2015 Organic Youth at Harvest House

Organic Youth returns for our annual overnight at Harvest House!  Barring 7 feet of snow again, we are all-in for Friday night-Saturday morning, 8 pm-8 am, on November 20-21 at Harvest House, 1782 Seneca St. in Buffalo.

Cost for youth is $20 each (sibling discounts available), adult leaders are free!  This covers all program, food, drink and facility costs.

All youth in grades 6-12 and their adult leaders take part in:

  • A moving worship concert by Nick Stroczkowski
  • Before the event, filling Harvest House baby bottles with change and bringing those to the event…we’ll put all that we get together and wrap the coins to donate
  • Games and activities: some organized by the Organic Youth Leadership Team, others happening all night (gym games, retro arcade, board games, movie room)
  • Pizza and snacks all night, breakfast in the AM
  • Assembling 100 personal care Christmas gifts and making cards of hope for each of them!  This amazing service activity will share Christmas love and hope with our neighbors in need…Harvest House will give these to their clients that use their Baby and Children’s Thrift Shop!  Thanks to Thrivent Financial for making this activity possible!
  • If you need to, sleeping areas are available
  • Building relationships all night long!
