dates & registration ----------->

Diocesan Youth Events: These events provide a great opportunity for youth to be with a larger group of youth from around the Diocese and are a wonderful supplement to your own youth group calendar. Youth experience different leaders, meet new friends, visit other churches in our diocese and live into a larger christian community. Events include faith exploration, fun, and fellowship, through contemporary music, worship, small group conversations, games, workshops and special activities. Please consider these dates when planning for your own outings, youth events and mission trips. Please join us! Friends are always welcome, have them register ahead.

What is 6 Day??

 6-day is an extended summer conference in a beautiful camp setting near Mt. Rainier at Pleasant Valley Christian Camp by Mineral, WA. 

It has all the components of a regular conference (HYC) just more days of them!:
large group games, small group conversations, workshops, different styles of daily worship, special activities, a dance and a talent show. 
Plus the addition of free time for traditional camp activities like swimming, putt putt golf, carpet ball, crafts, archery, and hiking, along with nightly campfires (as permitted). 
We stay in cabins, have great food, and fabulous music provided by our great contemporary band that several of the youth join in on. You don't want to miss it. Invite a friend!

If youth are interested in baptism or confirmation, both can be done at 6 day with prior preparation done at their home church. Greg comes out on the last day, Saturday, to do them so it makes it convenient for parents to come for and then take their youth home afterwards. Congregation members are also welcome to attend the service. Let us know when you register if you are interested.
