What is the Registration Policy?

Complete the online application: please make sure to also provide an email address and/or phone number for the participant and supporting adult name.


What is the Cost?

The registration fee is $75 and includes t-shirt, meals, and lodging.


What if I Cancel?

If you call at least one week prior to Y.E.S., we will refund your registration fee minus $25.00 processing fee. No refunds will be given for cancellations the week of the event. You will need to re-submit an application for a future Y.E.S.


What if I Need a Scholarship?

We never want money to hinder participation in Diocesan Youth Ministry events. If you need a scholarship to attend Y.E.S., please email Stephanie Townes.
