Episcopal Youth Event ‘20
July 7-11, 2020
Theme: Unite! ¡Unámonos!
Cost per participant will be $200
University of Maryland, College Park
Open to youth currently in 9th – 12th grades. Must be between the ages of 15 and 19 at the time of the trip.
The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina will be bringing a group of high school students and adult mentors. Registrations are being accepted until all spots are full!
Concerning the price
Each individual, with the support of their parish, will be expected to raise $200 toward the cost of the event. The estimated total cost will be $700 per person: $400 for the event and approximately $300 for travel and other incidentals. We know that is more than most people can afford, so we will be finding additional funding through fundraising and the Diocesan budget for the remainder.
We see our delegation as pilgrims that we are sending forth to this experience, it is expected that the sponsoring parish will help the participant come up with the majority of the money. Financial assistance will be available for youth who cannot get the funding. Do not let the cost of the event prevent you from attending!
Funds are due on the following schedule:
$50 due with registration
$75 due no later than April 1
$75 due no later than June 1
