About The Point

The Point Middle School Day Camp
(completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade, minimum age of 12)

The Point High School Overnight Camp
(completed 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade)

We want you to experience The Point | Crossfade - Fade Up On: The Holiness of God.

The week's activities and events are tailored toward developing your strengths, deepening your relationship with others, building confidence, and having FUN. Most importantly, each day we set aside times to worship, pray, fellowship, and delve into God’s word together. Our prayer is that every camper walks away knowing that they are perfectly loved by a Holy God.

Both the middle school day camp and high school overnight camp will conclude with a cabaret-style showcase. Both variety style showcases are open to all family and friends.

At camp showcase, students will be performing songs from shows like Matilda, The Lightning Thief, Anastasia, Tick Tick Boom…, Hadestown, Mean Girls, The Addams Family (and more!) and scenes and monologues from the stage and screen. The Point’s showcases have been developed to challenge and grow campers as performers. Our seasoned camp staff leaders are trained in the arts and are excited to present workshops and theater arts training.

We recognize that the financial aspect of camp can feel daunting for some, so we have put together a list of ways you can raise funds for your camp tuition! This is a completely optional step in preparing for camp. 

Lauren Leone Scholarship

Lauren Leone was a DuPage Chapter cast member who was in the midst of rehearsals for Shrek: The Musical in January of 2015 as well as a member of Project Voice when she was inflicted by a sudden aneurysm. As she struggled to survive, her CYT friends from Shrek as well as 16 previous productions rallied to pray, worship and support one another. On February 2, 2015, Lauren went home to her Lord.

Since Lauren had been profoundly impacted by attending CYT Chicago's high school overnight camp for teens held at Judson University, her family desired to continue to bless others in sharing that same life-changing experience that their daughter so deeply loved. During her Celebration of Life, a memorial fund was established to assist her family in continuing Lauren’s legacy of sharing the love of Jesus through the many facets of theater, especially the high school overnight summer camp. Although she is not physically here, Lauren’s life has continued to impact those for God’s kingdom.

Please fill out the form linked below and email it to kschinkel@cytchicago.org by May 5, 2023 to be considered for the Overnight Camp Summer 2023 session.

High School overnight camp recipients will be notified by May 20, 2023.
