How can I register?

When you are ready to sign your student up, click the “register” button and fill out the forms. You can pay $50 to reserve your spot, and your additional payment of $125 will be due by January 1st.

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

Do you offer financial assistance?
We never want finances to be the reason a student can’t come to Winter Retreat. We handle all Financial Assistance on a case-by-case basis. Please email ea@yourhopecity.com to receive the form.

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 20thth 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 has been extended to January 16th, 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.
