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 27, 2017 – January 1, 2018

The theme for Winterlight 42 is #Blessed: We often think of blessedness as health, material wealth, and happiness. We will explore the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:1-12) and Jesus’ message of true blessing. What does it mean for the poor, oppressed, and marginalized to be blessed? How can we be a blessing to the world?

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