry or education in college as a result of their KC experience, as well as build lasting Christ-centered friendships. More than 400 KCs have been trained since 2004.
