The Episcopal Youth Event for High School Teens
From all over the world
July 10-14, 2017
What is the Episcopal Youth Event?
E.Y.E. is the triennial event for teens in the entire Episcopal Church. Over 1,000 high school students (and their adult mentors and some bishops) come together and live on a college campus for most of a week. You’ll take part in HUGE worship, large group presentations by great speakers, and workshops on interesting topics (from meditation to drumming and everything in between). We will be at the University of Central Oklahoma at a giant youth event with teens from around the world.
Who can go?
Teenagers who are currently in high school in the 2016-2017 school year. We may also need male and female adult leaders.
We’ll fly on Monday morning July 10 and return Friday night July 14. (To arrange lodging on Sunday in Portland or for info about transportation from other areas, contact us.)
What is the cost?
About $1,000. This includes airfare to Oklahoma, 11 meals, lodging at the university, transportation to and from the Oklahoma City Airport and all events at EYE17. The Episcopal Diocese of Maine is paying the costs of adult chaperones and $250 per student. (Please ask your church to help you fundraise. Financial aid is also available.)
Why is the application so early?
National registration opens in January, and E.Y.E. is expected to fill up.
