What is Camp Virtue?

Camp Virtue is a day camp that allows middle school youth to enter more fully into the life of the Catholic faith with an understanding of living out virtues in their homes, schools, community and world. Camp Virtue will help participants understand that they can enjoy each day to the fullest while being filled with faith and a love for God. 

Camp Virtue will include dynamic talks on the virtues, praise and worship, small group discussion, icebreakers, games and much more until lunch time. After lunch, we will depart via school bus for daily adventures in the afternoon.
