I wanted to update you on our planning for CPYC 2021. The good news is we are still looking towards an in-person event in June. Obviously, we are cautiously optimistic on that front but there are some tweaks to the typical event that we think are in the best interest for this summer. So click on the tabs below and see what the plan will be if we are able to have something in person this summer.
For starters CPYC will take place June 23-26. It will start late afternoon June 23 (Wednesday) and end by noon on June 26 (Saturday). It will still take place at Bethel University in McKenzie, TN.
This year’s event will be open to a limited group of students. This summer’s CPYC will be for the senior classes of 2020, 2021, & 2022. (Graduates of 2020 senior class and high school juniors/seniors in 2021).
Our max number for people is 200 which includes staff, adult participants, and student participants.
The cost will be $175 per person.
Registration will be first come/first served basis and hoping to open that in late April. There will be a max of 15 students/adults from one church/delegation/group. Each church/delegation/group will be asked to include one adult per 8 students/dependent on your male/female student ratio (staff is included with that number).
Groups that come together (or smaller groups that agree to combine for the event) will stay together including Lodging/Meals/Small Groups/Morning Mash/Worship. 4 total people per dorm suite. (3 youth and one adult).
CDC/State/Bethel guidelines will be used to maintain safety of all staff and participants. Expect to wear masks indoors and outside when we cannot remain socially distant. Additional information will be provided in the coming weeks.
All staff will be asked to be fully vaccinated for Covid-19 by June 1st (1st shot of J&J or 2nd shot of Pfizer/Moderna).
At this time, we are still making determinations on if participants will be required to be vaccinated or not to attend but they are encouraged to have had the Covid-19 vaccine prior to attendance.
A day at CPYC 2021 will consist of…
Welcome all CPYC Alumni!!!
For almost 100 years CPYC (formally YPGA/NACPYF) has gathered young people in the CPC & CPCA to deepen their faith in Jesus Christ, love for the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and create a space for Faith, Fun, and Fellowship.
We are excited to formally begin our CPYC Alumni Association that we hope will continue deepening the roots that were established by our connections and love of CPYC and for the sustainability of CPYC long into the future.
The membership into the Alumni Association will not only provide funding that will go towards the future of CPYC but also towards building our CPYC Alumni. We hope that in future years we will be able to host CPYC Alumni events including a 100 year celebration in 2023, a table top book on the history of CPYC, creating a CPYC Alumni mentoring program and more. We will also be creating exclusive CPYC Alumni merchandise including a free gift for your membership into the CPYC Alumni Association.
