Rhonda Shelby’s Camp Howard Endorsement!


My heart was warmed by Rhonda’s description of the unique spiritual atmosphere at Camp Howard and how that atmosphere creates such a special experience for campers. Rhonda ‘s daughter has loved every minute of her CYO Volleyball experience. Rhonda has cheered for the team and volunteered to run the scoreboard at her games.

Thank you Rhonda and all of the amazing CYO and Camp Howard volunteers and supporters! You make great memories possible for our youth.

The New Face of CYO Youth Football


Youth participation is up by nearly 150 participants for the first time in 10 years as CYO moves to implement a new design for youth football replacing Tackle with flag while dressed in full uniform.

This new formula is nothing new to CYO as the third and fourth grade program operated the same way for many years.  Today 1st grade through 6th graders in the CYO program play a modified “no tackle” game with variations at each grade level.

Scott Kneefel is the CYO Director of youth football http://www.cyocamphoward.org
