Senior High Youth Conference (SHYC, or SHYYYYYYYC) closed on July 20, but we'll do our humble best here to highlight a little bit of the awesomeness that went on during their time on the Mountain.
Part of the way SHYC lives into it's central message of, "Be ye doers of the word," (James 1:22) is by going to the Volunteer Farm in Woodstock, Virginia every summer to do whatever farm work needs doing. Their work at the farm plays a part in feeding and providing nutrition for over 150,000 Virginians every month. Read more about the central message of SHYC and their trip to the Volunteer Farm here.
SHYC also provided entertainment for and hung out at a local nursing home!
Continuing with SHYC's theme of living their out faith, one afternoon SHYC did Stations of the Cross.
SHYC had more than its share of fun at the All-Camp Carnival. Read more about the carnival here.
After a rewardingly exhausting week of volunteer work, fun, hiking, and song, SHYC finished out the week by sharing their experience with each other and with their parents at the closing Eucharist.
