Conquest offers summer camps for boys in several locations across the country

Jamboree 2012 Flier
Jamboree 2012 in Rolling Prairie, Indiana

Trying to figure out what to do this summer with your rambunctious boy, or perhaps several boys? Does a week or two of sports and other active outdoor pursuits sound like something they might like?  Toss in some activities to nurture the soul, and you have one of several camps sponsored by Conquest, a Catholic boys youth program of Mission Network and sponsored by Regnum Christi.  The camps invite boys from ages ranging from about 10 to 17, and their Dads are welcome too!

Below are details from some of these events.  To see if another event is taking place near you, click here.

Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania:

If you are “up for the challenge,” boys ages 10-13 are invited to attend the “Call & Duty: Undaunted Courage” Conquest National Camp.  Those who attend will “work together with your team in awesome activities” and go on “a spiritual journey into dangerous territories with all sorts of obstacles to battle and overcome.”   This camp offers swimming, sports, games, paint ball and "great food."

There is also a component for boys ages 14-17 who are interested in being Conquest “team leaders.”  The camp offers “leadership training in organizing fun and formative activities to lead your teams effectively.” 

To register for either camp, contact Todd Brechbill at tbrechbill@missionnetwork.com.

Rolling Prairie, Indiana:

Boys ages 11-15 can register to attend the Jamboree 2012 camp.  With the theme “Equipping Yourself to Transform the Culture” the June 30 –July 5 event includes sports and games, conferences, faith formation, an excursion to Chicago, leadership training, Mass and sacraments and more.  The deadline to register is May 19.  To RSVP or for more information contact Sara Blalock at cnblalock@frontier.com.

Clarkston, Michigan:

Boys ages 10 to 15 are invited to the Everest Academy campus to have a “summer you will never forget” with fun activities that will help them grow in their faith and leadership. Camp Kilimanjaro activities include Mass, sports, Olympic style competitions, a canoeing trip, paintball and hiking on the Michigan dunes. Mark your calendars for either June 22 – 30 for Camp Kilimanjaro I, or July 25 – August 1 for Camp Kilimanjaro II. For more information or to register, contact Brother Joshua Thompson LC at jthompson@legionaries.org.
