SUMMER CAMP FOR BOYS IN WISCONSIN
Posted in General on August 26, 2017

The Summer Camps of 2017 turned out to be a very joy-filled and entertaining two weeks. The first great impression from assisting with the camps was to see the many hours of hard work put into the organization and labor necessary for the camps. The volunteer spirit was certainly noticeably and made a Tennessean like myself feel right at home. Apart from the volunteers, the campers were quick to express their excitement to be at camp, and they had good reason to do so. Once the games and athletic events started the campers gave their all to represent their team and make it the best that they could. Of course some innocent divisions were caused by these teams, but they were continually brought back to Catholic unity as they filed into the chapel for Daily Mass or the Liturgy of the Hours, and the Rosary walks.

During our week of Boys Camp baseball reigned as the sport of choice during any "down time" and an elaborate game of Capture the Flag was a highlight of the week for many of the young men. The young ladies were naturally a bit more delicate in their activities, yet they spared no beauty. A group of the young ladies work hard throughout the week to sing polyphonic pieces during the Daily Masses. The girls enjoyed volleyball and many entertaining games and crafts with a very competitive cooking competition on the last full day. For both camps the nightly bonfires were times of a very particular entertainment. Comedy skits and songs from the campers, parents, and even the clergy helped to bring out the comedian in all of us. 

In short, it was a great pleasure to be able to assist and participate in the Summer Camps this year. I could not imagine a camp being any more exciting while also having such a great spiritual benefit for young boys and girls. If I am given the opportunity, I hope to be able to return to the Summer Camps again.
