Youth Events

Great Plains Youth hosts annual events throughout the states of Kansas and Nebraska. Our two conference-level events include Annual Conference and The OneEvent. Regions and Districts also offer a variety of events for youth groups and training opportunities for youth workers.

 

The OneEvent

The OneEvent will be "one event, many locations," taking place at each of our five Great Plains camps. Camp retreat style with worship, workshops, and camping activities.

September 3-5, 2021

Early Bird Pricing: $100 (April 14-July 1)
Regular Price: $125 (July 2-August 3)

Each church is required to provide leaders for the students they bring. Your leadership should reflect both the attendance and gender make-up of the group you bring. You must have at least one leader for every seven youth. If you bring both male and female students, you must also bring male and female leaders. All leaders must be Safe Gatherings Certified.

*A student roster will be due August 26. This will help us with sleeping arrangements and assignments.*

We will follow appropriate COVID protocols, and as the weekend approaches, adult leaders will be given these details for each camp location, depending on the risk dial.
