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.

“My dear young people, only Jesus knows what is in your hearts and your deepest desires. Only He, who has loved you to the end (cf. Jn 13:1), can fulfil your aspirations. His are words of eternal life, words that give meaning to life. No one apart from Christ can give you true happiness.” - St. John Paul II (World Youth Day) 

The theme for this years camp is entitled “Relentless Father” and we are going to explore and expand on how God is not just a Father, but a Relentless Father.  He is a Father that never gives up on us, never abandons us, will always search for us, protect us, and heal us.  This central theme will be expanded on through the various keynote talks and small group discussion that happens at camp.
