Canadian Young Friends Gathering 2019

Dear Young Friend Community,
Join us this August for Fellowship and Community Building!

This year’s Young Friends Gathering will take place Thursday August 1st to Sunday August 4th on the Campus of Canadian Mennonite University in Winnipeg, Manitoba. The gathering is open to those between 13-35 years of age. Children of YF attendees are welcome to attend!

Our past two gatherings have taken place at Camp NeeKauNis, and this year marks a departure as we move to an urban setting where new adventures and opportunities await!

YF Gathering Schedule – Winnipeg 2019 – Schedule

The registration for the YF Gathering has been combined with the CYM registration process. YF can register for the YF Gathering only, CYM in Session only, or a combination of both events. Young Friends must complete the CYM in Session registration (TBA) to register for attendance at any of these events.

Education and Outreach Committee is providing support for the costs of the YF Gathering. For those who are able, we suggest a registration fee of $50 per person to help offset costs – this fee is not mandatory.

Young Friends can work with the CYM Secretary to pay for travel expenses up front, or can apply for reimbursement by the Dec 31st, 2019 deadline, by completing the CYM Form for Committee Travel (under forms): 
*Financial assistance may also be available through your Monthly Meeting!

Accommodations are in the Poettcker Hall Dormitory. Rooms are double-occupancy with a shared bathroom down the hall. Tenting option is also available! Please let us know if you require special accommodations. 

Please register by July 15th 2019!
