Jr. Youth

(Building Bridges is a world religions program to deepen youth’s understanding of the dynamic, fascinating, and varied world in which they live. It seeks to broaden their knowledge of humanity and embolden their spiritual search.)


Hey Peeps,

We will be sleeping in our portable on Saturday night for our JY overnight. I’m planning to bring some Halloween movies (PG) and there will be an option to stay up late watching them or go to sleep at a reasonable hour.

Zoe’s dad is coming so we will have enough adult presence but if someone else would want to join, that would be great!

Youth should come at 6 pm having already eaten dinner and bring any snacks they’ll want. Please bring a water bottle and remember that sleeping on the floor will be much more pleasant if you bring something cushy to sleep on.

Breakfast will be cereal bars and juice (I’ll bring some) unless some well rested parents want to do something fancy on Sunday morning.

My cell phone number is 425-219-3508. Youth will be asked to surrender their phones when they arrive so if you need to check in with your youth, please call my phone.

See you Saturday!
