CAMP VERITAS 2019

Last year, dozens of teens from Trinity High School, Catholic Academy of Stamford, and the North Stamford Catholic Youth Group encountered Christ, made rich friendships, and had the most awesome week of their lives … and we’re offering it once again!  Camp Veritas hosts week-long sleep-away camps for kids entering grades 7 thru 12 in Newburgh, NY and Wurtsboro, NY in July and August.  It’s a week of sports, dodgeball, go-karts, laser tag, rope courses, boating, swimming, basketball…and also daily Mass, Rosary, Adoration, dynamic talks by priests and nuns, amazing music, and a life-changing encounter with the Lord Jesus.  Many of our teens said this was the single most important event in their Faith journey.  We are offering a special discount – only $200 for any youth who attends Mass weekly and goes to Trinity, Catholic Academy or our North Stamford Youth Group.  Regular price is $450.  Fr. Gill will be at Camp Veritas this year and hopes to see your son and daughter there as well.  For more information or to register, check out the website at www.campveritas.org.  To obtain the discount, simply register online, pay the $100 deposit, and then contact Fr. Joseph at frjosephgill@gmail.com or write to stceciliaeducation@gmail.com.  To speak with someone directly, call Gina Denner (203) 968-6388.  Volunteers (must be over 18 yrs.) are needed and attend free!  Want a glimpse of how much fun it is?  Check out the trailer on Youtube at:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KKDGyNTQGM&t=10s.  

The memories will last all year … but the Relationship?  All Eternity.
