    CYC

    Did anyone ever go to this camp as a kid? It's pretty awesome.

    Re: CYC

    I'm actually going to be media specialist for CYC Minnesota this summer. My gf talks about it all the time since she went there as a kid and has been a camp counselor/administrative assistant the last few years, and she just absolutely loves it.

    It's OK. The director is a dork.

    If you go with people you know, it's pretty fun.

    I think you'll like it, coming from the fact that I don't know you. I know that I like it. Although, we as counselors broke the rules for our kids (we had a "war" with another cabin). It was insane, we took Axe spray bottles and duct tape, and threw them in the other cabin. This was all at 3 AM

    Last year was my first year as a counselor. This was the one in Iowa. I bet the Minnesota one will be good too.

    Re: CYC

    Catholic Youth Camp Minnesota actually has no affiliation with CYC Iowa.... they just happen to have the same name. I went to Iowa as a kid and counseled there for about 4 years. I have worked at the Minnesota camp for the past 3 summers, this summer being my 4th- where they have full time staff and counselors.

    As for the director, CYC Iowa has a new Executive Director- Beth Ashby this year, but they do have weekly directors- those are probably the goofy ones you are talking about!

    Overall both camps are fun, but offer different types of experiences.

    They have 1 full time director and 2 weekly directors, yes. The weekly directors are pretty strange...
