Camp Life

CYSC is the premier High Adventure camp filled with activities! High ropes, paintball, blobbing, archery tag, giant swing, dual zip lines, a 5-story climbing wall, and more! Explore them all! Our faith is founded in the sacramental life of the Catholic Church, but our mission and work is anything but boring.
