    All the fun of camp without the bugs!  (Well, almost anyway)

    Here are something important things to know:

    • 1.   It’s free!  All costs are being supported by the diocese.
    • 2.   It’s for kids entering 3rd grade in the fall to 2020 graduating seniors.  Some of the camp activities will be in two groups—3rd through 6th and 7th through 12th.
    • 3.   To register: go to https://forms.gle/NSSKJYtAc1AVDx1dA

    • 5.   You’ll see old friends, and make new ones.  You’ll learn, laugh, sing and play.
