Central Washington Catholic Youth Camp

This year's theme:
SET FREE! The Freedom Of Sainthood!

Our Camp has a lot of needs, especially our first year!  Please see the list of requirements below. Perhaps you have an item that you can donate to us. Perhaps you know someone who has it.  Perhaps you would prefer to make a donation, stipulating what it is to be used for. Monetary donations are tax deductible and matched at 100% , up to $15,000 by the Divine Child Institute! We will honor your stipulation. Donors will be honored in our Camper guide, unless you prefer anonymity. Just visit our Home Page and click the "Donate" button.  Thank you for supporting our children!
