Information for Campers and Parents 

This fun-filled summer camp encourages and develops the Christian and human virtues necessary for becoming a positive influence on family, friends and society. 

Sports and Arts & Crafts
Camp emphasizes the role of sports in developing the qualities of generosity, discipline and sportsmanship. Some of the sports we offer are swimming, boating, basketball, soccer, relay races,and much more. Art projects are designed to develop skills and increase self confidence, industriousness, patience, and attention to detail. We offer a variety of arts and crafts at camp such as dance, drama, music, sewing,drawing, painting, and culinary arts.

Spiritual Attention
A priest of the Prelature of Opus Dei serves as chaplain. Opus Dei is a personal Prelature of the Catholic Church, which strives to encourage the practice of Christianity among the lay faithful through their ordinary occupations. The daily schedule at camp allows the opportunity for Confession, Holy Mass and the Rosary. For more information, see www.opusdei.org
