About The Point

We want you to experience The Point, and the theme for 2024 is Reframe. Life is full of ups and downs. Sometimes our view of life becomes blurry with the complications of our present circumstances. Using God’s truth and the book of Philippians, we will zoom out to help reframe our perspective.

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.

Middle School: select songs from The Greatest Showman, Wonka (2023 movie), Teen Beach Movie, Mean Girls
High School: select songs from Footloose, Alice by Heart, Once, Something Rotten

Lauren Leone Scholarship

Lauren Leone was a DuPage Chapter student who was in the midst of rehearsals when she unexpectedly suffered an aneurysm. As she struggled to survive, her CYT friends from the 17 productions she had been in gathered 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 held at Judson University, during her Celebration of Life, a memorial fund was established to continue Lauren’s legacy of sharing the love of Jesus through theater, but especially high school overnight camp.

Please fill out the application linked below and email it to kschinkel@cytchicago.org by May 10, 2024 to be considered for a Lauren Leone Scholarship for overnight camp in 2024. Recipients will be notified by May 23, 2024.
