Since 1958, CYE has been a place where youth learn to grow into a deeper knowledge of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.  Christian Youth Encampment (CYE) is located in DeRidder, LA on a piece of property known as Ingallwood Park.  It is a non-denominational church camp organization that is operated by a corporation of churches of Christ throughout Louisiana.  Each summer, three weeks of camp are held for various ages with full time staff dedicated to helping campers grow to know Christ. 

Campers are treated to singing praises, studying the Bible, delicious meals, exciting activities, swimming, sports, and ending the night up on the hill in a prayer circle singing "All through the night, all through the night my Savior will be watching over me."

Our Mission

To see the children who attend our camp weeks grow more into the image of God.  We want them "remember the Creator in the days of their youth."

I love this place and I am so thankful that God blessed me with such an awesome place where I made and am still making lifetime friendships and lifelong memories!
— Jacob Trahan, former camper and counselor
