VIRTUAL SUMMER CAMP
Would you like to run a Virtual Camp for your parish or are you interested for your child?
We have two 5 day programs for you to choose from.
Theme: Let's be transformed in who we are, by looking at virtues, our strengths, our fears, our joy and more!
Theme: What is love? How do we love in truth, faith and hope. How can we see love and God in all things!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Once you have registered, we will send families an email at 9:00am on the morning of camp. This email will include pre-recorded videos of a talk, craft, activities and more for the day. This way families can go through the camp day at their own leisure.
Videos are 3-15 minutes long depending on the activity.
