Share the experience of camp with the whole family!  Spend Labor Day weekend swimming in the pool, hiking, horseback riding, roasting marshmallows and singing around the campfire.  Fun abounds in a wholesome, faith filled environment that will be sure to create memories to last a lifetime!



 This month's spotlight is on Brian Mahoney. Brian came to CYO in 2003 as a Lodge Leader at Camp Gallagher, then worked at Camp Hamilton for the next two summers. Brian shares a recent update:

brian mahoney

I am teaching at a charter school in East Austin. I teach middle school science to a bunch of kids from very diverse backgrounds, lower socio-economic, at-risk, etc. I love what I do. I found my love for middle school youth when I worked at Camp Hamilton for two summers and a spring. I am totally indebted to CYO for touching my life at a time when I really needed it. I have been married to a beautiful woman, Jessica, for over a year and we just bought a house this past December.  




DONATE TO CYO Camp Hamilton is in need of a  maintenance truck with a full size bed in good running condition. As many of you know, Hamilton roads are pretty rough on trucks so the maintenance crew would prefer a diesel with  4WD, and trailer hitch.

If you or anyone you know would like to donate, please call our office 206.382.4562 or email

Thank you
