Cascade Youth Camps 

{ CYC }


I'm sorry to announce that Camps are cancelled for 2020.

We're looking forward to big things in the future.


About Us

Cascade Youth Camps are FREE summer camps, designed for at risk and foster youth, ages 12-17, in Central Oregon. Our goal is to encourage, support and give these precious kids hope for their future.  We have a faith based approach, which includes a whole lot of fun, hanging out, and activities to keep everyone engaged.  Activities might include: Kayaking, swimming, archery, arts/crafts, sports, games, fishing, challenge course, lip sync competitions, and more! We have camps specifically for boys and camps for girls during the summer and co-ed group activities throughout the rest of the year.


CYC Volunteer Training

Equipping our  Team for the Camp Experience

Our annual training helps equip each volunteer with the tools they may need to help each and every person at camp. We talk about how to handle conflict, team building, and the importance of safety in a super fun environment. We try to answer any questions and dispel concerns, so that when they come to camp, our staff are prepared to positively impact the lives of our campers.  The goal is to help them be equipped to provide a safe and positive experience for our campers and counselors alike.


"Be the Change you Wish to see in the World"

Our camps are run by volunteers who have a heart to give their time and energy making a difference in the lives of the campers. All of our volunteers are required to fill out an application, be interviewed, have a background check, and attend annual training. 

Volunteer roles include: nurse, therapist, camp counselors, activity coordinator, challenge course facilitators, photographers, arts/crafts, musician, and other support staff roles.


Summer Camps

Our 3 day/2night summer camps are designed for at risk and foster youth, ages 12-17, in Central Oregon.  We offer FREE single gender camps, with a 2:1 ratio of campers to counselors. All of our counselors and staff are trained and screened to ensure we provide a safe and encouraging camp experience, where each youth will be valued and supported. Our goal is that every kid who comes to camp has a blast, feels valued and supported. It is our goal to give each camper renewed hope for their future.

Cascade Youth Camps are funded by people who care- individuals and businesses in our community. These amazing people want to make a difference in the lives of kids who are too easily forgotten! You can help too by becoming a volunteer to help out at camp or donating financially towards the cost to make it possible. We estimate that it cost about $350/camper for summer camp, which is about $30/month. Your support is GREATLY appreciated, and it changes lives!
