St. John Paul II Middle School Camp is designed to empower young people entering grades 7-9 to become disciples of Jesus Christ by engaging them in prayer, worship, leadership skill development, scriptural reflection, and service learning. This camp is designed for youth who have a desire to grow in their faith and share that faith back home in parish and family life.

“In the Acts of the Apostles, St Luke describes the extraordinary manifestation of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost as a communication of the very vitality of God who gives himself to men. This divine gift is also light and power: light, to proclaim the Gospel, the Truth revealed by God; power, to infuse the courage of witnessing to the faith, which the Apostles begin at that very moment” - St. John Paul II (May 18, 1997). 

The theme for this years camp is “Wild and Untamed” and will explore the role of the Holy Spirit in our daily spiritual life.  Through keynote talks, men’s and women’s, small group discussion, and much more, we will equip every camper with a better understanding of Holy Spirit in our lives.
