What do campers do?

CYSC is the premier High Adventure camp experience. And we mean it.
Live the Adventure! It’s our motto. Activities typically include high ropes, paintball, blobbing, archery tag, giant swing, dual zip lines, a 5-story climbing wall, and more!

Interested in an example daily schedule or more information?
Our faith is founded in the Sacramental life of the Catholic Church, but our mission and work is anything but boring.  At CYSC you may come for the jet skis and climbing walls, but you’ll leave with a new Freedom only found in Jesus.

I want to give to everyone the love, joy, and peace I experienced this week. I want to be a witness through my words and actions to my community. I want to live so that even those who don’t know me will see the joy I have, feel the peace I have been given, and know God’s love the way I do.


I encountered Jesus this week through the adventurous activities in which I grew in bravery, confidence, faith, and in trust for God.


I felt very close to God and I felt his presence. I also learned that I didn’t need to be afraid to have a closer relationship with him.


That night it really hit me that Jesus DIED to save ME! I will never be the same, and CYSC is the life-changer! Thank you, CYSC!


I realized that a life without Him brought only sadness, but new life within Him was centered in joy. Jesus is raising a new generation of saints—and I want to be part of it!


I had been struggling with believing God was actually present in the body, but after feeling the power and peace, those doubts no longer exist.


I came here very skeptical, I was really only looking forward to paintball. But after the first mass on the first day, I was filled with a sense of peace and love for God. As the week went on, my faith grew. I would become overwhelmed with emotion during adoration and my resolve was strengthen[ed]. I realized that my job was to light the world on fire.


Before I came here, I didn’t spend much time with God, went to church once a week, and thought other things were more important than Him. At camp, I encountered Jesus in club and at church. I did this through spending time with Him and listening to everything He told me.


I encountered Jesus during club. Before I encountered Jesus I felt kind of empty, I guess you could say. After I encountered Jesus, I felt full. Full of love, full of hope. I felt that I could finally give my all to Jesus and put all of my trust in him.
