Q: What are the ages of campers allowed to attend CYC?

A: No. All children of qualifying age are welcome to attend CYC.
不需要. 所有符合年齡限制的兒童或青少年都歡迎參加 CYC.

Q: How are the campers organized into groups?

A: There are usually 12 groups organized according to age. Each group has 20-22 campers, 2 assistant counselors, 2 counselors, and one advisor (adult chaperone). In 2022, there will be 4 groups organized according to age. For logistical and optimal learning purposes, campers will be organized by age and/or grade and we are unable to grant group requests. 

Q: How prepared is the camp staff for medical emergencies?

A: Certified nurses and doctors will be available 24-7 throughout the entire duration of camp.
除此之外, 兩名具有證照的護士將於營隊期間(一星期)在宿舍及活動時全程待命.

Q: How is housing organized?

The campers will be split according to gender. No campers are allowed on the opposite gender’s floor. There is a no tolerance policy.  Additionally, the campers will be living in the same hallway as their counselors, assistant counselors and advisor.  We are unable to grant room requests – we DO try to pair new campers with returning campers and strongly believe in campers making new friends.
所有學員會被安排到宿舍. 根據學員性別, 所有學員被分派到不同樓層. 每個學員只能與同性別的其他學員同住. 除此之外, 學員將會與其輔導員, 助理輔導員及督導住在同一個廊區.

Wait List FAQ:
If registration is closed, does that mean I cannot attend camp?
No, but spots for camp will only open up if a registered camper can no longer attend camp. Please complete the Wait List Form ASAP if you are interested!
What do I do after I complete the Wait List Form?
Once you complete the Wait List Form, you will receive a confirmation email. You will not need to do anything further unless you are contacted by our Registrar about an open spot at camp. Our staff works full time outside of camp, so please do not call, email, or message to ask if spots are opening up.
When will the Registrar contact me if there is an open spot?
Our Registrar will only contact Wait List applicants in the order of their application ONCE a spot opens up. We cannot give you a guaranteed time you will be contacted as we will not know ahead of time.
If I pay ASAP, do I automatically get a spot to camp?
No, you will not be able to complete your payment unless a spot opens up and our Registrar contacts you. Attempting to pay without an open spot will render your registration invalid and your payment will be refunded.
I’ve been going to camp every year! I can’t miss it this year! Can I get priority since I’m a returning camper?
No, while we understand your concerns, to be fair to all applicants, the opportunity to register will be given in the order of the Wait List Form.
My friend has registered for camp, but can no longer attend. Can I skip to the front of the Wait List and take his/her spot at camp?
No, while this may be easier for you and your friend, registered spots cannot be swapped with other siblings, relatives, or friends who are on the Wait List. We have many campers who want to attend camp and we cannot give any exceptions other than doing what is fair and right, so we will be going in the order of the Wait List.
If I donate money to CYC, will that increase my chances into camp? Does any amount of donation guarantee a spot at camp?
No, unfortunately, no amount of donation will guarantee a camper spot as we believe all campers should be given a fair opportunity to attend camp. We appreciate your support and willingness to donate as the generosity and support of individuals like you. With your help we can keep costs low for campers while providing a high quiality of programming year after year.

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 during the work week.  Please leave us a detailed message (email preferred) and we will do our best to get to you ASAP!
