Middle School Day Camp hosted at Our Lady of Lourdes. Each summer the Richmond area parish Youth Ministries work together with Diocesan support and sponsorship, to offer a Middle School Summer Day Camp for rising 6th-8th Graders. The goal of the camp is to build community, grow in knowledge of the faith, and encounter Christ through prayer and sacraments. This high-energy themed camp is filled with fun games, service activities, small group discussions, time for prayer, and a pool day. Although the day camp is run by adults, high school students serve as counselors throughout the week to help guide group activities.  We hope you’ll consider joining us.  Please turn forms and fees into Mr. Jenkins or Mrs. Stapleton at the Parish Offices.
