Inspiring teens through
fun, friendship and faith


Winterlight is a celebrated Kanuga tradition open to high school students grades 9–12 and recent high school graduates. As part of our KEY Conference series, Winterlight brings in the new year for Kanuga Empowered Youth. Take this chance to get away from the distractions of everyday life and spend time meeting new friends, hanging out with old ones, singing, dancing, ringing in the New Year and exploring your thoughts and beliefs. Participants come together in an inclusive fellowship that embodies the vibrancy of the national Episcopal Church. Adult chaperones will attend all plenary sessions and have their own workshops.

KEY Conferences Winterlight Youth Week




December 26, 2019 – January 1, 2020

The theme for Winterlight 43 is “Creating Beloved Community”: People feel more anxious, isolated, and lonely than ever before. Our world is marked by division at every turn. Christians are called to live differently and create beloved community where people feel welcomed, seen, and respected. At Winterlight 43, participants will learn about the beloved community and discover tangible ways to bring this vision into their communities, schools, and homes. From the first Christian communities two-thousand years ago to the Civil Rights Movement of the twentieth century and into present day, the beloved community is possible with God’s help. Joins us at Kanuga for a week of fellowship, fun, and exploration of the spirit as we discover how to be leaders in building beloved community together.

Join in our KEY Conferences winter celebration and make friendships that will last a lifetime.
