The campers will be split and housed according to gender. No campers are allowed on the opposite gender’s floor (zero tolerance policy).  Campers will be housed in proximity to their Counselors, Assistant Counselors and Advisor.  We strongly believe in campers making new friends and therefore aim to pair new campers with returning campers.

Q: What do the fees cover?

Your registration fee covers 5 days and 4 nights of dorm lodging, 3 meals a day plus evening snacks, a rich & culturally immersive class curriculum taught by professional teachers, and fun bonding activities in the evenings designed to teach teamwork and boost your camper’s confidence.  With a ratio of 5-6 camper per Counselor/Staff, we aim to create a safe environment that fosters friendships, creates opportunities for leadership, and reminds the next generation of our cultural heritage.

Wait List FAQ:
If registration is closed, does that mean I cannot attend camp?
Spots do 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 acknowledging the receipt of your submission. You will not need to do anything further unless you are contacted by our Registrar about an open spot at camp. Our Staff work full time outside of camp and openings are outside the Staff control. Please do not call 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 ONCE a spot opens up. We cannot give you a 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?
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, registrations are non-transferrable.  Registered spots cannot be swapped with other siblings, relatives, or friends who are on 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 amount of donation will guarantee a camper spot as we believe all campers should be given a fair opportunity to attend camp.

CYC is completely volunteer run by a group of young professionals who attended CYC 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!
