From the Director

We must prepare the child for the road, not the road for the child.

I find that phrase incredibly challenging. I don’t want my sons to struggle- I want to protect them from the difficulties ahead. But it is not my job to make the road less bumpy, rather it is my job to teach them the life skills they will need to navigate future obstacles.

Sending your child away for a week is a difficult choice! But camp is where our children learn to navigate the world without parents there to make it easier.

Your child’s safety (both physical and emotional) is our number one priority. I want to work with you to build resilient, capable, intelligent kids. At CYC, we provide fun activities, a community where everyone is valued and the opportunity to grow in faith. Through all of that, campers build independence, confidence, and develop problem-solving skills.

Kids will come home from CYC talking about what a fun time they had. Parents can feel good about giving children a place to grow. Thank you for trusting us with your child.

Catholic Youth Camp changes lives. In choosing CYC, you are making an investment in your child, because camp is more than just a week of fun. During their time at camp, your child will be part of a community that not only plays together, but also prays together. Camp is an opportunity for campers to build their self esteem, develop life skills, and make friends. At CYC, we do those things in a faith-centered environment, which makes us the ideal choice for your child.

Please check out our website, send me an email or call me to talk more about how your child would fit at Catholic Youth Camp. I look forward to talking with you soon!

Campingly Yours,

Natalie King, Executive Director, Catholic Youth Camp

"CYC is a great place to have fun, make friends, and share your faith. At camp, you can make a new friend almost anywhere like during activities, around the campfire, or in your cabin. If you get homesick, you’ll have nice friends and understanding counselors to help you out. You won’t need to worry about it too much because you’ll be having fun all day. No matter where you are, fishing, swimming, or playing soccer, you’ll be having a great time. CYC rocks!" - Joe
