Registration for Summer 2019 opens October 1, 2018! Stay tuned for the announcement of the St Brendan week of camp!

For the second year, CYSC is offering a “Winter Camp”. Spots are limited and the middle school weekend of Winter Camp is January 18-20. Follow this link  and read the following message from CYSC to find out more info!

Every year camper families ask what else they can be doing to go deeper in their relationship with God.  This is our next step.

High Adventure Activities

Living the Adventure is not simply a summer-time thing.  We live the adventure every day at Damascus Catholic Mission Campus.  This will be a power packed weekend filled with powerful activities.

High Adventure Faith

Jesus alone calls us to bear fruit even out of season. The faith encounter built at Catholic Youth Summer Camp should bear fruit in every season, not just one week a year.  Experience what it means to be called deeper into mission.
