About the Episcopal Mission Center

Participants will be staying at the EMC in Germantown PA. The Center hosts a wide array of service groups, camps, and programs year-round. We will have the opportunity to join in with youth from around the Diocese of Pennsylvania while we are there.

Pricing and Transportation

Staying at the EMC is $40 per person per day. All meals are included for $30 per person per day. This means a total cost of $420 per person for the week ($70/night for 6 nights). Scholarship funds may be available.

Transportation is not included in the above costs. If you are interested in coming on the trip, can drive, and have a multi-passenger car please let us know! We are hoping to save cost (and do our part to cut down on fossil fuels) by carpooling. Also, some pocket cash is always helpful.
