My son "discovered" CYC five years ago. At first, he attended a one week session at camp because it was " FUN". Since then, he has grown to recognize that camp is an opportunity to grow in his faith, learn life skills, and meet lifelong friends. As a parent, I could not be prouder that with all the opporutunities that are available to kids, my son chooses to spend his summer at CYC where he can surround himself with positive role models who share his desire to grow in faith and become better people. Keep up the great work !!!!
