Hayride and Chuck Wagon Dinner Saturday Night
CCWC is about praying, learning, networking, and having fun! Saturday night, weather permitting,
we're again planning a horse-drawn hayride and chuck wagon dinner around a campfire.
It's a real memory-maker! Bring jeans and a jacket.
Cost is $23 for those staying at the YMCA Saturday night in one of the lodges;
$28 for commuters or those staying in a cabin.
Payment for the hayride is made at the conference.

Need Scholarship Help?

If you need financial help to attend, we suggest you first approach your church or a Christian friend so that you will also have someone to provide encouragement and accountability after the conference. If there is no one you can ask, please visit again for scholarship info and an application. A limited amount of scholarship help is available for up to half the cost of registration (including some pre- and during-conference working scholarships). We can also, when necessary, work out a time payment plan. No scholarship help is available for paid critiques, meals, and lodging. The Lord will provide a way if this is the year He wants you to come. Trust Him!
