Youth Rally

The Diocese of New England Youth Rally is an event where diocesan youth come together in a camp setting for Orthodox Christian education, fellowship, and worship. It is a time for learning more about our Orthodox Faith and applying it in the world in which we live. It is also a time for making or renewing friendships, and for having fun!

Youth Rally is hosted at the Saint Methodios Faith and Heritage Center, a beautiful camp and retreat center in Contoocook, New Hampshire. The event spans the entire week from August 5th through August 10th, and it is for children of ages 9 – 17.
