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

The youth leaders at Camp Howard for the summer session 2017 have been one of the very best teams of leaders in my 20 years with the camp. Their development as individuals, willingness to work with one another, ability to lead and inspire have been the ingredients that have made this one of the best seasons on record.

April 12, 2017 CYO/CH…The lasertag and paintball courses have been redone at Camp Howard this winter by Ashtien King, Assistant to the Property Director. Ashtien is no stranger to either sport and has put his own personal touch on the stations.
The Paintball range has moved to a location below Aldergrove Unit which will be exciting for the kids.
A new laser tag shed is under construction to store the materials in during the summer. Campers age 11 and up are eligible to participate in the laser tag program at Camp Howard.
