Capital District Youth for Christ runs on donations from people like you.


Since 1988, Capital District Youth for Christ has hosted youth conferences in Saratoga Springs, NY. With the help of hundreds of volunteers and staff, the EXCEL High School Conference is held each January and the BREAK OUT Middle School Conference each March. Attendance from 3 states and many denominations brings over 1,500 students and leaders each year.

EXCEL and BREAK OUT are fast paced, exhilarating weekends featuring inspiring Christian musical guests, drama, comedy, and motivational speakers from all over the country. Leaders and students enjoy spiritually charged assemblies, worship and seminars that address tough issues facing today’s teens. Year after year, these conferences have become “mountaintop” life-changing experiences for many students, youth groups and their leaders.
