Youth Programs for 2016-2017
Last Chance to Splash!
Come to the last splash of summer on Sunday, August 28 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. at the Kenwood Country Club pool. All entering 5th through 12th graders are invited - along with your friends - to enjoy a couple hours of play in the water. Please sign-up in Founders' Hall or here no later than 8/24. There is no cost for this event. Bring your swimsuit and towel.
There are two new ways for youth to engage in fun and formation during this program year and we are excited about what will happen! Register youth here for this year's programs and be sure to fill out the year-long permission form.
Thursday Night Dunstan's Youth Group
Dinner at 6:30 p.m. Program from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m.
1st and 3rd Thursdays - beginning on September 15
This is open to all youth in grades 5 through 12 and will be lead by both Sue and Jeff. It will include games, community building, and being formed in faith. Some of the formation program will be specifically directed toward preparing youth for Confirmation. The sacrament of Confirmation would be an option in the spring for those who have completed 8th grade or above.
Collaboration Youth Events
Beginning with an event on September 18, we are joining with St. David's, St. Patrick's and Church of the Redeemer to bring together our youth for fun, service and learning. These events will happen once a month and take place on Sunday afternoons. The specifics of each event will be announced via the Trailblazer and through emails to parents and youth.
Our first event will take place on Sunday, September 18 at the GW Summit Outdoor Challenge Course at GWU's Foxhall Rd. Campus from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. The cost for this event is $15 per person. Participants will be required to sign a waiver form. Sign-up in Founders' Hall or here, no later than Thursday, September 15. Waiver forms and year-long permission forms have been sent to all parents, are available on the youth page of the web site, and are available in Founder's Hall.
Please put the following dates on your calendar for these joint youth events:
September 18 - October 16 - November 20 - December 18 - January 18
