2024 Summer Youth Trip: California Indigenous People’s Tour

Dates: July 26-28

Where: Palm Springs, CA

A note from our youth coordinator, Katrina Rodriguez:

I am very excited to be a part of this experience for our older youth. A lot of the plans are tentative as we need a solid headcount before placing reservations. My husband, Matt, and I will be chaperoning but we may require an additional chaperone depending on how many youth confirm they will attend. We tentatively plan to rent a large van to drive throughout the whole weekend. The weekend will provide a learning opportunity for youth to learn from the band of Agua Caliente Native Americans and connect spiritually to nature. The trip will be funded partially by an endowment called the Candlestick Fund. We currently estimate that the cost per youth will be $200 and we are requesting that interested youth reserve their spot with a $50 deposit. Scholarships (full and partial) will also be available.
