UNY Youth Con Albany 220
Type of event: Conference
It’s our first full Social Con in 4 years! We’ll have all the fun stuff: touch groups, workshops, worship; great food, a coffee house. This event is a social con for youth in grades 9-12. Social cons provide a safe space for UU youth to meet other youth and explore their religious identity. At cons, UU youth from different congregations come together for a weekend of worship, workshops, and fun!
If there is snow, we can walk to a nearby park to make snow people and play outdoor winter games. So bring your winter boots, coats, etc. Also bring pillows, sleeping bags, clothes, toiletries, instruments and a positive attitude
We can pick up people to/from the train station at the Albany/Rensselaer train station We would love to have youth, advisors and adults who are picking up stay for services at 10:00 am. Do note that parking is on the street.
