Chaldean Youth Camp, or CYC for short, is a summer camp program containing a variety of traditional camp activities such as sports, team building activities, art projects, campfires, and indoor games, while at the same time promoting the values and ideals of the Chaldean Catholic Church.

The program is designed within the Catholic Church structure giving your child the opportunity to meet new friends within our community, while participating in activities that will form them into virtuous Catholic leaders in a fun and engaging environment.

One of the goals that we would like to accomplish for this year’s camp is to recognize that we can have fun and love Jesus at the same time! Through the grace of God, we hope to build community, camaraderie, and faith. The day will consist of prayer, activities, sports, spiritual talks, and of course food.

For the summer of 2024, Our Lady of the Fields Camp & Retreat Center will be hosting three Catholic football retreats.

These camps will be led by the Our Lady of the Fields staff alongside Coaches from the Catholic League and CYO. A healthy and high-protein lunch and dinner will be provided for each camper as part of the camp fee. There will be two levels of camps:

“3F” - Faith, Fun, and Football - Catholic Football Camp For rising 5th to rising 8th graders

2024 Dates and Rates Coming Soon! 

“3FL” - Faith, Fun, Football, and Leadership For rising 9th and 10th graders

2024 Dates and Rates Coming Soon! 

The goal of both “3F” and “3FL” is to help form young men, who love the sport of football, to grow in their skills and abilities, but do so in a way that includes the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit in every aspect of their lives – both on and off the field.


The “FAITH” component of these camps will revolve around a Mass celebrated in our own church, here on camp grounds, as well as spiritually-themed group discussions about how to put our faith into practice in our daily lives.


The “FUN” component of these camps will come from time spent on our climbing tower, our zip lines, our inflatable water trampolines and water slides, our kayaks and canoes, and riding around Euler Lake in our brand new luxury pontoon boat.


The “FOOTBALL” component of these camps will focus heavily on skill improvement, instruction, conditioning, and lessons on how to be the best teammate possible.


The “LEADERSHIP” component of the camps for the high school students (“3FL”) will come from specially designed team challenges and initiatives that have real-world applications for football players. Campers will have opportunities to step up in situations that require quick decision making, risk assessment, self-confidence, and the ability to execute a plan successfully.
