Sunday of Sampler Week

It’s Sampler Week! Campers arrived excited and ready to be at camp! There were a few clouds, but nothing could put a damper on our first day. Once everyone’s parents dropped them off or they got off the bus, we headed to our Friendship Circle for some songs and an exciting pepfest to introduce the CYC staff. And then it was time to divide into cabin groups. From there, campers grabbed their belongings and moved into their cabins.

Dinner was spaghetti, broccoli, garlic bread, and rice krispie treats! Yum!

After dinner, cabins toured around camp, played “get to know ya” games and signed up for activities for the rest of the week. After that, it was time for our opening campfire where we kicked off the week with some delicious s’mores!

Following the campfire, we headed to the chapel for Holy Ground and Praise and Worship. During Holy Ground, we discussed our first of the five Cs: courage. After Praise and Worship, our campers left the chapel and entered into cabin devotionals to end an exciting day before heading off to Sweeney to get ready for bed. We can’t wait for a full day of camp activities tomorrow!

"To me Catholic Youth Camp is a place I can be myself and know others will not judge me. Plus it is a place where I can learn more about my religion and proclaim it to the world freely." - JP
