There are many ways that individuals or groups can get involved with CYC.
Host a CYC recruiting party in your home. Invite friends, neighbors or other parents who are interested in learning more about CYC. A CYC staff member will come to the party, show a dvd, provide information about camp and answers questions about why CYC is a great camp. Call or email to set up a party!
Each summer, we have over 200 kids come to camp on full or partial scholarship. While camp is paid for, they need supplies such as sleeping bags, flashlights, travel toiletries, money for the camp store, etc. This is a great large or small group opportunity. We will provide the care package check list and we encourage groups to personalize with a letter to the camper or a unique welcome gift.
Sponsor a Camper
The philosophy of CYC is that no child will ever be turned away from camp for financial reasons. The reality is that each year more and more families are seeking financial assistance. You can help us ensure that no child is turned away. Help us send us a kid to camp by covering the camp fee $420, transportation fee $70 and camp store $10.
Work Weekend (Fall and Spring)
Groups are welcome to schedule a work weekend during the Fall or Spring. Groups will stay at CYC and help work on projects around camp, such as painting, cleaning, winterizing (in the Fall), or helping prepare for the Summer (in the Spring).
One youth group adopted CYC and each year provides a major project for the camp. Most recently this group built new bunk bed frames for the camp. Through a generous donation of materials the group worked at their parish building the components. The components were delivered to camp where the group spent a weekend completing the assembly process. Projects can be as large or small as you would like to take on.
