Catholic Youth Camp 2022

Following a very blessed and welcomed launch of CYC 2021, we are looking forward to CYC 2022. It was edifying to see youth ministers and pastors sharing the week with their campers. Inspired by this, and to better ensure year-round discipling and faith formation, please register one youth minister, priest, deacon, religious and/or adult chaperone for every six high school students coming to camp. Your adults will be with your campers and the missionaries when we break into small groups. Sharing in the discussions, prayer and activities creates meaningful memories and a common reference for the pastoral year ahead.
Please note these important dates:
  • October 15-22: Registration begins, session preferences, priority scheduling.
  • December 15, 2021: $100 deposit needed to hold spots.
  • March 1-15, 2022: Missionary application window.
  • March 15, 2022: Last day to drop spots without losing full payment.
  • March 16 - July 13, 2022: We will help parishes and schools wishing to sell or buy spots connect with each other.
  • May 15, 2022: All final balance payments due.
Use buttons below to download registration and medical forms, for more information, and to reserve spots for your parish or school.
