CYO Summer Camp

Huckleberry Day Camp

Why Choose Huckleberry Day Camp?

This five-day program offers youth ages 6-11 in our local community the opportunity to take advantage of our beautiful 216 acre Occidental property.  Campers have oppotunities to try new things, make life-long friends, trust in their peers, and build relationships with amazing counselors.  We are able to provide all of this through a diverse set of program activities, special theme days, and daily group reflections called “soul foods”.  Your child can have a chance to grow emotionally and physically in a supportive community of peers and adult leaders. CYO Camp is the only resident and day camp program in West Sonoma County that is accredited by the American Camp Association.

 

Our Camp Philosophy 
At CYO Camp, we focus more on growth and learning than just doing activities.  We teach social intelligence, self-control, gratitude, grit, curiosity, optimism and zest.  Being a part of a camp group with lots of new faces builds social intelligence, gives campers a greater ability to find solutions in conflicts with others.  Trying new activities grows curiosity, teaches kids how to ask questions and helps them be even more eager to explore new things.

CYO Camp offers an unequaled variety of opportunities to develop well-rounded youth. At camp, we encourage “dabbling” rather than expertise. Throughout the day, our campers learn about, explore, and participate in the widest variety of activities, expanding their horizons and cultivating a desire to try new things.

We focus on preparing children for future success. Companies like Google, Apple, and Disney have identified the skills they’re looking for in the 21st century: creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication. At CYO Camp, our staff teaches these things at every activity. While your child is having fun, they’ll be gaining an advantage for life!

Camp leads the way in using the best methods to help children learn and grow. Kids learn best by doing, and CYO Camp helps our campers grow by involving them in high-interest activities, practicing new skills through hands-on discovery in small groups.
