What Is CYC?

What is CYC?

Houston Chinese Youth Camp is a 501c3 non-profit organization that hosts an overnight 5-7 day summer camp where students ages 8-18 can learn about Chinese heritage, gain leadership, and build lifelong friendships. Throughout the day, campers attend classes taught by experienced teachers on different aspects of the Chinese culture, such as:

– Dragon Dance
– Chinese Yo-yo
– Folk Dance
– Chinese Dodgeball
– Chinese Arts & Crafts

In the evening, various activities are held, such as a Chinese dodgeball tournament, talent show, dance party, mini-Olympics, just to name a few. We welcome anyone to attend camp, regardless of whether or not they are of Asian-American descent!

To read more about the check in process, what to bring, and more, you can read the CYC 2018 Camper Information Packet.  Please note this WILL be updated every year, but the basic information will remain the same.

CYC is completely volunteer run by a group of young professionals who attended CYC 20+ years ago and came back to volunteer for the love of camp.  

Due to the fact our managers, teachers and staff all work full time, we thank you for your understanding and patience when communicating with us via phone or email.  Please leave us a detailed message (email prefered) and we will do our best to get to you ASAP!
