Knight Life Summer Camp


Be a part of
the bigger picture

Did you know that you can change boys’ lives with as little as a dollar? We invite you to learn more about our organization and how you can shape the lives of young boys.

We lead by three principles

1. Put God

We ask our cadets to believe in Jesus Christ, because He is the way to salvation. He is the truth and the center of life.

2. Be

We expect our cadets to treat everyone with respect, regardless of our differences. We ask our cadets to seek God’s guidance for all aspects of life, including friendships, finances, careers and relationships.

3. Do Not
Be Afraid To
Fail Big

We ask our cadets to pledge to never give up. Countless opportunities are missed because of fear or lack of confidence.

Where we began

In 2018, Lyn Lanier, Sr. founded Jubilee Youth Service and Leadership Academy (J.Y.S.L.A.) in order to transform the lives of boys throughout the city of Mobile and Baldwin County. Learn more about J.Y.S.L.A., Lyn and his team.


  1. We exist to teach, train, equip, and develop Godly character and integrity in boys ages 8 – 12 to become strong, courageous, confident, and compassionate Christian young men.
  2. We are committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ, sharing God’s plan of redemption and justification for humanity, and modeling a lifestyle of Biblical masculinity.
  3. We analyze how to apply practical life principles, personal core values, life skills, critical thinking skills, and servant-style leadership skills through a Biblical worldview.
  4. We encourage every boy in our care to remain pure, steadfast, and unwavering in their faith.
  5. We also urge every boy to adhere to a lifestyle characterized by obedience and faithfulness to Christ and His Word, which is life’s highest standard of achievement.
  6. We aim to prepare each young man to stand rooted and grounded in their faith against moral perversion and spiritual attacks outfitted with God’s
    Armor as described in Ephesians 6:10-18.
  7. We desire to make disciples of every young man we serve. We also encourage them to acquire a heartfelt knowledge and understanding of the saving power, grace, and mercy of Christ Jesus through the leading of Holy Spirit, to influence and impact his community, and to make disciples of others.


We desire to foster today’s young men to become Christian leaders of tomorrow through the practical application of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to affect positive change in the world through Christian discipleship.


Our mission is to teach, train, equip, and develop males 8 -12 to become strong, confident, and compassionate young men with a Biblical worldview.

We promote a highly structured, Christ-centered, supportive, and nurturing day camp environment where young men are transformed by the Gospel of Jesus Christ using a curriculum emphasizing the development of godly character, integrity, and servant-style leadership skills through a program called Knight Life Christian Discipleship Camp, located in Mobile, AL. We support a resilient growth process in our young men’s lives through a secure collaborative partnership between our participants’ families and our compassionate, trained, and experienced staff.
