CLAY is an incredible gathering of Anglican and Lutheran youth from across Canada. The Gathering takes place every two years at different locations across Canada. Our Gathering in 2016 will take place in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, from August 17-21!
At CLAY we’ll encounter scripture in meaningful ways, experience ancient and modern ways of worship, learn together in special interest forums, enjoy fantastic social events, explore Charlottetown, make connections with youth from all over Canada and celebrate our life together.
This is a youth-centered program that empowers youth and develops leadership. Not only will we have an extraordinary time at CLAY, we will share what we experienced and learned with others in our home communities.
At the very heart of it, we are children of God, and we want to affirm and respond to God’s grace and faithfulness in ways that are intentional, practical and meaningful.
Who can come to CLAY?
The Gathering is designed for youth participants who will be ages 14 – 19 in 2016 (born between 1997 and 2002). With the endorsement of their Home Team Leader and their local congregation, and with the permission of the CLAY REGISTRAR, youth are are age 13 (born in 2003) may be permitted to attend the gathering. Home Team Leaders intending to register a 13 year old should contact the Registrar prior to submitting the application.To come to the Gathering, you must be part of a Registered Home Team, pay the registration fee, and meet the age criteria.
What does the Registration Fee cover?
Your registration fee covers the cost of lunch, dinner and the program and events at the gathering. You need to cover the cost of the on-site accommodations and travel. That is usually arranged with your home team and is relatively inexpensive to share those costs between the whole Home Team. Fundraising is another great way to bring costs down.
