July 23rd – 27th: Middle School Camp: Jesus HIStory

Middle School Camp is a week-long day camp experience for middle school youth across the peninsula. The goal of the camp is to bring together middle school youth from area parishes to build community, grow in knowledge of the faith, and encounter Christ through prayer and sacrament. This high-energy camp is filled with fun games, service activities, small group discussions, time for prayer, and a trip to a water park. The Middle School Day Camp is open to all rising 6th, 7th, and 8th grade youth for the 2018-19 school year. This year the camp will take place at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish (100 Harpersville Rd). The cost of the camp is $125 (minus $45 if the participant has a water country season pass). This includes the camp fee, daily lunch, water park ticket/ transportation, and camp T-Shirt. Please contact ammccarthy@stjoanofarcva.org for more information!
