The Department of Youth Ministry is preparing for our summer camp programs to be held this July at Camp Cazedero. This beautiful site (http://uccr.org/camp/camp-cazadero) will play host to both or our Diocesan camps for youth in grades 6th-9th grades. Feel free to distribute or use the attached flyer (click here) and video link to promote participation in this year of our diocesan summer camps.
The camps are inspired by our successful Camp RAD program which has been part of the Department of Youth Ministry’s summer programming since 1994. These 3 and 5 day experiences are fun-filled opportunities for learning about faith and its place in the lives of youth. Through games, music, experiential activities, drama, art, prayer, recreation and sacraments, each camp provides a balance of programming that addresses the developmental needs of each camper. Coupled with the experienced leadership of adult leaders in youth ministry supported by college and high school age facilitators, each camp will be alive with positive energy and spirit.
