Day Camp for Kids and Teens held in Parish

The parish in collaboration with Idente Youth held a week long day camp for teens (Grades 8-12) and kids (Grades 3-7) from Monday, July 26 to Saturday, July 31. The teens were counselors for the 3 days (Tuesday, July 27 to Thursday, July 29) that the kids were in attendance. The camp activities included seminar, workshops, sports & games, arts & craft, and movie time. The theme of the camp was taken from Pope Francis’s year 2015 address to the young people in Cuba: Don’t bend or yield; open up. Open up and dream!

Don’t bend or yield; open up. Open up and dream! Dream that with you the world can be different. Dream that if you give your best, you are going to help make this world a different place. Don’t forget to dream! If you get carried away and dream too much, life will cut you short. It makes no difference; dream anyway, and share your dreams. Talk about the great things you wish for, because the greater your ability to dream, the farther you will have gone; even if life cuts you short half way, you will still have gone a great distance. So, first of all, dream!
