Chaminade Julienne Catholic High School (CJ) is located on a beautiful corner of downtown Dayton with easy access to the highways that connect the entire region. The school has just completed a multi-year, multi-million dollar renovation which brought central air conditioning to the entire building and upgraded the classrooms, cafeteria, auditorium, gym, corridors and offices. In addition, a brand new stadium and fields were opened in 2016, giving the campus 2 full size football/soccer fields to use for school and community events. CJ is owned and operated by two religious orders, Society of Mary (Marianists) and the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, in conjunction with lay persons.

  • Shower Facilities: There are 2 locker rooms in the school that will be used for showers. They are “community showers”, so it is a good idea to bring shower shoes.
  • Sleeping Facilities: Groups will sleep in air-conditioned, renovated classrooms with many of them being carpeted.
  • Program Area: It is in a brand new auditorium which is air-conditioned.
  • Meals: In the cafeteria which is air-conditioned.
