SuperStart is intended for fourth, fifth, and sixth-grade students.
SuperStart requires one (1) adult for every five (5) students. We believe your group will be able to break up into small groups and connect with each other on a much deeper level with a student-to-leader ratio of no greater than 5:1.
You are responsible for your own meals. The schedule allows time for your group to leave the venue, eat, and be back in time for each session. Expect to eat 4-6 meals depending on whether you stay 1 or 2 nights.
You are responsible for your group's own housing. The cost of housing is not included in the cost of registration for SuperStart. You are not obligated to stay in the hotel, church, or camp listed in your event location. However, in an attempt to make housing as easy as possible, we have booked hotel blocks and have listed some housing alternatives for you. All listed options are on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The SuperStart! Store will be open before and after each session. Items ranging in price from $1-$30 will be available for sale, including...ministry resources and more! Cash, checks, and credit cards are accepted at the SuperStart! Store.

For three hours on Saturday, you'll have time to take your students to a recreation site of your choice to give your group a chance to connect with one another. We believe that lasting memories and deep bonds can be formed by talking and playing together. Plug 'N' Play is not included in the registration price for SuperStart and should be planned by the group leader prior to arrival.
Christ In Youth does not provide first aid supplies or on-site medical professionals at events. Leaders will be provided with the location of the nearest medical facility for their event location. In the event of an emergency, CIY staff will assist the adult leaders from the group with communication in seeking medical attention. However, it is the responsibility of the adult in charge of the group to ensure that the affected individual(s) receive appropriate care, are accompanied while away from the event, and appropriate payment arrangements are made. Leaders from the group should have access to medical release forms for everyone on the trip at all times.
Persons wishing to register for a full SuperStart event should complete the online registration process and will be put on a waiting list. No payment will be collected at that time. When space becomes available groups or additions to the waiting list will be contacted and given the opportunity to submit a payment.
No. Deposits are not refundable, cannot be applied to the group balance, transferred to another group, or applied to a future event. A $25 deposit is required per person to register. You are welcome to fill an empty spot with another student or adult from your church.
Payment in full for all students and adults must be processed through online registration or received by check at the CIY address provided at least 14 days before the start of the event. Payment in full dates will fall on the Friday two weeks before the event.
Payments can be made by credit card on www.brushfire.com or by mailing a check to:
