Diocesan Youth Ministry Office Package

The Diocese of Bunbury Youth Ministry Office has created an accommodation, transport and meal Package for young people from the Diocese of Bunbury and other rural areas and Dioceses to. It is our hope that this will make Veritas WA Catholic Youth Festival easier to attend for young people in these areas and also help build community between these people.

The package includes; Friday night dinner, Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast, accommodation for Friday & Saturday night, transport from the accommodation to Veritas and debrief/discussion  groups.

We ask that, if you are under 18 years old and if possible, you organise your own guardian/leaders for the festival with a valid WWCC. If you are unable to, we can help provide one.

 

Some Legal Stuff

All supervisors/guardians will be asked to read and sign our Diocesan Child Protection Policy and Volunteer Code of Conduct.  All supervisors/guardians/leaders supplied by us undergo a screening procedure which includes interviews, code of conducts, reference checks and a Working with Children Check. The Diocesan Youth Office abides by the Diocesan Child Protection Policy. We take Child Protection very seriously and have established reporting structures and child protection management procedures that all our volunteers are trained in. Our volunteer code of conduct can be made available on request and all adult volunteers can be asked to present their WWCC card at any time. Young people will be expected to respect any rules and instructions given to them by supervisors/guardians/leaders/staff while attending Veritas and using the accommodation.

Accommodation

The accommodation is at the Woodman Point Recreation Camp  (74 O’Kane Ct, Coogee/Munster WA 6166) – a beautiful spot with great facilities! Accommodation will be dormitory style accommodation. Males and females will be separated as well as over 18s and under 18s separated. Rooming will be automatically allocated but we will try to respond to request where possible. We will send more information about what you will need to bring closer to the date.

Food

The package includes Friday night dinner, Saturday and Sunday morning breakfast. We can cater for special dietary requirements (please indicate this on your forms). Snacks are not included so you may like to bring your own.

Transport

We will be transporting you to and from Veritas each day. Our drivers will have the relevant licenses.
