Summer Staff

"CYC to me is a fun, uplifting, and spiritual camp for kids of all ages. Every morning there I wake up with a smile on my face, and I am like “ YESSSSS I’m still here!!!” I never want to leave. CYC has outrageous counselors there that give courage to be yourself and to love and adore God!" - Isabel
