Spring Weekend

May 20 @ 8:00 PM - May 22 @ 11:00 AM


Mark your calendars for May 20-22 to join the Diocese of Southern Virginia for Spring Weekend!

Spring Weekend will be held May 20-22 at Chanco on the James. Youth in grades 6 through 12 are invited for a weekend of camp fun and fellowship as we explore not only what it means to be an Episcopalian, but how we share our faith with others. During the weekend, youth will be staying in the chalets and will have an opportunity to not only grow in their faith but also grow in community while enjoying different activities around camp.

Cost per participant is $135. We will be staying in Chalets in Chanco’s campsites. Participants should bring their own bedding – sleeping bags or twin sheets and blankets, plus a pillow – and toiletries.

Registration deadline: Monday, May 9

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