Episcopal Diocese of Upper South Carolina Youth Ministry gives youth in grades 6-12 the opportunity "To Know, Grow, and Sow the Love of Christ" through retreat-style events that seek to cultivate community, broaden perspectives, and deepen faith. All youth events are designed and led by youth with adult supervision and clergy input.
Parishes sending youth to retreats are required to provide Safe Church-trained chaperones at a ratio of 1 adult to 5 youth for overnight events and 1:7 for day events, with the exception of Happening, where adults are selected by the Lay Rector and Steering Committee; background checks are required for new volunteers.
For more information, contact Katelyn Kenney.
