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

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 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.

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!
