Are you thinking of sending your sons to a Catholic camp but can’t decide which one? At our Call to Chivalry Summer Camps, we seek to instil in your son a profound and solid love for his Faith, the Church, and Our Lady. We pray the Rosary every day and your sons hear about the great heroes and saints of the Church.
Of course, plenty of time is set aside for games and we play many unique games, including swordmanship.
In a society that is awash with immorality and sin, the Call to Chivalry summer camp aims to instil self-discipline, to educate youth on the beautiful truths of the Catholic Church, and to urge them to be positive elements in bringing the Reign of Christ and His Blessed Mother to society. To achieve these goals, we strive to maintain the highest standard of conduct and virtue at our camps.
