Youth Olympics

Compete against other churches in a variety of games

Sign up for the ultimate competition and community building experience for students at Alive. Build community and create lifelong memories while competing against other churches in volleyball, Bible challenges, and obstacle course relay. Oh, and the winners get Front of Stage Passes for Sunday night at Alive and other festival swag!

The Youth Olympics are free to join, students must be in middle school or high school, and there must be at least 10 people in your group to participate. Events will take place all three days of the festival.


Enjoy Atwood Lake Park

In addition to non-stop music & entertainment, there’s so much to enjoy at the beautiful Atwood Lake Park. Atwood is home to a massive 1,500-acre lake where you can throw a picnic and hang out at the beach, swim with your friends, rent a pontoon boat, go fishing, hike on the trails throughout the park, take your kids to the playground, eat at the nearby Marina, and more! There’s so much to do. If you’ve never been to the festival or to Atwood, check out directions to the park and last year’s map. Stay tuned for our updated 2018 map.

Race throughout the festival grounds in our first annual Alive 5K & Fun Run next summer at Alive 2018! Whether you’re ultra competitive, or just want a relaxing walk or jog around the park, all are welcome to join in on the fun.
