Why End of Year Gathering?

When one wants to meet one's fellow classmates and teachers, where does one go? If one has a hankering to visit Lancaster, PA, New York City, Gettysburg, how does one get there? Where does one go when he or she wants to dress up in ballroom attire and masks? End-of-Year Gathering checks all those boxes and many more! You're not going to want to miss this year, as we venture into Lancaster City for a scavenger hunt, spend an entire afternoon with fun-filled activities at Refreshing Mountain Retreat, and challenge our trivia knowledge in a battle of brains.

Join us for our annual EOYG! Meet fellow Veritasians for a time of fellowship and celebration, with plenty of fun along the way. We hope to see you there!

Frequently Asked Questions

How much does EOYG cost?

There is a registration fee of $265, which covers an entire family. Any additional guests can come for a $55 registration charge per guest. These prices cover administrative costs and costs incurred for free events. Additional events, such as the New York City or Gettysburg trip, do cost extra and their prices are listed in the registration form. If you only plan to attend the graduation ceremony, the registration fee will be waived. 

Do we have to stay at the Eden Resort?

Not at all! Please keep in mind that many events will be happening onsite at the Eden Resort, but staying overnight is not mandatory.

Should we arrange our own transportation to Lancaster?

Transportation is the responsibility of each party. Amtrak runs from 30th Street Station in Philadelphia to Lancaster, and many car rental services are available in the region. PHL, MDT, BWI, and EWR are larger airports in a two- to three-hour radius of Lancaster.

Where should we stay during EOYG?

Lodging for End-of-Year Gathering is not provided in the registration and is the responsibility of each party. A block of rooms will be reserved at the Eden Resort. Further details will be made available shortly.
