Diocesan Youth Camp

For many are called, but few are chosen."   Matthew 22:44

It is with great joy that we invite your parish high school youth to attend our Diocesan Youth Camp which will take place at Camp Ondessonk beginning Saturday March 16 to Sunday March 17, 2019. The theme of this Camp is "CHOSEN." This Camp is designed to help participants enter into a deeper relationship with God through youth-led talks, interactions with peers and nature, Mass, Reconciliation and other fun activities. The cost for attending the Camp is $75.00 per person for Saturday & Sunday (includes lodging at Camp Ondessonk on Saturday) or $50.00 per person for Sunday only.

This event is sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Religious Education and Youth Ministry, the Diocesan Youth Ministry Advisory Board and the Diocesan Youth Ministry Advisory Council.

Each parish in the Diocese of Belleville will receive a packet over the Christmas Holy Days containing the necessary materials and information to promote and register their high school youth and their adult chaperones for the event. Below are the items contained in the packet in an electronic format:
