CYO/Camp Howard is committed to offering excellent athletic and camping opportunities for youth throughout the Archdiocese of Portland. Some of the biggest challenges we face:

  • Providing adequate financial aid for youth whose families cannot afford the cost of our athletic and camp program fees.
  • Equipment costs related to sports and camp activities.
  • Camp Howard maintenance and capital improvements.

You can make a difference with your generous donation. The following opportunities are ways of giving that enable CYO/Camp Howard to meet its annual needs.
