 Camp Virtue

"Life with Christ is a wonderful adventure." - St. Pope John Paul II
WE ARE BACK AND READY TO GO THIS SUMMER!

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. 

Who sponsors Camp Virtue?
Camp is sponsored by the parishes of St. Barbara , Mother of Sorrows (Murrysville), St. John Baptist de La Salle (Delmont), St. Mary, Our Lady of Lourdes (Export), Immaculate Conception (Irwin), St. Agnes and St. Elizabeth Ann Seton (North Huntingdon), as well as Sacred Heart and Ascension (Jeannette).
