Looking for a great Catholic summer camp experience for your kids? Here’s a partial list to get you started, courtesy of our readers.

Are you looking for a great summer camp experience for your kids? So were some of the parents in our PB & Grace Parents Facebook group. We’ve compiled their suggestions into this handy list.

Please know we haven’t checked out all of these camps, so do your research before signing up. The PB & Grace Parents group would be a good place to ask about particular camps; you’ll need to request to be added to the group first.

This list is obviously incomplete, so feel free to add your suggestions into the comments, and we’ll include them in the next update of this article. If you work at one of these camps, help us fill out this page by sending us a short description—your elevator pitch about the camp—and one photo to: [email protected] Put the words “Summer camp” in the subject line, please.

Very soon we will have a youtube video of our Bishop Johnston promoting this year’s new activity, so be sure to search for that in the next week- it will be a hoot!!
