CYO Camps Alumni, friends, and family joined us at Woodland Lanes in Livonia on Friday, January 30, 2015. Together we raised funds for CYO Camp projects, reunited with friends, and had a lot of laughs! Thank you to everyone who came out to support the camps and reconnect!
Our next CYO Alumni Event will be the Fish Fry at Our Lady of Guadalupe in Port Huron on March 6, 2015 at 6:00 pm. Jim Racz is graciously coordinating this effort so if you have questions contact him via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our alumni group on Facebook at CYO Camp Staff Alumni.
Here are some great memories from the 2015 Bowling Fundraiser!
At the end of August, CYO Boys Camp was the proud recipient of an Eagle Scout Project funded by the efforts of Alaric Gerstheimer-Seubert. Alaric, a Sacred Heart of Roseville Parish member, saw a special need at the Boys Camp and worked with his family, Boy Scout Troop 1419, and many supporters to raise funds and awareness for the project. Giving back to the community was a special component of his fundraising plan. Last February Alaric coordinated a Music and Comedy Concert to raise a majority of the funds needed for his Eagle Scout project.
We'd like to especially thank Alaric for choosing the Birchgrove area at the Boys Camp to receive this gift. The project included creation of permanent benches (each has it's own engraving) along with an altar and ambo. We would also like to thank his parents, Troop 1491 based in Roseville, and Sacred Heart Parish and community members for your support and help with the project. We love it and can't wait for the boys to use it next summer!

Camp Stapleton and Camp Ozanam Alumni gathered on Thursday, April 10th at the beautiful Joe Bologna Trattoria, located in Sterling Heights.
The evening was filled with laughs, stories, and memories as Alumni shared moments from their special times at camp.
A special highlight was the opportunity to honor Jim Doyle, who received a brick paver to acknowledge his many years as a devoted maintenance man.
THANK YOU Alumni for supporting the camps, and raising proceeds for camp programming, and teepee maintenance!
We'd LOVE to highlight Camp alumni stories here on our blog, The Journey. If you are interested in submitting your story, please contact Jenny@campsconnect.org.
