MERGE programs provide fun, meaningful events for middle and high school students in our local community—helping them build healthy, encouraging relationships. 

MERGE events are run by UPBC's Coordinator of Local Outreach, Jeff Martin.



The MERGE Youth Retreat at U.P. Bible Camp is designed to help young people start the school year strengthened in their faith and grounded in God’s Word. It’s held in late September, for students in grades 7-12.

The retreat is built around four chapel sessions that include Christ-centered worship, engaging Bible teaching, and carefully planned small group discussion that challenges teens to apply the teaching to their own lives. You will also have all of the fun and excitement that comes with being at camp: team games, campfires, the adventure challenge course, and making memories with old and new friends!
