Empowering Students to Change Pittsburgh

Staff on Beach.jpg



Two camps. One purpose. Our goal at Surf City and Laurelville is connecting students to Christ. Our camps are designed to be safe, high-energy environments that provide students and adult leaders with opportunities to build relationships that will last far longer than the camp experience.


Surf City

A week long summer camp in Silver Lake, Michigan featuring a private beach, wave runners, horseback riding, loud energetic worship, and tons of other activities. Christian leaders and pastors come to share the love of Jesus with students and inspire them to change their communities.


Laurelville is all of the excitement and energy of Surf City crammed into a weekend-long fall retreat in the beautiful Laurel Highlands. Fall weekends feature high energy worship and games specifically designed to build relationships between students and adult leaders. Did we mention the mud pit?

It's all about connections. The Pittsburgh Kids Network exists to serve and connect local youth pastors and youth workers. For over 30 years, we have hosted monthly large-group meetings and smaller regionally based quad meetings throughout the Pittsburgh area.

Monthly Meetings

Monthly network meetings bring local youth workers together from across the city for a time of worship, prayer, and encouragement.

Network Events

PKN Groups

PKN Groups are regionally based groups of youth workers that meet to encourage each other, share stories and ideas, and discuss the unique landscape of local ministry. Don’t know what group you should go to? Check the calendar to see which one is closet to you.
