Campers FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions – Campers

What kinds of activities do we do at camp?

CYC has a variety of activities for you to choose from: archery, sling shots, hatchet throwing, arts and crafts, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, paddle boats, paddle boards, dance, drama, sports, swimming, choir and nature! Check out the “Activities” section of the website for more details. That doesn’t include our all camp programming like the CYC classic Angels and Demons, tie-dye, crazy relays, beach parties, and more! Each week is a little different; there might be a Christmas themed lunch or surprise skits from the counselors. You never know what kind of crazy things staff and campers alike will come up with to make your time unique!

Can I be in the same cabin as my friend from home?

Yes. Be sure to list your friend(s) in the designated “buddy request” section on your registration form. If you have questions or concerns after registration, have your parent/guardian contact the office.

Can my friends who aren’t Catholic come to CYC?

Yes! We welcome youth of all backgrounds to CYC. All campers go to daily praise and worship and the weekly prayer service, regardless of faith.

Can I bring my cell phone, iPod, video game, or other electronic gadget to camp?

No. We ask that you leave these items at home. You will be very busy at camp and won’t find time to use them. Plus, sometimes cabins get messy and it can be difficult to keep track of expensive things. CYC is not responsible for lost or broken items, so leave those things at home!

What should I bring to camp?

You will get a packing list when you sign up for camp that reminds you to bring shorts, tee shirts, socks, pjs, etc. You should also bring a positive attitude, curiosity, creativity and a willingness to try new things and make new friends!

What kind of food do you serve at camp?

Meals are served buffet style, so you can choose what items and how much of each food you would like. We have a salad bar at lunch and dinner as well. See below for a sample menu. Please call the office with any dietary concerns or special needs.

"CYC is a great place to have fun, make friends, and share your faith. At camp, you can make a new friend almost anywhere like during activities, around the campfire, or in your cabin. If you get homesick, you’ll have nice friends and understanding counselors to help you out. You won’t need to worry about it too much because you’ll be having fun all day. No matter where you are, fishing, swimming, or playing soccer, you’ll be having a great time. CYC rocks!" - Joe
