Individual participants

Individual participants can select one of two packages, where they will join other young people from the Archdiocese of Melbourne to share the ACYF experience as a Melbourne Collective. Pilgrims will be placed in small groups, with trained leaders and chaplains from the Archdiocese of Melbourne accompanying each group. Each option includes a retreat of 1-2 days after ACYF to reflect on our ACYF journey. Packages are inclusive of travel, accommodation, registration, participation in Melbourne gathering in Perth, transfers and most meals. The packages range from 5-7 nights’ duration and is open to pilgrims from year 9 to 30 years of age.
