The Youth Commission is excited to open Registration for the 2024 Diocese of Newark Summer Youth Trip, for youth in grades 8-12!
This year youth will be traveling to Louisville, Kentucky during the General Convention of the Episcopal Church. While there, youth will get to see some of the workings of our denomination, connect with other youth from across the Episcopal Church, meet with our Bishop, take part in spiritual formation, participate in justice activities/missions... and of course there will be lots of fun and food included. The trip is open to all youth currently enrolled in 8th grade through 12th grade.
The group will depart early on Saturday, June 22 and return late on Friday, June 28 (final travel plans and trip agenda are still being determined). If interested, please invite your youth to register ASAP.
The total cost for the trip is only $1500 per youth, which is all inclusive – apart from souvenirs and extra snacks. There will be limited scholarships funds available on a needs basis, but we also encourage parishes to offer financial support for their youth where possible.
