In-Person Participation

For those ready to gather in person, we look forward to seeing you in Indianapolis. As you may suspect, this year will look a bit different from prior years, but what should be unmistakable in the experience is our commitment to the NCYC mission: to provide a distinctly Catholic environment in which participants are invited to encounter Christ, experience Church, and be empowered for discipleship.

Hotel Request Process

You may request hotel rooms at the time of ticket request, regardless of the number of tickets purchased or rooms needed, or at a later date. To qualify for the NCYC group rate, hotels generally require a three-night stay—Thursday to Sunday. Using NCYC block hotel rooms helps to underwrite the cost of convention center and stadium rental.

When to Request Rooms

NFCYM prefers that you request/reserve hotel rooms immediately following ticket purchase, but if that is not possible, you may return to request rooms later. We anticipate having enough rooms in our block to accommodate all participant requests, but availability will become more limited the closer we get to November.

Requesting Rooms

If you did not complete a hotel request at the time of your ticket purchase, use the button below that corresponds to the number of rooms you need per night

10 or fewer rooms per night

You will need:

  1. Check-in/out dates
  2. A valid credit card number with expiration date.

The credit card will not be charged until check-in, when another valid form of payment may be substituted, or in the case of a no-show.

11 or more rooms per night

You will need to know:

  1. Number and type (one bed/two beds) of rooms needed
  2. Arrival and departure dates
  3. Your top 3-5 preferred hotels in the NCYC block
  4. Criteria (i.e. location, rate, meeting space, breakfast, parking) to be used if your preferred hotels isn’t available

Every effort will be made to place you in one of your top five selections. If those hotels are no longer available or cannot accommodate your number, your criteria will be used to suggest appropriate alternatives. Deposits will need to be made directly with the hotel once you have your assignment. These are not generally due immediately, but should be made on a timeline agreed upon between you and the representative from your assigned hotel.

Confirmation of Room Request

If you reserved 10 or fewer rooms per night, you will receive an email confirmation shortly after submission. 

If you requested 11 or more rooms per night, you will immediately receive an email notification that your request has been received. Once your hotel placement is made, you will receive an email confirmation. This may take up to 15 business days. 

Meal Options

After completing your in-person ticket purchase, you will receive a link in your confirmation email to purchase optional boxed meals and/or prepaid gift cards for use at ICCLOS concession stands. Orders must be placed and paid for by Sunday, November 14. Check payments may be made using a paper order form mailed to the exclusive concessionaire, Centerplate.
