Camp St. Joan of Arc

Last month, Bernadette and Theresa got to participate in the wonderful girls' camp that they have attended for the past couple of years.

Our favorite seminarian lead this year's camp.

He did a fantastic job.

So did the other seminarians.

The girls were happy to be woken on a couple of mornings by the sound of bagpipes being played by Fr. Nolan.

He is a talented piper.

My friend's youngest son joined the campers.

There's nothing quite like trying to get a piece of gum out of a pan full of whipped cream without using your hands.

The campers asked the seminarians to use the hula hoops. It looks like they enjoyed showing off their hula hoop skills.

Snack Time

Beautiful Scenery

Rifle Instruction

Dodge Ball

Singing a Repeat-After-Me Song

Theresa was happy to have a cute toddler around.

Fr. Gordon's and Fr. Nolan's talks were both invaluable and memorable.

The theme for this year's camp was "Know Your Bible & You'll Know Your Faith".

May God bless the priests, seminarians, and volunteers who helped to make the camp such a success!

  1. Great pictures, Theresa!

    It was so nice to meet your girls at the camp this year, Christine! My girls had such a wonderful time and are looking forward to hopefully attending again next year.

    Bernadette has such a lovely voice! I enjoyed hearing her (and the other girls) sing on the way up to the shooting range during camp. Oh, and speaking of rifle shooting... I recognize a certain someone in those pictures! lol That was fun. :)

    1. Thank you, Jessica.

      My girls were happy to meet you and your daughters too. Theresa was happy to get a chance to speak with your older daughter on one of the hikes. My girls are so thankful to your brother-in-law for allowing them to go each year. Going to the camp is one of the highlights of their year.

      Bernadette has been blessed with a lovely voice. She enjoys singing with our parish's choir and around the house. I enjoy listening to her and my other children sing regardless of their abilities.

      I thought that was someone I knew sitting behind Mr. F. :) God bless you!

    What a blessing! Wish we lived closer!

    1. It is a blessing. We are so thankful that the girls were able to go to our local FSSP girls' camp and the one in Idaho this year. Who knows, maybe you will eventually be blessed with an FSSP parish close to you. God bless you and your family!


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I hope that you have a wonderful day! God bless you!
