Camp Life

What to expect from a week of Catholic Youth Summer Camp

High Adventure Activities

Land, air, and water- we take high adventure seriously! From high ropes courses to paintball, ziplines to the blob, challenge yourself with activities that get you out of your comfort zone and into adventure.

Each location offers a unique combination of activities- explore Main Campus, Northwoods, or Great Lakes for more details!

Sacramental Life

A week of camp will energize your faith and lead you to a deep and personal encounter with Jesus. Each day includes Mass and Prayer Lab, a time for learning how to pray with Scripture, while the week offers opportunities for Reconciliation and Eucharistic Adoration.


Make new friends or deepen relationships with friends who will support you at camp & beyond! Every camper has a missionary-led group of 8 other boys or girls that forms their unit for the week, from lodging and activities to prayer and discussion time. Groups are assigned based first on requests, and following that we make every effort to group campers by age, parish, hometown, or other commonalities.

An Environment of Encounter

Each night leads into programming that keeps you on your toes and ready to take another step in your relationship with God. Hilarious skits and dance parties set the stage for an invitation to a deeper life of prayer and openness to God. Teachings exploring key themes of the faith each year, including the Paschal Mystery, the Eucharist, Our Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit.
