Upcoming Diocesan Youth Events

April 28-29 - Journeys
Journeys is an event for our junior high aged youth (grades 6-8) with an underlying premise that we are all on a spiritual journey and that in all journey's there are choices, bumps, smooth passages, dead ends, and unexpected surprises.

Particularly for junior high youth the important lesson is that in God's economy nothing is wasted to try many different ways to experience the presence of God and from those experiences to follow the path that seems the right for you.

Journeys will be held at Church of the Advent, in Kenmore, and will start Friday night at 7 and go until 5 pm on Saturday.

Email Wendy at wschumacher@episcopalwny.org to register to ensure we have sufficient supplies and food.  The completed registration form and payment ($25) can be brought with the child to the event.  

May 6 - Sr. High Event - Escape Room
Come, join us for a day of exploring and finding our way.  A member of St. Luke's Jamestown has been working hard to create an "Escape Room" just for the youth of the diocese.  "Escape Rooms" have become very popular within the past two years and are great for bringing people together.

The event is Saturday May 6, 2017 from 1-4 pm at The Church of the Holy Communion in Lakeview.  The event will be $10.

Email Wendy at wschumacher@episcopalwny.org to register to ensure we have sufficient supplies and snacks.  The completed registration form and payment ($10) can be brought with the youth to the event.

August 13-16 - Sleep Away Camp
Sleep Away camp will be returning this August for children between the ages of 8 and 12.  The camp will be held Sunday August 13 to Wednesday August 16 at Lake Chautauqua Lutheran Camp in Bemus Point. Campers will have the opportunities to canoe, swim, do an adventure rope course, play gaga ball, sing, do arts and crafts, worship, and learn more about God!

The cost per camper is $160.  To register, please print and send in the Sleep Away Camp Application with a $50 deposit.

We are also looking for high school aged youth and young adults that would like to serve as Junior Counselors for the camp, and for men over the age of 21 that would like to serve as Senior Counselors for the camp. Please contact Wendy at wschumacher@episcopalwny.org or (716) 830-5443 if you are interested.
