What our students say

“This past summer was mind blowing. It was so incredible, and a great place to end my YXL experience. The theme was what made it such a perfect way to end: I’m going to continue my race, even though I’m not going to YXL, and will run, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of my faith, for strength and courage as I embark on the next phase of my race.”
