EYC Spring Weekend 2024

May 3 - May 5

Spring Weekend is an opportunity for youth to come together with friends from all over the Diocese and to spend time in retreat with God.

Youth in grades 6 through 12 are invited to join us for a weekend of camp fun and fellowship as we explore what it means to be in right relationship with God and others. The EYC Board has been exploring abiding in Jesus’ love and is excited to share what they have learned with the youth of the Diocese. During the weekend youth will be staying in the campsites in chalets and will have an opportunity to not only grow in their faith but also grow in community with activities around camp.

Fellowship is fun, spiritual, motivating, musical, and active… and it’s at Chanco, so register now!!

Suggested packing list: bedding and pillow, toiletries, prescription medication in original case, seasonally appropriate clothing – bring layers including a swimsuit, sweater, hoodie, jacket, and raincoat, comfortable shoes, including one pair with closed toes, Bible, camera, musical instrument, books, flashlight, bug spray.
