After a tough winter, kids are likely dreaming about getting out of school and enjoying the coming summer months. Why not enhance their plans with a Conquest or Challenge summer camp?  Events have been scheduled throughout the country. 

Conquest

To help put into action the potential God has given them, young men ages 10 - 18 can sign up for fun and adventure this summer at Conquest leadership camps in a wide variety of US and Canadian locations. 

“Programs will help campers develop spiritually while learning important skills like self-discipline, responsibility, perseverance, and team work,” said Todd Brechbill, National Director for Conquest.

In addition to camp activities, sports, and outdoor fun, participants will have daily Mass, Gospel reflections, spiritual guidance and personal time with Christ and the opportunity for confession.

One of the campers who attended a Conquest camp in Pennsylvania, John Lane, said, “The camp was one of the most fun camps I’ve been to. We threw

tomahawks, and received the sacraments!  I enjoyed the talks give by the brothers there, and the theme of the camp -- the settlers and Native Americans. The balance of prayer and activities was something I didn´t expect them to get right, but they did! Altogether, I had a great time and made plenty of friends!”

A list of camps currently available is on the Conquest website. To register as a camp volunteer, click here.

Challenge

Several Challenge camps for girls are available to choose from in the US and Canada.  The camps are offered for girls in grades 5-12. The 2014 theme is “JUMP! Make a splash in the world!”

“The camps are based on the

theme of Christian leadership, offering the inspiring examples of saints,” said Nadine McMillan, Challenge National Director.  “Each day is centered on a different leadership quality.  We want to help each camper discover she can be a leader -- someone who influences others, makes an impact, and brings others to Christ by being the best version of herself.”

Events will help girls develop perseverance and confidence and enhance their prayer life.  Girls will learn how to be a team player and a friend. They will attend Mass and have the opportunity for confession, and participate in sports, games, workshops, team dynamics development and activities, swimming and just plain fun in the sun.
