The OYYACM always seeks to ensure our formation offerings have an extra touch that goes above and beyond the normal experience. As such, we would love to send you an “experience box”. When registering please provide us with your preferred mailing address so we can ensure you receive the package. We will confirm your attendance prior to sending the package.
Basecamps can accommodate up to 20 participants and welcome all Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry Leaders (full-time, part-time, volunteer), Ministry Team Volunteers/Catechists, and any Supervisors, Priests, Non-parish Organization Representatives, and other Parish Ministry Leaders that find the presenting topic relevant.
Please consider registering as soon as possible. Once the 20 slots are filled the registration form will no longer be available. Due to the limited number of spaces, we ask that you plan to attend the fullness of this formation experience. If you are not able to do so, please plan to join us for a future offering. You can email Julia at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be placed on a waitlist. Also, we ask that if you register and are no longer able to attend the online formation offering please inform Julia, so that someone else may be able to attend.
