Camp Howard on KGW upcoming!


Nina Mehlhaf, Anchor, KGW News at Sunrise, joined some of the staff at CYO/Camp Howard for a reminiscent trip back to Camp Howard where she experienced a summer of camp.  Nina was able to experience the new Howling Howard zipline in addition to a full tour of the camp and lunch in the new dining hall.  The segment will be aired on Tuesday June 18th at 5:45 and and 6:45 am.  They will be the same version of the story, so you won’t miss anything if you just tune into one of them.  Then the video will go on the KGW website kgw.com with a full text of the story and links to the website to register for summer camp, etc.  Be sure to check it out one way or the other!

October 15 Champions of Faith Benefit Dinner. WOW! I was so impressed with Galen’s strong faith, character and commitment. It was fascinating to hear about his personal journey and I am proud of the role CYO had in his formation.

I encourage you to tune into Mater Dei on April 30 at approximately 7:10 am to hear Galen’s radio interview. You will be inspired to hear his message, and, I pray, motivated to attend our dinner. Come and join Galen and our amazing CYO and Camp Howard supporters and me☺ for a night of faith, inspiration and fun. By attending, you can give every child an opportunity to grow and experience the power of living life through Christian principles. I appreciate your confidence in the work we do at CYO and Camp Howard!
