Get Involved With CYO

At CYO, we are so grateful for your generous support. Your gifts and donations enable CYO to continue to grow and to serve every child that has a desire to come to camp. We are dedicated to loving and serving our guests as they learn more about walking in a vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ! Your generous support keeps our focus on just that, loving children! Thank you! Your partnership is priceless!

GET INVOLVED . . . Donate!

Partner with us to move from “maintenance to mission” and help to renew our CYO Summer Camps. Because of people like you, we are on the way to becoming one of Michigan’s premier Catholic evangelization ministries, awakening faith and forming missionary disciples!

Here’s how you can help us in the renewal:

Build an “Encounter Environment”
Your donations will go towards the CYO Camp Capital Campaign. Currently, this is our greatest financial need and priority. Unless we raise capital campaign funds, we will not be able to keep up with the mission God is asking of us. Our goal is $75,000 per year for the next 5 years. Help us keep pace with the drive of the Holy Spirit!

Encourage and Engage
Your donations can also help with camperships and keep camp affordable for all by blessing the overall operations of CYO Summer Camp. We do all we can not to have to raise camp fees because we are committed to keeping camp affordable to all families. We also offer our retreat rentals at costs far lower than other retreat facilities because we believe it is important to serve all parishes. Help us keep costs low with a general donation for operations.

Sponsor a Camper
Every year we have students who are unable to attend CYO Summer Camp due to financial limitations. Please consider making a donation to CYO Summer Camp by sponsoring a camper. This is truly the most important part of our ministry, and without your help, it is a need that may not be recognized.

Sponsor a Missionary Disciple
The soul of our camp ministry is our missionary staff. We ask more of our staff in our ministry model of operation and we seek more than just a “summer counselor.” We seek to foster a perspective of passion for ministry and mission work. Please consider supporting our missionaries!
