CDYC exists to engage students with God and others, through defining moments, real community, and intentional fun.
Since 1973 CDYC has been seeking to engage students for one week to set them up for the 51 other weeks of the year. In this time, students have continually found themselves immersed in loads of fun, memories that have lasted a life time, connections with God and with friends that have altered the trajectories of their lives.
Every year, at both Middle School Camp and High School Camp, we seek to create space and defining moments for youth groups to find identity, real community and the opportunity to engage with each other. We believe in the local church and we believe in the local youth ministry of that church to equip students for all that Jesus has in store.
We believe that students have a greater purpose than just existing in their youth groups. That the trajectory that Jesus has them on is for His purpose and that is way bigger than an event, conference or season of their lives.
By engaging students with projects that are larger than their own strength and equipping students with ideas and tools we seek to fuel a students faith in Jesus that goes beyond their youth group days. We accomplish this through content and activities that stretch the mind, the heart, and the imagination of every student who attends our camps.
