The Call to Chivalry Summer Camps are for boys between 12 and 18 to which the fathers are also invited. Click here to read about our latest summer camp which took place in Waterford last July. For information about next year’s summer camp or for our other events for youth apostolate please contact us below.
The camp is designed to invigorate mind, body and spirit. Favourite games will include shield ball, “prison break,” French football, and treasure hunt. In addition to campfires, stories, talks, and theatrical skits, there will be a medieval sword demonstration, not to mention the final Medieval Games and Banquet. As you may know, our camp aims to instill self-discipline, reinforce parental authority, educate youth on the perennial truths of the Catholic Church, and urge them to be positive elements in bringing the Reign of Christ and His Blessed Mother to society. To achieve these noble goals, we strive to maintain the highest standard of conduct and virtue at our camps.
Chivalry is a whole ensemble of virtues including purity, honesty, justice, and love of the Church. At our summer camps, we try to instill in the participants these virtues through talks, beautiful surroundings, and games animated with pageantry. By telling the stories of Catholic heroes such as St. Louis IX, Don Pelayo and others, we present true role models for boys to follow. Games are often punctuated by invocations to the saints, reminding everyone that we are always in the presence of God.
Every two months a newsletter called Call to Chivalry Bulletin is sent to young men who have signed up. This bulletin covers topics from Our Lady, the saints, Catholic heroes, to history, and Catholic doctrine.
