Starting on June 1st, high school students from across the state will spend the summer growing in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man just like Jesus did in Luke 2:52.

At your campus, you will meet in-person three days a week for times of devotion, leadership teachings, and connecting with Highlands Staff. You will also have hands-on serve and evangelism opportunities. There's no better way to grow in your relationship with God and others from your campus. More details are available down below!

This is going to be the best summer yet!

We understand that things will come up and vacations are often planned in advance. To make sure you get the most out of this, we ask that you miss no more than two weeks (6 days).

What is the dress code?
We view our 252 summer leaders as an extension of Highlands Staff therefore, we encourage them to dress like it! If you are unsure or have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to a leader at your campus.

How old do I have to be to join 252?
252 is a high school program, so if you’re anywhere from 14-18 we want you to be a part!

Is travel covered on days that all campuses come together in Birmingham?
