We had the time of our lives on our Illuminate Church History trip. We had two children go. They were strengthened spiritually, created incredible bonds with the other teens, and had tons of fun! I will tell everyone I know to send their teens on this trip. It is life changing.

- Corey and Angie Calderwood, Parent Chaperones

This trip changed my life! I’m so thankful for the Illuminate Church History trip. It’s the best thing I could have done to strengthen testimony, build relationships, and see the country!

-Avery, Participant

I loved this trip. It was life changing, and it facilitated THE most spiritual experiences I’ve had in my entire life. This isn’t something you do for fun and then forget later. It’s something you do to come closer to our Savior and Heavenly Father, and make memories that last and foundations in your testimony that don’t break.

-Erik, Participant

“I can’t praise Illuminate Youth Trips enough! Justin and Lindsay set their trips apart from others by turning good experiences into life-changing ones. They cultivate an environment of vulnerability and fun, unlike anything I’ve experienced before. I am so grateful for Illuminate giving me lasting memories and even longer-lasting friends. Go, go, GO on a trip (and don’t walk, run!)”

“Best money I’ve ever spent on my teenager. You will not believe what Illuminate packs in to a few week’s time while encouraging growth in your child. You won’t regret this decision.”

Alex, Illuminate Parent

“Three years ago I signed up for my first Illuminate Youth Trip and didn’t know what to expect. Little did I know it would change my life forever. I have grown as a person and made some of the best friendships of my life, including Justin and Lindsay. Now I have been on three trips and I can’t stop traveling!”

Lexi, Participant

“I do not have enough good things to say about Illuminate Youth Trips! I’ve been on three trips and have made lifelong friends. My eyes have been open to traveling and really just making the most out of LIFE! The Bowens make everything so much fun and you can just be in the moment and enjoy where you are. Traveling with Illuminate has been one of my best choices! ”

Hannah, Participant

“I am so incredibly grateful my daughter did this! It was exactly what she needed at this time in her life! Thank you sooo much, Justin and Lindsay. I can’t believe the sacrifice you both make to provide such a life-changing experience for these kids! Anyone could see church history sites and tour the world, but your gift to connect and teach and reach these kids on so many levels-spiritually, socially, and intellectually is truly a gift. She will never forget this experience and the many positive things she has learned and dear friends she has made! You guys are the best!”

Ronna, Illuminate Parent
