Mission is always the fruit of a life which knows what it is to be found and healed, encountered and forgiven. -Pope Francis
What if there was a way to end your summer having lived a week with other young people that can’t be described in 140 characters or less?
What if that same week promised to send you back to school spiritually recharged and better equipped to share your faith with others?
What if this was all set to happen for the second time at Our Lady of Victory Camp on August 21-25, 2017?
This unforgettable week will include epic wide games as well as presentations by veterans of youth ministry (including Fr. Marc Cramer, Luke Gervais, Mike Landry, Jeannette Manser, and Peter van Kampen.) You’ll be challenged to grow in your faith as we pray and worship together. You’ll learn and practice skills that will help you put on youth nights and retreats of your own. …and you’ll leave having been transformed by time spent in Eucharistic Adoration.
Here’s what you need to know:
- This camp is open to any young person in high school (14-18) or recently graduated (17-19) who have an interest in more closely knowing Christ & learning how to better share Him with others.
- Anyone over the age of 18 who’d like to come along, please contact Mike Landry. [NOTE: Any adult leaders are obliged to have participated in a CAEDM Called to Protect Workshop or your diocesan equivalent].
- Everything gets started at Our Lady of Victory Camp (click here for directions) at 2pm on Monday, August 21, 2017. We’ll send you on your way – transformed by your faith – on Friday, August 25 with a bagged lunch at 12 noon.
- The cost to you is $225 – you send your cheque (made out to The Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton) and registration form by August 10 to:
- Dive In Camp c/o Good Shepherd Parish 18407 – 60 Avenue NW Edmonton, AB, T6M 1X7
- What do you bring? Sleeping bag, pillow, 5 changes of clothes, warm coat, running shoes, bug spray, sunscreen, swimsuit, musical instruments, Bible, journal, and any personal hygiene items you need throughout the week.
For more information (any questions that weren’t answered here), please email Mike Landry or contact the Good Shepherd Parish office at 780-487-7765.
This camp is brought to you by a partnership between the Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton Vocations Office & several local youth ministry leaders.
