Preparing to Travel Light! – An Update on the 2008 Canadian Lutheran Youth Gathering

To date about 700 people have registered for Travel Light , the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC)’s 2008 Canadian Lutheran Youth Gathering (CLYG) taking place August 14 to 17, 2008 in Whitehorse, Yukon.

The deadline for submitting registrations is April 30. If you are working on your registration, the time has come to finish that task! If this is the first time you thought of going to Travel Light, there is still time! Thinking of inviting your Anglican neighbours to join you? There is still time for that too!

The ELCIC is aware that for youth groups, the adventure of going to Whitehorse is both an amazing opportunity to experience the north, and a logistical/financial challenge. Planning continues to have an exciting and inspiring event.

Currently, there is still space for registrations and we will likely be able to offer a bit of grace on the registration deadline. However, it will help the planning team if you contact the registrar and let her know that you are in the process of preparing registrations. Contact information is as follows:
