IS YEEK FUN?

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 on this website. Also, you can read about the most recent Provincial Youth Week in this edition of Inspires Online.

WHO CAN GO?

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.

What’s a ‘Delegate’?

You, if you choose to attend Yeek 24, are a delegate – sent by your church to the Provincial Youth Week as their representative. Faith communities from all over Scotland contribute to the diverse and enriching experience shared by all.

DO YOU HAVE TO GO TO CHURCH TO GO TO YEEK?

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; we want to hear from you. For contact details, visit our Contact page. We will gladly hear from anyone who wants to come to Yeek.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

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:

Delegate: £185
Vestry: £165

There is an Early Bird Discount. If you pay before Easter Monday (1 April), the cost is:

Delegate: £175
Vestry: £155

Payment is due by 1 July 2024. There is an option for families to pay in instalments, and discounts are available for families and Vestries sending three or more delegates. Contact Fiona Campbell, the Youth Week Administrator, for details.

WHERE WILL I SLEEP?

Each delegate will have a bedroom in one of the boarding houses, complete with bedding, including duvets – a change from previous years. All bedrooms feature washbasins, and each floor is equipped with shared toilets and showers. You have the option to choose between 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!

WHAT’S THE FOOD LIKE?

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.

WHAT IF I HAVE A FOOD ALLERGY?

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.

WHAT IF I LIVE FAR AWAY?

Don’t worry! We can help. If you live far away, we can assist in arranging shared transport and any additional accommodation. Get in touch with us using the contact details available on the Contact page.

WHAT IF I CAN’T AFFORD IT?

Don’t worry! Financial assistance is available. Please email the Youth Week leader, the Rev Tembu Rongong. You can find his contact details on the Contact page.

WHEN CAN I CHOOSE MY ACTIVITIES?

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!
