In 1999, Bishop Bruskewitz approved the purchase of a farm near McCool Junction to be used for a Catholic Camp for youth and families. The campground is named after Saint Kateri Tekakwitha, who was beatified in 1980 and canonized in 2012. The first SKY Camp for junior high youth was held at Camp Kateri in the summer of 2001.

Camp Kateri hosts retreats, parish groups, and family events including:
SKY Camp Summer religious camp for youth in 5th-9th grades.
Leadership Camp Week-long Catholic summer camp for boys entering 6th-9th grades.
