Capital Campaign



The 2020 Strategic Plan is key to the expansion and enhancement of our facilities.  We rely on the pledges and donations of our supporters for Camp to reach its potential.

While this campaign does fund the construction of new buildings, like our Experiential Learning Center, it’s also important for our less visible investments. Our camp communication system, our environmental upgrades, and the renovation of our dining hall roof could all potentially be sponsored.

Our Board has a no debt policy, meaning that Capital Projects are started after we have cash or pledges to cover the building costs. This helps us ensure that Camp stays fiscally responsible. Below are current projects in the pipeline:

Retreat Village

The new Retreat Village will include four modern buildings and provide Camp with 24 new rooms. During the summer, the Retreat Village enables CYJ to expand its housing sufficiently so that we can grow our teen program. Year-round, the new facility becomes a tremendous asset to our Retreat Center as it gives us flexibility in hosting multiple groups. Sleek landscaping, shade structures, picnic tables, and a fire pit site will provide a natural place to congregate and build community.

Camper Sports Center

The new 12,000 square foot Camper Sports Center will enable CYJ to significantly increase and diversify its current athletic program. This covered space will include dedicated areas for basketball, soccer, volleyball, and floor hockey. Playing sports at a young age is not only beneficial for physical health, but can positively affect aspects of personal development among young people, such as self-esteem, goal-setting, and leadership. The Sports Center will further our vision of providing a high-quality sports program in the summer for our campers and enhance our facilities for the year-round Retreat Center.
