We retreat to advance. Retreats provide an opportunity to go deeper with God & grow closer as a group through great games, extended worship, memorable sessions, and meaningful discussions (without all the normal distractions).


The 2018 Snow Camp registration fee is $140 per person. Your registration fee includes transportation, two nights lodging, five meals, and lots of winter awesomeness! If more than one student attends Snow Camp from the same household, the per student price is reduced to $105.


Warm clothes for inside and out, a sleeping bag & pillow, a Bible & pen, and personal care stuff. Extra food and pop is OK as long as it doesn’t become a problem. Remember to label all your things! If you’re worried about something getting dirty, broken, or stolen we strongly suggest you leave it at home.


The registration deadline is Sunday, February 11th. To register, simply click REGISTER NOW and submit you $50 per student deposit (checks made out to “ECC”). The remaining $90 is due when we depart. Paper forms are also available and can be dropped, with the deposit, in the ECC-Mailbox on Sunday or mailed to:

WHAT IS CHIC? A Make and Deepen Disciples event, CHIC is the only conference that gathers students from throughout the Evangelical Covenant Church in one place for five days of worship, transformation, and fun. CHIC acts as a catalyst in students’ lives, helping them see the big picture of God’s kingdom and inspiring them to dive deeper in their faith–together.

Be sure to check out our FAQ section or contact us if you have more questions.

WHERE IS IT? CHIC is held at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Every church is responsible for getting their students and leaders to and from CHIC. If your group is flying to CHIC, transportation to and from Knoxville’s McGhee Tyson Airport (TYS) is included in your registration fee. Transportation to and from Nashville’s International Airport (BNA) or Atlanta’s Hartsfield International Airport (ATL) is an additional fee per person round trip. Check here for up-to-date details and to connect with your conference liaison for information about your group’s transportation plan.

We’ve also put together a handy checklist to make sure you don’t forget anything.

LEADERSHIP The CHIC council is a team of passionate leaders who are representative of the great diversity within the Covenant. Though they all come from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds, they are united in their shared love for students and in their commitment to making CHIC an unforgettable experience for everyone who attends.
