Summer Camp Information 2010

At CYO summer camp each day becomes an adventure and each adventure is part of a larger journey. From young child to young adult, CYO has had a lasting impact on the personal, social and spiritual growth of thousands of people for over fifty years. Join us for the journey this summer!

“The best thing CYO does is to allow kids to simply enjoy life without all the outside problems society brings to the world. CYO gives children the opportunity to explore their faith, make new friends, and to find and strengthen their own individual gifts in a nurturing and safe environment.”

“When she got off the bus, she burst into tears because it was over. She said she had 'been herself' at camp and 'everyone loved me.' It just doesn't get much better than that.”

“I think spirituality is a vital part of the CYO camp experience, so I was glad that my daughter mentioned talks with counselors, Mass, and prayer time as things she enjoyed while at camp!!”

“Our son has always had a very strong understanding of his faith and spirituality, but it was good for him to find a place where it was acceptable to share his faith. Gallagher is a place where 'it's cool to believe in God.'”

The American Camp Association (ACA) has more than 300 standards by which they measure camp excellence. CYO camps consistently pass onsite accreditation visits by the ACA and we meet or exceed standards in all areas: health and safety, program quality, transportation, food service, site management and qualifications of staff.
