St. John Bosco Camps

We are excited to announce the founding of St. John Bosco Camps!

Seminarians, priests, and others have been working behind the scenes to erect a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation for the running of our camps. The name of this corporation is St. John Bosco Camps, and it will be assuming responsibility of Camp St. Peter and Camp St. Isaac Jogues this summer, 2021. We want to assure everyone that this has nothing to do with the coronavirus, we have been working in the background for some time to erect this corporation. We also want to assure you that, practically speaking, nothing will change on the camps. Creating this corporation is an effort on our part to further legitimize and improve the camps, as well as give them a solid foundation to ensure they continue in the future.

If you have questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

May God bless you!

Prayer for the Camps

Collect from the Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter

O God, Who by giving the keys of the heavenly kingdom unto blessed Peter the Apostle, didst deliver unto him the power of binding and loosing; grant that, by the help of his intercession, we may be delivered from the bonds of our sins. Who livest and reignest with God the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end.

St. Peter
