Youth Groups

How do youth groups fit into a student’s life? At Park High students are members of various youth groups.

Brianna Pittman, Junior,  is one member of Livingston Community Youthgroup and has been since she was in 6th grade. LCY doesn’t not want to be affiliated with any particular religion but welcomes anyone who wants to join. Pittman says “We meet , eat together , do activities together and do lessons from the Bible that apply to the stage of life we all are in as teenagers.” Some of her favorite memories have come from LCY’s annual summer camp. These include playing a game called “Ball of doom” where members chase around a six foot ball. Another highlight for Brianna is when she ran into Arnold Schwarzenegger at Pine Creek Falls during an annual youth group hike.

Freshman Ilana Patberg also attends LCY and has since 2015. Patberg likes staying up late in the cabin bunks and talking with all her girls at summer camp as well as playing overnight laser tag.   

Junior Izzi Petry attends The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints which meets every Sunday  and Wednesday nights. Her favorite memories are at girls summer camp when she went on a 14-mile round trip hike. Petry says, “It was the hardest thing I have ever done, and yet it was so rewarding. The place we hiked to was the most beautiful place I have ever been in my entire life.”

Youth groups aren’t only a part of students life but an important part of their structure too.
