(Completed Applications must be postmarked by May 17, 2017!)
CSIJ 2017 Camp Theme:
“Viriliter agite, et confortetur cor vestrum“-Psalm 30:25
“Do manfully, and let your heart be strengthened.”
Camp St. Isaac Jogues is a summer camp hosted by priests and seminarians of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter for Catholic young men ages 13-16 years old.
The camp is located on the property of the Gregory the Great Academy in Elmhurst Township, Pennsylvania. This camp is designed to help form boys into strong Catholic young men by means of athletics, catechism, prayer, sacrifice and example. This year’s camp theme is directed towards those actions and that strength of heart necessary for all men who hope in the Lord. From kneeling in prayer to roughing it at the campsite, from demonstrating good sportsmanship to acting civilly in the chow line, and from singing righteous campfire songs to competing in every kind of team challenge imaginable, this camp will be an experience of a lifetime that will attempt to inspire future men of Christ under the patronage of one of the most virile martyrs of our land. Is your son up for the challenge? Apply before it’s too late for this 10 day adventure of faith and fun on the beautiful rural campus of Gregory the Great Academy. Forming boys into strong Catholic gentlemen is what God made this campsite for.
We hope to provide the next generation of Catholic young men with a firm spiritual foundation that will help support them for the rest of their lives.
