Individual Rate

Even on your own, you won't be alone here

Come on your own, or come with a small group of youth workers and volunteers. If you have 5 or less people to bring from your church, the Individual Rate is your best option. However, with 6 or more people, the Team Rate is more affordable. (Even though it’s called YS Team Training, you will benefit greatly from this training event and won’t feel isolated if you come on your own.)
