Dear Youth Leader or Pastor,

Greetings from SYC Headquarters! We are so excited to have our registration for SYC 2017 up and running. Our team continues to stand in awe of all God does at our Association’s Youth Camp and are praying that you will consider sending your teenagers this summer.

Here are some of the important stats:

DATES:   Sr. High Jul 10-15
  Jr. High Jul 17-22

LOCATION:   Sunset Point Bible Camp
  Alberta Beach, Alberta

WHO:   Sr. High completed Grade 9-12
  Jr. High completed Grade 6-8

YOUTH:   $275 by July 1

LEADERS:   $200 by July 1


Once again our registration and payments are completely online, nothing will be accepted through mail. Main church leaders will get email confirmations as your youth register online. If you are the main church leader and are not receiving these emails, please contact us. Please help your youth and leaders remember these deadline dates. Remember that each leader needs to register under the ‘Leader’ registration button.


Our Convention of Churches, the CNBC, is in a wonderful partnership with the Eastern Baptist Convention in Cuba. Some of our leaders and church members have had the chance to visit with the people in Cuba and have seen the Cubans hunger for the Gospel and for Discipleship. Their youth and young adults are desperate to go to a camp similar to SYC. For each student to attend, the cost is $5 Cdn. This is more money than many can afford. We are challenging the youth that attend SYC to consider giving $5 each to help send a Cuban youth to camp. After a presentation on what God is doing in Cuba, we will be taking an offering during the evening worship service for this special cause. Please encourage your youth to give to this offering.
