Star Gathering 1 Youth 2023

July 30 - August 6

The Youth Conference welcomes everyone entering 9th grade through newly graduated high school seniors for fun, relaxation, bonfires, lime rickeys, games, softball, swimming, and life-long friends!

This week we will look at relationships, self acceptance, acceptance of others, and ways to show our love. We will discuss the love languages – words of affirmation, acts of service, gifts, quality time, and physical touch. How do we show our love language to others? How do we receive love from others? How do we express our love if we disagree?

We will explore all of this – from peers, to siblings, to parents, to romantic love, to God, to the world at large. Come join us and share your views, learn something new, and enjoy the beautiful and emotionally accepting Beloved Star Island community.
