The confirmed plans for Summer 2022 are these: CYIA Camp will be held at the beautiful Camp Dogwood Lodge from Sunday, June 5 to Saturday, June 11. CYIA students and staff will enjoy the Group Lodge at the park while preparing for 5 Day Club ministry in their local chapter areas.

The form covers a lot of information and it is important to complete it as thoroughly as possibleIt is best to do this all in one sitting, so plan to give yourself at least 15 minutes… you cannot save it to come back to it later. It is broken up into pages and you must complete each page before you move on to the next. There will be a button or buttons at the bottom of each page that will help you navigate the form. There is also a “breadcrumb” above to allow you to jump back and forth to completed pages if you need to.  The last page contains the “Submit” button.
