"I really enjoyed the walking Rosary. It is a very peaceful way to start the day, and there were so many of us!"

"My time at Extreme Faith Camp was unforgettable. I made a ton of friends, had a lot of fun playing sports and I really grew in my faith. I would definitely do this camp again in the future."

- Cason Copley, 6th grader, first-time camper.

"I didn't imagine having so much adventure!"

"We have grown to be a family this week."

"Growing closer to God has been the biggest blessing, especially through confession, Mass and Adoration."

"It's been a blessing to have others support me as I did things I thought I couldn't do and to open up."

"I've seen the love of the Lord in all of the other campers."
