Best Experience of My Life"The way we talked about our faith and the bible was way different than it has ever been done in our religious Education classes and youth group bible studies and i liked it, it kept me interested and was put in a way that i could understand the meaning of the talks. I recommend that anyone who wants their kids to have a better understanding of their faith send them to YAK Camp. I believe this gives me a better understanding of my faith and teaches me ways to maintain it, ways that i can use when i leave home."

I love YAK Camp!YAK Camp 2009 will be my 2nd year at YAK Camp. My first year was awesome (last year)! Some of my friends were there but I mad a TON of new friends. The first day of camp a bunch of people came up smiling at me and giving me a BIG welcome! I had made friends with probubly more than half the people there, on the first day. Later in the weak I made a couple more friends one of them was Callahan. My favorite part of the whole camp was Thursday night in prayer. That is all we did, was pray, and comfort other people. I can't wait to see all my friends again this year! YAK Camp is AWeSOME! Written by Mariah G. on Fri 3 Apr 2009 7:22:11 PM GMT

Getting to meet all the new people and seeing the ones you met before again is awesome! It has also helped me increase my knowledge and my faith in such a fun way with people my own age. I look forward to seeing all the leaders and friends and helping to make this upcomeing year a BLAST! YAYA YAK! Written by Cody Granlund on Fri 9 May 2008 5:14:14 AM GMT

YAK camp does Amazing thingsI have been to YAK camp two times already and this will be my third. I love YAK camp so much. I didnt think I would like it at first but then I went and it changed my life and the way I look at things. Not only did I learn how to pray to God and how to pray not only for big things but for the small things like your day or my ipod. hahaha. I also got to meet some amazing people like Kayla, and Jed. Now dont get me wrong there are definatly more wonderfull people at YAK camp I just know that these two people have changed my life. I think that Yak camp is a wonderfull thing not only for Catholic Christians but also for anyone in any faith. It will bring them to God. I also think that even if you dont know what or who or you beleive in it is a wonderfull experience. I know that YAK camp has changed many peoples lives especially mine and and it will never cease to change peoples lives. Thank you Yak camp and as long as YAK camp is alive and well I will be there. I will even be there when i am too old to be there.

Yea for YakcampI have gone to Yakcamp for two years and each one was AMAZING. It so awesome to be surrounded by Catholic kids my age for six days! I can share my faith and have fun doing it. I feel like I am at home learning and building my faith in God. The memories that I have made there and will make this upcoming camp will be with me for the rest of my life.

Spiritually filled week they will never forgetMy boys Tim and Kevin had a wonderful experience. We still have a few of the scriptures they learned at camp on our refrigerator! I will forever be grateful that you provided the spiritually filled week they will never forget. You have your heart in the right place--filling our youth with God's Word.

Faith-filled three year cycle of emphases:

First Year: “Y” is wholesome thought and speech (YAK)
Second Year: “A” is ACTION that is positive, disciplined and oriented to serving others 
Third Year: “K” is KNOWLEDGE leading to inner strength and character

Six speakers and role models, including a Catholic priest, encourage and teach youth Christ-like qualities of the year’s focus. These are also reinforced through memorization of Principles and Promises from Scripture, drama, music, and an end-of-the week field competition called “Power Trip”.
