What You Can Expect

For five days (June 18-22), we welcome middle schoolers to encounter Jesus Christ in the beautiful outdoors through the apostolic faith and the Catholic life. We roam the mountains, swim the lake, celebrate Mass, pray the Rosary, enjoy skits, sing joyfully, light campfires, become pirates, devour food, sleep soundly, meet friends, embrace mentors, and grow as Christ followers to be sent into the world. Our site is Camp Perkins near Stanley, Idaho. Each year we choose a theme and one of the four sets of rosary mysteries. This year, we are hosting Pirate Camp with a focus on the Glorious Mysteries of Christ’s life and help from our heroes in faith, the communion of saints.

Though we are far from perfect, we believe in a quality camping experience for your young person. You should expect the following from this experience:
  • Easy to navigate registration and payment
  • Communication leading up to, during, and after Camp
  • A safe, healthy, and comfortable environment
  • A professional youth ministry staff aided by faithful and energetic volunteers
  • A registered nurse for the week to care for scrapes, injuries, illness, medication, and needs
  • Healthy meals prepared by Camp Perkins
  • Fun Catholic formation
  • Priests and youth ministers caring for the spiritual needs of your youth, including many opportunities for prayer and sacraments
  • A vibrant outdoor setting with a number of activities throughout the week
  • An opportunity to offer feedback and help us improve the Camp experience
