High School Boys’ Summer Camp

Event Overview

Our Miles Christi Summer Camp is a six-day experience for Catholic young men to encounter Christ and one another in a fun, organic, and meaningful way through excursions, sports, and quality time outdoors.

Memorable Experiences

Our philosophy of the formation of the whole person emphasizes the importance of memorable and healthy experiences that challenge the body and mind. Campers will be able to enjoy 3 main excursions such as kayaking, hiking, water sports, paintballing, or others, which vary depending on the year.

Other activities include sports, recreational games, and enjoyable time on Lake Michigan.

Fraternity

We strongly believe in the importance of fostering natural authentic brotherhood rooted in supernatural charity through shared experiences.

Our goal is to create a fun, natural, sincere and charitable environment so that friendships can develop. Campers are also challenged to be responsible, to be disciplined, and to serve his peers.

In order to ensure this, campers will not be allowed to use phones and technology. See more details below.

Formation and Faith

Attending daily Mass, going to confession and spiritual direction, praying the rosary, having time for personal prayer, and hearing spiritual-formative talks provide the opportunity for campers to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ and help to reinforce and revamp their life of virtue.

We are blessed to have at our disposal the beautiful Holy Rosary Parish. This helps us to have a recollected place for prayer and a reverent celebration of the Holy Mass.

Location

Holy Rosary Parish is a beautiful Church hidden in the Northern Michigan countryside that offers a peaceful campsite ambience, and has a convenient proximity to a variety of “Up North” adventures.
