Events and Programs for Youth & Young Adults

Summer Conferences at Silver Lake

Our in-person summer camp programs have been canceled for 2020, but their are lots of  alternative offerings for youth in grades 4 and up.  Teens can participate in JuST Camp with a virtual mission experience and/or Real to Reel video production.  Silver Lake programs nurture inclusion, leadership development, environmental justice, and beloved community.  


Confirmation Retreats

At Craigville Conference Center on Cape Cod

At Prindle Pond in Charlton, MA

At Silver Lake Conference Center in Sharon, CT

Check back soon-- The 2020-2021 schedule is 'under construction.'

Confirmation  groups and their youth in grades 7-9 are invited to join us for a weekend with activities, worship, and fellowship through our theme of "Becoming and Belonging." These weekends are facilitated by trained teams of pastors and educators from throughout our state. The purpose of these retreats is to offer youth an experience of the wider faith community by exploring basic Christian values of the church in a new community.  Come play and learn together! 



SNEUCC Youth Revival

In response to the restrictions of Covid-19, our annual Youth Revival went virtual.  A World Turned Upside Down was a creative response to restrictions on in-person gatherings.

Giv2 (Give Squared)  

Giv2 is a corps of youth and adults giving back to our communities in response to the gifts of God. This model encourages collaboration as groups of congregations to unite in service in their local communities.


Thinking About Working For God

The primary aim of the TAWFG program is to notice, name, and nurture youth who have gifts for ministry. This program features the annual "SHINE" retreat for high school students in the fall and also paid apprenticeships in the spring.

Young Voices Project

Share your wisdom, your faith, and your creativity.  SNEUCC wants to hear your thoughts about discipleship -- whether in a blog, poem, or a song.  Send your entries to Debby Kirk.  Items  that are selected for publishing will receive a stipend.


United Church of Christ Leadership Events

UCC National Youth Event


United Church of Christ’s National Youth Event was to have taken place at Purdue University in West Lafayette Indiana July 22-25th 2020.   The event has been postponed to summer 2022 as a result of the Covid-19. This 4 day event is celebrated as the largest denominational gathering. Often bringing in 4,000 participants, this time together is centered on faith, leadership, service and social justice to empower our youth and young adults (ages 12-22).  The National staff and NYE presenters have teamed up to share their thoughts of Loving Your Neighbor in Quarantine.
