Birthday Bash Monday

The Birthday Bash has been a blast today at Catholic Youth Camp. We began the day at 7:15 a.m. with Polar Bear Plunge in the lake, where our early birds chose to jump off of the docks before getting ready for breakfast. Following french toast sticks and fruit, we headed to the chapel to begin our day with the raising of the flag and Holy Ground.

Holy Ground

During Holy Ground, counselor Natalie discussed our second C of the week: community. We have an amazing community here at CYC, and our campers have done so many fun things today to make their cabin communities special! Our cabins headed to cabin activities after Holy Ground, where they participated in a variety of activities: swimming, arts and crafts, sponge dodgeball, paddle boarding, and sports.


Arts and Crafts

Paddle Boarding

After a fun morning of cabin activities, our campers came together to tie-die t-shirts and paint their cabin flags. As they painted their flags, they came up with mascots, themes, cheers, and songs to build their cabin communities. The cabin spirit is on fire this week. The B1 girls cabin, in honor of Birthday Bash, dressed as babies today. They plan to grow up some each day and end the week as grandparents!

After lunch, our campers spent their afternoons in their chosen individual activities. Here, the campers got to have fun outdoors practicing many skills: rangers, archery, canoeing, kayaking, drama, and many other exciting activities. Later in the evening, the entire camp came together for a game of Angels and Demons before ending the day with a wonderful night of Praise and Worship.
