How do I register?
Each student must register with a church that is attending CDYC. Check with your local church for registration deadlines and cost.
When do we leave?
We don’t want anyone to miss the bus! Since you will be coming with your local church, check with your youth pastor to find out what time you need to be at the church to leave and when your student will return.
How much does it cost?
Check with your local youth pastor for registration prices and deadlines.
What’s the student to leader ratio?
Each church is required to bring 1 leader for every 10 students.
What about free time?
We have a pretty structured schedule, but students do have free time to choose from a variety of activities we have around campus. During free time, we highly encourage small group leaders to engage with students. If safety is a concern, please know that for 24 hours a day we have our own CDYC security along with campus security and the Mishawaka police department making sure students are safe.

Does my child need to bring money?
CDYC provides the opportunity for students to eat three meals a day and have a few snacks. However, students might enjoy purchasing items from the snack shop, campus store or the band merchandise table.
