The Diocese of Upper South Carolina seeks "To Know, Grow, and Sow the Love of Christ" among youth through events offered for young people in grades 5-12. Diocesan events are held in various locations and are open to all youth and their friends. Each of these events, while focused on a specific age group and theme or program, is designed to deepen the spiritual development and the leadership skills of the participants. All youth events are designed and led by youth with adult supervision and clergy input. Our policies and procedures for our youth events may be found in our FAQS document. Churches are required to provide Safe Church trained, background checked chaperones for all retreats, except Happening.
