Feature Friday- The Vandermark Family

Catholic Youth Camp loves getting to know our families! There is no better family to feature first on Feature Fridays than the Vandermarks! Twins Alex & Zach will spend their third summer at CYC this year but also dad Joe serves on our Board of Directors! It’s so important that our Board represents all different parts of CYC Family and Joe does a great job representing the views of our parents! 

Now expecting another CYC camper in June we have calculated that they twins will be LITs once Baby Vandermark is ready to come to camp & we are sure the Alex & Zach will love leading thier younger brother in activities! 

We are so thankful to the Vandermarks as part of our CYC Family! 

Have a Happy Easter!

"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
