Plans are underway for the 2017 NCYC delegation from the Diocese of Wilmington. Now is a good time for parishes and schools to begin the discussion with their young people and to think about fundraising.

There will be two ways to join this adventure. First, those who wish to bond in a bus will travel from Wilmington or points South in the evening of Wednesday, November 15, 2017 and drive the 12 hours or so to Indianapolis, IN. That group will return on Sunday evening, November 19, 2017. The cost along with a payment schedule will be annouced soon.

Those who wish to travel on their own (that is, with their parish or school group) can fly in anytime before 3 pm on Thursday, November 16, 2017 and fly out of Indianapolis anytime on Sunday, November 19, 2017. The cost for this package along with the payment schedule will be annouced soon. Airfare cost will not be included in this package and travel arrangements will not be made by the CYM Office.

Both packages will include your NCYC registration fee, your hotel lodging for three nights (quad occupancy for young people, double occupancy for adults), t-shirts, evening pizza, and transportation (if you bus with us). The hotel is downtown and in walking distance to the conference.

Scholarship applications are now available through CYFUSA. Catholic Youth Foundation offers scholarships to cover the cost of NCYC registration for those who need financial assistance. An application must be completed and submitted to the CYM Office prior to May 5, 2017. Please click here to obtain the application.
