Catholic Youth Camp

Catholic Youth Camp is a 6-day co-ed, residential, recreational, faith-building retreat for parish and school youth groups. Our goal is to enhance relationships ... above all with Jesus Christ, but also between the high school teens themselves and with the adult ministers who will disciple their campers throughout the year. Registration is done through the youth and campus ministers of participating Catholic parishes and schools.
