Where high-adventure activities lead to a high-adventure faith

Too many kids believe that church is a chore and God is distant.

Young people of this generation are more likely to lose their faith than ever before: 5 out of 6 will stop practicing their Catholic faith within 10 years of their Confirmation.

We believe that there’s more.

A week at Catholic Youth Summer Camp is a chance for students in grades 6-12 to step away from the distractions of daily life and experience high-adventure activities that lead to a high-adventure faith.

the adventure of life in Christ

Authentically Catholic teachings hit home through the witness of dedicated missionaries

Over the last 20 years, we have witnessed thousands of youth encounter a God who loves them and discover that their Catholic faith is an adventure!

That’s why a day at CYSC is anything but boring. Everything from the High Ropes course to dance parties to the celebration of the Mass is a chance for kids to encounter God and discover how He is inviting them to live the adventure of their faith.



“I felt the presence of God in Adoration. He let me know that I am enough, and at that moment, all my stress and anxiety was gone.”


Camper Parent

"So grateful that you inspired a thirst for Jesus in a reluctant boy who was focused on sports & anything but 'church.' Thank you for showing how great it can be. I’ve seen a huge change in him."



"Before I came to Damascus I was in a very bad place. I felt so alone and that nobody could fix me. But I came with an open heart, and I have never felt so much joy and peace! I have given my life to Jesus because He gave me His."


Camper Parent

"My son had a fantastic time at camp and came home with a deeper faith and understanding of his relationship with Christ. Since coming home he has continued to make prayer a priority and share his experience with others. He was engaged and fully participated in Mass instead of waiting for it to end. His experience has made an impact on the rest of our family and his siblings are all asking to go to camp now."
