What’s Next:

After you register, you have two steps to go before your registration is secure:

  1. Turn in your registration fee at the youth table in the lobby
  2. Sign and turn in an activity release form at the youth table in the lobby



How can I register?

When you are ready to sign your student up, click the “register” button and fill out the forms. Your registration will be complete once you bring your payment and sign an activity release form at church.

Will transportation be provided?
Yes, all students will be required to take the transportation provided to and from the church.

Do I need to bring snacks?
Though your retreat cost covers some snacks and all meals, you are welcome to bring your own snacks to keep in your bag if needed.

Can I bring friends?
Yes! Bring all of your friends! Spaces are limited, so make sure you sign up fast.

How many leaders/chaperones will be attending the retreat?
It is our goal to have one pre-trained leader for every ten students that attend our retreats. In addition, we will have at least two Hope City staff members that will be on site for the duration of the retreat.

If I have special medication that I need to take throughout the day, what do I do with it?
If you have special medication that needs to be taken throughout the day and you need assistance with that medication, please submit it to our leaders at registration on Friday, January 29th with your name and dosage information clearly marked in original bottle inside of a Ziploc bag. Our staff will help take care of you throughout the weekend.

Can my students bring electronics? (Cell phones, laptops, gaming devices, etc)
We ask that students do not bring any electronic devices to the retreat. This is a great opportunity to get away from any distractions and focus on your relationship with God. Our staff will provide you with a list of emergency contact phone numbers if you need to get in touch with your student.

Where will I be staying?
We will be staying at the (very secure) Camp Cho-Yeh – our students will stay in separate girl and guy cabins with leaders.

What is the registration deadline?
The deadline to register is January 20th, but due to limited spaces, we encourage you to register as soon as possible.

Can I meet you at the retreat center?
We ask that all students take part in our transportation, but if you have an issue that will cause you to arrive late or leave early, please contact ea@yourhopecity.com to discuss your situation.


If you have any questions, feel free to contact our retreat coordinator: Elizabeth Ann King at ea@yourhopecity.com.
