Winter Faith Camp
February 18-21, 2022
What is Winter Faith Camp? It's everything that you love about camp... but in the winter! Our High School Youth will be heading to Camp Courage to "fortify" their faith in a new way. This camp is open to all 9th-12th graders at Holy Name of Jesus and is intended for youth who are looking to deepen their understanding of the faith and to be reignited in their relationship with Jesus. This camp will feature the power of the Sacraments, talks, outdoor winter activities, and the opportunity to meet Catholic youth from all over the Twin Cities!
There are only 25 high school spots available for Winter Faith Camp, so make sure to register soon if you want to go! If you register after spots are filled you'll be put on a waitlist and be notified if spots open up.
When is WFC? February 18-21, 2022. It is President's Weekend and we do go from Friday evening to Monday afternoon. Please make sure that you have school off on that Monday when you are registering. If you cannot be there the whole weekend, we ask that you give your spot up for someone who can be there the entire time.
Where is WFC taking place? This year WFC will be at Camp Courage 8046 83rd St NW, Maple Lake, MN 55358. We will be staying in cabins with beds, bathrooms, and showers available to all.
What will we be doing at WFC? We'll have the opportunity to go to Mass every day, receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, participate in small group discussion, pray in Adoration... as well as go sledding, play broomball, dodgeball, glow in the dark ultimate frisbee, crafts, and laser tag just to name a few activities. You will not go away feel bored or empty!
Who is EFC for? WFC is for all high schoolers in 9th-12th grade at HNOJ. If you are in 9th & 10th grade, this can count as one of your Confirmation retreats!
Who is in charge? WFC is run by a number of youth ministers working together to make the retreat happen. Elliut Fonseca will be responsible for the teens of HNOJ. You can contact Elliut here or reach him at 763-746-8195.
What's the transportation situation? Being as we are about 45 minutes from Camp Courage, we will Parent Drop-Off and Pick-Up at Camp Courage. This will also keep the cost of the retreat down as we will not need to get a bus. Students will need to be at the retreat by 7:00pm on Friday, Feb. 18 and be picked up at 3:00pm on Monday, Feb. 21.
How much does WFC Cost? $240; this price includes a three-night stay, at Camp Courage all meals, t-shirt, coverage for chaperones, and cost of materials for the retreat. At this time, scholarships are not available for the retreat.
