Outdoor programs such as a field trip to CYO Camp provide an opportunity to enable people to connect with each other while they live and play together at camp. In addition, they gain respect for themselves, each other, and the natural world through experiences that don’t happen at school or home. A field trip to CYO Camp sets the stage for relationship building and group members bonding through this shared time. We partner with YOU to create a hands-on experience that can strengthen the sense of friendship and connection.
These experiential education programs are designed for students to have hands-on activities in nature. The diverse range of programs offered are designed to be interactive, thought provoking, and challenging in nature, while meeting certain state standards for teaching in the process. Our staff is well trained, knowledgeable, energetic, courteous, and ready to serve.
Leadership Training at CYO Camp is transformational. Participants learn to be role models peers by learning how to …communicate effectively, listen to others, formulate an opinion, navigate the waves of change, remain fluid and flexible and how to reach a consensus while still holding true to their beliefs.
Leadership Training challenges individuals physically, mentally, and emotionally as they learn to lead with compassion and humility.
