Mid-Winter 2021: Side by Side

February 5-7, 2021


Session 2:

February 19-21, 2021

Keep watching this space for further details on Mid-Winter 2021!

Get ready for an amazing weekend as Central Texas Conference Youth in grades 6th-12th join together for worship, small groups, games, music, and fellowship. 

Your youth ministry has two Mid-Winter weekends from which to choose: February 5-7, 2021, or February 19-21, 2021. The format for each is identical. Check in on Friday is at 7 p.m. and dismissal on Sunday at 11 a.m.

  • The first step is Group Registration (required). If you are the primary *Group Leader of your Youth Ministry (usually Youth Director, but perhaps another title describes you better), scroll down to Group Registration on this page. 
  • Each person's $125 fee is all-inclusive (Meals, lodging, worship band, Mid-Winter 2021 t-shirt, etc.) Register early for a $25 per person discount! Registration information can be found farther down on this page.



Here's where Groups register

(* For Group Leaders only, please scroll down to access the Individual Registration link)

 Group Registration (required) opens on September 4, 2020. Group Registration allows CCYM to make initial plans and preparations for Mid-Winter, and for the CTC office to communicate directly with Group Leaders. Group Registration does not require a deposit, and does not reserve a number of spots for your group.

Here's where Individuals register

For Individuals (students and adults) 


Individual Registration opens November 6, 2020. Registration fee is based upon the date the individual participant submits their registration. Registration fees are non-refundable. Please encourage your participants to register early to take advantage of the Early Bird discounted rate of $100 per person. Registration is first-come, first served, until capacity is reached. 


Please note, individuals must attend with a pre-registered group. We are unable to accommodate individuals not attached to a church group.

  • Early Bird: November 6, 2020 - January 1, 2021 - $100 per person

  • Regular Rate: January 16, 2021 - February 3, 2021- $125 per person


Please note that Individual Registration will close early if capacity is reached. Mid-Winter 2, in particular, has had to do this the past two years. Participants are encouraged to register early.


Additional information for your church group:

  • You must bring at least two adults for every 10 students. If you bring both male and female participants, you must bring at least one male and one female adult. Adults must have completed the 5 steps of MinistrySafe. Adults must be 21 years of age by February 4, 2021, for Mid-Winter #1, or 21 years of age by February 18, 2021, for Mid-Winter #2.

  • No later than 2 weeks prior to the event, you will be required to submit a MinistrySafe Compliance Form via email to StudentMinistry@ctcumc.org, or by mailing to CTCUMC Youth Ministries, 3200 E. Rosedale St., Fort Worth, TX, 76105.

  • The Group Leader is responsible for securing a signed CTC Medical and Liability Release Form for each participant (the link to this form will also be given to each individual participant upon their registration). Glen Lake also requires each participant to complete a Glen Lake Medical Release Form. Neither of these forms requires notarization. Please bring these with you to Mid-Winter to turn in at "Registration Check-In," keeping a copy of each for yourself.

  • Glen Lake Camp can accommodate diabetic, vegetarian, and gluten allergies only. In order to give the camp adequate time to prepare, you must notify StudentMinistry@ctcumc.org no later than Jan. 27, 2021 if any of your participants will require these accommodations. The Glen Lake Dietary Needs form can be found below.
