CYT West Palm Beach is about to enter its inaugural season.
After an enthusiastic response from our Pep Rally in May, we have been moving full speed ahead in anticipation of our summer camp. We have families who are chomping at the bit for the start of our summer camp and fall session. In the midst of the busyness and preparation for this exciting new venture, God decided to show up through the gift of a little girl.
I received a call a little over a week ago from a CYT mom saying that her 10 year old daughter had something to give me. This was a gift that had to be given in person. So we set up a time to meet. Maddie along with her mom and little sister showed up and presented me with her glass piggy bank. For three years Maddie had been saving her allowance in this little piggy bank in order to do bless someone else. She had decided to give her hard-earned money to the CYT West Palm Beach Camper Sponsorship Fund. She wanted to bless another child with the opportunity to attend CYT summer arts camp.
I am thrilled about how the Lord is going to use Maddie’s selfless gift to impact the life of another camper. This is exactly the type of character we want to encourage and develop in kids here at CYT WPB. Way to go Maddie! Thank you for being an example to all of us.

We are happy to announce CYT is coming to West Palm Beach, Florida in 2011!
Rachel Sharpe will serve as Artistic Director. Urging her community to join in on CYT’s thrilling ride, she believes West Palm Beach will never be the same once CYT comes to town. Here is what she told us,
I am so excited to introduce South Florida to CYT! Our team believes that West Palm Beach is primed for an arts program like CYT that provides quality training and upholds Christian values. The Lord is working and we can’t wait to see how He is going to build this program in our area. I am blessed to be a part of a team of passionate individuals who are committed to seeing this dream of mine become a reality.
How can you help? Be a part of this exciting endeavor by helping us spread the word. We are going to need a village of people to make this a resounding success.
