Episcopal Youth Event (EYE)

This year, EYE will take place at the University of Maryland, College Park, July 4-8, 2023. The Diocese of Olympia will send a group of youth delegates with adult chaperones. The total cost for families is $330/delegate which covers: registration, airfare, lodging, meals, and transportation in Maryland.
