A lot of folk think so but don’t take our word for it. If you want to know more, ask someone who’s been. Get in touch using the contact information below. Also, you can read about the most recent Youth Week in this newsletter.
The Youth Week is open to anyone in the Scottish Episcopal Church who is in secondary education and those under 18 years old who have left full-time education.
The Youth Week is for young people in the Scottish Episcopal Church, and we want you to have a home church so that your faith can be encouraged all year round, not just for a week in the summer. Because your church pays part of the cost, you must be connected with a congregation. However, we understand there may be reasons you and your family don’t currently belong to a local church. If so, talk to us; use the contact information below. We will gladly hear from anyone who wants to come to Yeek.
The Scottish Episcopal Church partly covers the cost of the Youth Week. Other contributions come from you and your local church’s Vestry. This year’s contributions are:
There is an Early Bird Discount. If you pay before Easter Monday (10 April), the cost is:
There is also a discount for families or Vestries that send three or more delegates. Please get in touch with Fiona Campbell (see below) for details.
You will have a bedroom in one of the boarding houses. The College provides pillows and sheets. You only need to bring a duvet (or a sleeping bag if preferred). All bedrooms have washbasins, and there are shared toilets and showers on each floor. This year, you may choose a single or shared room. Please note: You’ll get a single room if you request it; however, we may not be able to honour all requests to share a room. We will do our best!
There’s plenty for everyone and lots of choices. The catering staff at Glenalmond College cook for Yeek, and they make sure no one goes hungry – whether you like roast beef or a vegetable bake. As a bonus, you get to eat in a room resembling a mediaeval dining hall.
Don’t worry! The catering staff are used to feeding people with different food preferences, intolerances, and allergies. Fill in your details on the Health Section of the application form, and we will be in touch if we need to know more.
Don’t worry! We can help. If you live far away, we can assist in arranging shared transport and any additional accommodation. Please get in touch with us using the contact details below.
Don’t worry! Financial assistance is available. Please email the Youth Week leader, the Rev Tembu Rongong (contact details below).
During the Youth Week, delegates will find links to sign up here. Choices change daily and vary in type – from baking to sport, nail art, drama, games, and more!
