Owen Wilson WAS at Camp Howard

News reports of sightings of Owen Wilson in Portland were correct as he was here to shoot a segment for Documentary Now shot at Camp Howard June 14 – 18, 2018.  The film will be shown in January.  If you are not familiar with Documentary Now, they put short spoofs together of real documentaries where they poke a little fun (kindly) on various themes.

The segment shot at Camp Howard has to do with a cult coming to a small town, similar to what happened in Central Oregon in the early 1980’s.  See if you can figure out the role Wilson played.

After the “shoot” he came to the camp dining hall to meet the leadership staff of Camp Howard which was a very kind gesture!  The staff was thrilled to say the least to have the opportunity to meet Owen Wilson and I am sure it will be one of the top highlights of their summer!


Camp Howard Volleyball Camp NCAA National Champion Player to Coach

The CYO/Camp Howard Volleyball Camp is led by Patty Jayne.  She is a current CYO coach at St. Joseph in Vancouver.  In addition to this current coaching position, Patty has also coached at the high school and collegiate level.  Patty was also a member of the 1988 Portland State NCAA National Championship Team.  Patty loves the game of volleyball and it shows.

Over the course of the weekend, the campers will be divided by age to work on the fundamentals of the game, including passing, setting, hitting and serving.  Patty incorporates numerous games so the players are having fun and learning the game.  In addition to learning volleyball skills, the players will also engage in camp activities such as arts & crafts, swimming, visiting the camp store, giant swing/zip line (for campers 13 yrs. and older) and archery.  The kids will sleep in cabins and enjoy camp fires, as well.

The camp is from Thursday, June 28th through Sunday, July 1st.  Registration is open on our website at http://www.cyocamphoward.org/camphoward

Ed Kluss, Executive Board President, CYO/Camp Howard, Receives Appreciation

From the Script:

Ed Kluss

Mr. Ed Kluss CYO/Camp Howard Executive Board was led by Ed Kluss again this year.  Ed is the Vice President of Umpqua Bank.  He has been especially helpful to me this year with some of the historic gifts CYO/Camp Howard has received.  It is great to have a good banker in the house!  Ed has been indispensable working with the Catholic Charities Board, on behalf of CYO/CH.  Ed is very detailed, precise, humorous and enjoys a good laugh. 

I would like to award our Spirit of CYO award to Ed Kluss for his great work with the Executive Board.

From the Script:

“October 9th will be the date of our 8th Champions of Faith benefit Dinners – can you believe it?  We have had some really great people step up to lend their good names to chair the dinners – Werner & Colleen Nistler, Sean & Sheri Dooney, Judy Winczewski, Bob & Kathleen Burtchaell and this past year, we had George and Tammy Weivoda.  George has served for many years as a coach, Basketball Commission member and basketball commission chair.  I called him last year and asked him if he and Tammy would be willing to step up and help us out as chairs of the dinner last year and they said “Yes”.  We could not be more pleased with the great job they did helping us spread the word about CYO and Camp Howard.

  • We would like to say thank you, George & Tammy, for your service this past year as chairs of our dinner! God bless you both!”
