May 27 - May 29
Over Memorial Day weekend, hundreds of Youth (grades 6-12) and adult youth workers will gather at the University of Puget Sound for CONVO, three days of worship, fun, and learning. This United Methodist youth retreat is a fantastic opportunity to connect with friends new and old from across the Pacific Northwest!
This year’s theme is “BOLDLY GO and make a difference.” Our speaker, Chelsea Spyres will lead us in exploring how we can be the change we want to see: in ourselves, our church, our families, and in our communities. You can read more about Chelsea below.
Every year, CONVO is planned by an excellent team of youth and supportive adults who have a passion and dedication to making this the best event it can be; this year is no exception. We’ve been hosting this “Bishop’s Youth CONVOcation” for over 40 years and we are praying for a weekend where both youth and adults are equipped and recharged to live as passionate disciples of Jesus Christ.
We hope you will join us in boldly going to CONVO on May 27-29!
Who Can Go?
CONVO is for youth currently in grades 6 – 12 and their adult leaders (sorry, no mature 5th graders). We ask churches to send one adult, who has completed a national background check, to accompany every 1- 6 youth of each gender. We will try to accommodate youth in cases where this isn’t possible. We offer scholarships, for those in financial need, to help to make this retreat possible for all.
CONVO registration is online. Each youth and adult registering must fill out an online registration form. If you have difficulties with the registration process, please contact us and we’d be happy to help!
Your registration fee includes your lodging as well as food from dinner Saturday through breakfast on Monday.
Registration will close at 9am PST May 10th, 2017.
