Catholic Youth Summer Camp is a program of Damascus. When a permanent home was built to serve as a permanent home for CYSC in Centerburg, OH, Damascus was founded in 2015 as a year-round retreat and conference center with a community of full-time missionaries providing an environment of encounter for thousands of people of all ages.
During the summers, a larger team of missionaries serve as counselors, activity facilitators, kitchen staff, and everything else that goes into an unforgettable week of camp. In 2024 CYSC will operate in 3 locations: Main Campus (OH), Northwoods (WI), and Great Lakes (MI).
Our Lady of the Fields will offer newly a renovated dining hall, welcome center, and cabins, in addition to a beautiful existing chapel. Check out the visual overview of the property in this video!
Great Lakes activities in 2024 will include a high ropes challenge course, paintball, giant swing, climbing activities, water obstacle course, and archery tag.
