Welcome all! Young adulthood is a time of transition, self-discovery, and finding one’s roots. Whether you are 18 and freshly bridged from the Youth Program or pushing 35 and working your way into the general adult community, a first timer or a veteran to SI, the Young Adult program has something for you. Come share and learn from one another. There is something special about Young Adulthood, especially here at SI!

Our worships meet at night, after evening programming, and will be led by our worship team aimed at providing meaningful worship for our Young Adult community. Our worship is designed with Young Adults in mind, but all are welcome to attend.

Find community together by staying together in the Young Adult wing. Feel free to bring snacks, coffee, and remember to bring a reusable water bottle! As a community, we welcome young adults with children and families, but for safety reasons, this wing cannot house children under the age of 18. However, all YA program participants, whether housed in the YA wing or elsewhere, are welcome to enjoy each other’s company in the YA dorm. One wing of the dorm will be substance free, and all YAs under 21 years old will be housed on this floor. Of course, those 21 and over who wish to stay on the substance free floor can request to do so on their registration.

Weekend Deal

Are you a young adult that loves Summer Institute but can’t come for the whole week?  Come for the weekend! Come Thursday night through Saturday morning, for a very reasonable rate,  and meals are included. Sleep in the lounge! There will be plenty of space, but we cannot promise beds, so be prepared and bring your sleeping bag, blankets, air mattress, and other camping supplies you might need. Check in will be 5-6pm Thursday at dinner. Be sure to arrive on time or contact the registrar.

Register for the weekend deal opens March 1.

Monte Carnival

Step right up and join the party with the Young Adults as we host our famous night of games, prizes, and fun! This afternoon will consist of fun games ranging from GIANT Jenga, corn hole, blinking contests, various card games, and more. All games can be wagered for “Nathan Bucks” and then exchanged for prizes at the end. There will also be face painting, fortune telling, and more. All proceeds go towards the SI Scholarship fund, see you there!


The Pub (21+)

From 9:30 PM onward, adults gather at the Pub to socialize, share a pub beverage, make music, play games and make new friends while reconnecting with old ones. It’s a great place to relax and hang out when the day’s events are over.

In compliance with state laws, no alcohol is permitted to be brought into the Pub or removed from the space.
