Meals are provided as part of your registration fee. The first meal to be served is Sunday dinner and the last will be dinner on Thursday, for a total of 13 meals. Your youth group will be assigned a cafeteria based on your housing location at the University of Tennessee, along with other youth groups from your conference. There are also numerous locations throughout the campus and meeting venues where snacks can be purchased.

All lunches are served picnic-style at your assigned cafeteria.

Afternoon Options

During the afternoon, students have a variety of options. They may choose to go on an excursion together as a youth group, such as white-water rafting, hiking, horseback riding, and more. Swimming, sports, and a variety of activities are available during the afternoons.

Dinner takes place in your assigned cafeteria.

8:00 PM


MainStage is the time when every CHIC participant gathers together to hear incredible bands, worship together, and hear from some of the best communicators in the world. MainStage is often the highlight for our students as they experience an arena full of their peers worshiping Jesus and learning how to dive deeper in their faith together.


Small Groups

Small groups start right after MainStage and provide a safe environment for students to process their experience at CHIC.
