A Day in the Life of an ECYD Camper


At camp boys ages 10-17 will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun and formative activities. They will enjoy prayer and spiritual growth through participation in Mass, spiritual talks and Confession. Sports, games, workshops, team dynamics, exciting night activities, swimming and fun in the sun, are typical ECYD camp activities. To find out what activities are offered at specific camps, visit the local camp websites or download the local camp flyer. Our camp staff is made up of a wonderful team of teen camp counselors and skilled adult volunteers. Dads are always encouraged to volunteer and participate with their son(s)!
