SKY Camp

SKY Camp (Catholic Summer Camp for Youth) is a fun, prayerful, and powerful experience for children going into grades 5-9!

Camp activities include Mass, swimming, catechesis, skits, Reconciliation, campfires, basketball, crafts, archery, music, and a multitude of outdoor games. Each camper receives an "official SKY t-shirt" displaying the current year's theme.

At SKY Camp everyone is on "God's time." All time telling devices are turned in at the beginning of camp (don't worry you will get them back) allowing the campers the freedom of not having to worry about time.

Lay directors, Priests, Sisters, seminarians, adult and teen counselors staff the camps each summer. Additional volunteer staff includes cooks, musicians, and camp nurses.

*A confirmation letter will be sent out 2 weeks before each camp with directions and a packing list.

**PLEASE NOTE--ALL SKY CAMP QUESTIONS SHOULD BE ADDRESSED TO RUSSELL KOOS AT CAMP KATERI.  THE YOUTH MINISTRY OFFICE NO LONGER COORDINATES SKY CAMP, AND HAS NO INFORMATION ABOUT SKY CAMP ACTIVITIES, REGISTRATION, ETC.  THANK YOU!  To register for SKY Camp, go to the Camp Kateri website.
