St. Michael’s Youth Conference is an exciting opportunity to make friends, know God more deeply, and enjoy a fun-filled week. Teens aged 13–19 are invited to join a team of clergy and lay adult leaders for a week of worship, classes and recreational activities.
- Mornings are spent exploring the faith through classes about prayer, the Bible, and Christian theology.
- Afternoons are devoted to recreation (on outings or at the camp) such as canoeing, swimming, volleyball, archery, and hiking.
- Evenings are more relaxed, with a line-up of entertainment, discussions, games, and just hanging out.
- Worship, just as food strengthens the body, gives life to our souls. Days at St. Michael’s Youth Conference are framed by prayer according to the Anglican tradition: Morning and Evening Prayer (or Compline), and a closing Eucharist on the last morning.
The Conference is held at Selah Camp, five minutes north of Wiarton on the beautiful Bruce Peninsula. The camp is surrounded by woods and has separate, supervised cabins for boys and girls, plus a a kitchen/dining room, recreation hall and central washroom facility. It features an archery range and two large playing fields with a variety of sports equipment, and is located right on a lake, offering swimming and canoeing.
If you have any questions concerning the conference (registration, activities, etc.), please feel free to email our director, Diana Verseghy by email: email@example.com
“Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated and there was no longer any place for them in heaven. And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world–he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. ‘Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!'”
O EVERLASTING God, who hast ordained and constituted the services of Angels and men in a wonderful order: Mercifully grant that, as thy holy Angels alway do thee service in heaven, so by thy appointment they may succour and defend us on earth; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
(Book of Common Prayer)
