More details to come.


Our goal is that your teen walks away with amazing memories and a deeper understanding of their faith when it comes to social justice issues. Each day we will meet in the morning for prayer and reflection (Monday morning and Friday afternoon is Mass). Then the rest of the day is filled with acts of service (e.g., First Fruit Farms and picking crops), a little education on faith justice issues, followed by a whole lot of fun. Your child will be placed into small groups where they are able to break down their experience with their peers. At the end of the week, we'll celebrate what we've accomplished with our first Camp SMILE Olympics!

All participants will receive a more detailed schedule on July 11 when they pick up their Camp Smile Kits. For more details contact Chris Wesley at
