Teen Retreat FAQ

Are the kids supervised? 
We have plenty of adult supervision. We have 2 camp directors, 3 counselors, as well as volunteer staff. 

What are the accommodations?
Campers stay in separate cabins/lodges, girls with girls and guys with guys. We allow campers to submit one roommate request to camps@cytdallas.org. Roommate requests are not guaranteed and are more likely to be accommodated when mutual requests are made. 

What if my child has food allergies?
Please email camps@cytdallas.org with any allergies.

What if my child is not old enough for the camp?
Our summer session is June 1st-September 1st.  As long as your student reaches the age of eligibility during this session, then your student can participate in that camp.  We cannot make any other age exceptions for our camps.  If you have difficulty registering for a camp due to age requirements, please email camps@cytdallas.org.

Do students get to have a cell phone?
CYT is not responsible for loss or damage of cell phones. Although they are allowed to have them, there will be times that they must keep cell phones off or out of hands. When you drop your child off for camp you will be given the Camp Administrator cell phone number for emergency contact.

Are students allowed to leave camp?
No, however, with prior permission for extreme circumstances, campers may be allowed to leave with a parent for a short period of time. This needs to be approved by the Camp Administrator. You can email camps@cytdallas.org with any questions.
