Breakaway is an annual 5-day summer camp for teens, purposefully designed to provide opportunities for students to explore faith in an environment suited for spiritual growth and the development of meaningful relationships with peers and mentors, amidst all sorts of excitement. Breakaway continues to serve as a strategic tool for youth pastors to provide discipleship to their students and connect with their teens outside of the regular weekly routine. As many past experiences indicate, Breakaway has the potential to serve as a catalyst for spiritual growth for both individuals and groups.

Next Gen Ministries has been proud to partner with YCNL to help resource local leaders to invest in school communities. By addressing topics like bullying, leadership, character, choices, and self-worth, we believe the assemblies add value to school communities by building on the Character Education and Safe and Caring Schools initiatives of the Newfoundland & Labrador English School District, and by supporting the ongoing efforts of teachers, counselors, administrators, and staff.
