FAQ at bottom of page.
*Are scholarships and/or discounts available?
Yes! There is now a Family Discount available for families who send more than one child to any of the diocesan summer camps (Camp Beloved or Camp Greatness). The first child must pay the highest priced camp and each additional child is $100. We also offer scholarships on an as-needed basis. Call or email Kevin Losleben (contact information found on Youth Ministry home page) for more information. Some parishes offer scholarships, so check with them as well.
What happened to the Young Women's Discipleship Camp?
It just got a new name: Camp Beloved. With the changing of the Young Men's Discipleship Camp name, it only seemed right to change the young women's camp as well. Over the years, the girls' camp has developed a bit of a charism, so Camp Beloved seemed like a fitting title. If you attended the YWDC, don't worry, only it's name has changed!
Who directs the camp?
The Handmaids of the Heart of Jesus direct the camp along with the help of college-aged counselors.
What is the food like?
The Schoenstatt Sisters of Mary prepare the meals at camp (they are excellent cooks, by the way). Accommodations can be made for those with food allergies. Contact Cindy Blickem (contact information found on Youth Ministry home page) if you have food allergies.
What are the accommodations like?
Campers sleep in air-conditioned bunk rooms. Two rooms share a large bathroom.
What should I bring?
A packing list will be sent out one week before camp starts.
What is the registration deadline?
Although you can register at any time, please note that after 5:00 PM on July 14, a $25 late fee will be added to your registration fee.
