Believe the Promise 



Your designated camping area will be calculated on the total number of tickets you purchased on the CYE website. We are allotting 125 sq feet per ticket sold. We try to proportion the lot as close to the shape of a square as possible, but many times it will be a rectangular shape. You may bring whatever you want to put on that site...You may not go outside of the lines drawn, including the air space above your line. This includes tent stakes.


Ticket Exchange

Our Youth Department will facilitate the list of ticket needs, but you will need to contact the people directly to make the transaction. View the ticket exchange list below:

Teens who are allowed to go without an adult, should be with a group at all times. There is safety in numbers. Set up meeting places and times to meet during the day to reconnect and check everyone’s health. Always have an adult with kids. Travel in groups.

When going to bathroom at night - Kids need an adult.  Teens need a buddy with them.
