Registration is open for our summer youth conference! We are excited to be participating in Momentum for a week full of life-changing worship sessions and hands-on ministry experiences where students will be spiritually challenged and grow in their faith.

July 15-21, 2024

When and where is the conference?
July 16-21 at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, IN. We will leave on July 15 and return on July 21.

What is the cost of the conference*?
*Scholarships of up to $300/person are available. We do not want cost to hinder students' ability to attend. Information coming by email.

Early Bird Registration (Jan 1 – March 15): $525
Regular Registration (March 16 – May 15): $550
Late Registration (May 16 – June 15): $575
Final Registration (June 16 to July 16): $600

Our church leaves one day early and incurs a $27/person charge for the extra night. Please factor this in.

The cost includes housing, all programming, and lunch and dinner. Breakfast is available for an optional $30.

 

Who's invited?
All Compass Students currently in grades 9-12 are invited to sign up.

 

When will we leave Calvert Grace? 
Monday, July 15th at 7AM. 
We will leave Calvert Grace a day early due to the length of the drive. Adult leaders will be driving our church vans. Check in for the conference begins Tuesday at 9AM, but they offer a Monday night check in option and allow us to board there for an additional $27 per person. This gives us the opportunity to check in more easily, as well as take advantage of becoming familiar with the facilities ahead of time. Our church will purchase dinner for the group that evening.

 

How do I sign up and pay for my child(ren)?
Please use the link at the bottom of this page to access Momentum's official registration system.

 

When will we return from the trip?
Sunday morning, the 21st, we plan to leave Momentum at 9 AM, getting us back to Calvert Grace by approximately 8 PM that evening.

 

What is the rooming situation like?
Boys and girls are assigned to separate dormitories and will sleep two youth to a room, with multiple adult group leaders chaperoning each floor. 

 

How many of our adult leaders are attending?
We will be taking 8 total adult Small Group Leaders on this trip.

 

Is food provided?
Lunch and dinner are provided each day. However, breakfast is an additional cost of $30 for the week if a student decides to add that plan. We encourage parents to add the breakfast plan. If you do not add this plan, please let your child know so they do not feel excluded.

 

What if my child has allergies to certain foods?
Food allergies are taken very seriously at Momentum and during day 1 of camp, all students with allergies will be assisted in alternative options for their meals. For more info on this, please reach out to Carly (her email is at the bottom of these questions!)

 

What does a typical day look like?
Each day, students will take part in 3 biblical talks and worship sessions by multiple speakers (morning, afternoon, night). They'll also spend time serving in the local community and grow with one another in sports and large group activities each day.

 

Should my child bring any money?
Yes, we suggest each child bring approximately $30 for food on the trip to and from. In addition, the camp will offer gear shops and snacks for purchase.

 

What about a packing list? What do they need to bring?
All students who sign up will receive this information approximately one month from our departure date.

 

If I have any other questions, who can answer those?
We can try! However, Carly, Momentum's registrar has allowed us to include her email here (cnicodemus@buildmomentum.org) and enjoys answering any parent questions!
