Youth explosion has been a major event in Royal Palm sponsored by Royal Palm Covenant church. This event serves to reach out to our youths in our community by addressing issues that are relevant and timely. These include topics such as: misuse of prescription drugs, making the right choices, spiritual enrichment. It also serves as a program that gives opportunities to our youth to express their talents. Most of all, the youth explosion addresses the spiritual needs of our youth. The church partners with local organizations, that makes it a successful event. Local churches also participate in to make this event a success.
In August 2004 the first annual Youth Explosion was successfully held. As many as 300 young people turned out that first year. Activities are held over a four-day period, with classes and seminars the first three days and an open-air concert on the fourth evening. There is a carnival atmosphere with vendors, slides, a bounce house and the youth dance ministries of local churches participating. Every year this event grows and is anticipated as a major summer event in the community. This annual event has been successful for the last seven (7) years.
