Celebration is a youth rally that began in 1982 by a group of Christian men who wanted to have a spiritual event to build up young people by encouraging and helping them to be more spiritually strong. Since that time Celebration has continue to be a traditional event that takes place each fall at the Kentucky Dam Village. The first one was held at West Kentucky Youth Camp. Celebration has changed some with the times but the message still stays the same. The message of Jesus is annually preached to around 1000 teens and sponsors.

You stay in the Kentucky Dam Village Park in the hotel or cottages; there are some that are asked to stay in hotels and motels near the state park.
Celebration is run by a committee of twelve Christian men who choose the speakers and the events that take place each fall. All of those on the committee are members of the churches of Christ.
Celebration is for 6th grades to 12th grades and chaperones. We realize that small children do come from time to time, but if they take up a seat we ask you to pay for them because seating is limited. Celebration is for teens. The activities and content will be centered around the teens for the weekend.
