Youth Programs

With programs rich in tradition, CYO Summer Camp creates an environment where youth can explore the world around them and develop powerful friendships that will last a lifetime. Summer days are filled with a large variety of activities including swimming, hiking, archery, soul food, tie-dye, gaga ball, sports, and canoeing. CYO Summer Camp staff host exciting evening programs such as talent shows, campfires, dances, and sleeping under the stars. Each day campers are invited to select activities that fit their individual interests. Every camper will experience an off-site excursion to either the Sonoma Coast or a local nature reserve. Age appropriate Villages ensure that your child will have the opportunity to create a community with kids their own age in a safe and healthy environment.

Huckleberry Day Camp (6-11)

Huckleberry Day Camp offers youth in our local community the opportunity to take advantage of our beautiful property and facilities while engaging in physical activities (soccer, basketball, volleyball, hiking, camp games), environmental education (experiential nature hikes, gardening, nature games such as predator prey), and traditional camp activities (gaga ball, archery, swimming, canoeing, and arts & crafts).

Huckleberry Day Camp’s affordable tuition includes all activities, lunch, two snacks each day, and a field trip to the Sonoma Coast.

Campers benefit from the dedicated leadership staff and counselors that are the cornerstone of CYO Camp’s success. Staff members share their talents with campers by designing unique activities that engage, entertain and educate while balancing fun, friendship, environmental stewardship, responsibility, respect and trust.

Huckleberry Day Camp offers six 5-day sessions of camp for children entering grades 1-6.

Freestone (ages 8-10)

Named for a nearby town, Freestone is where the fun begins. Whether they’re experiencing a week away from home for the first time or the third time, Freestone campers grow unexpectedly and go beyond what they thought was possible.

Middle Earth (ages 10-12)

Middle Earth is the place where campers explore their role as a steward of their community and our planet. Activities allow their interpersonal skills to flourish in this rich environment while fostering a sense of wonder and a deeper connection to nature.

 

Wildwood (ages 12-14)

Team building activities, leadership development, and a community rich in tradition are all part of the unforgettable experience of Wildwood. Campers deepen their understanding of themselves, others, nature, and God in this dynamic environment.

 

Stepping Stone (ages 15-17)

On the historic Miwok side of CYO Camp, teens reconnect with themselves as they unplug from modern technology and take a break from the fast pace of their everyday lives. The last “step” before taking on a leadership role, Stepping Stone campers celebrate diversity while discovering their true selves.  Each session features an off-site excursion to the Russian River.
