CAMP SAVIO InFormation

​AT CAMP SAVIO, WE BELIEVE

…that camp should be FUN! We play hard, but more importantly, we pray harder! Every camper should walk away from camp with a better relationship with God than when they arrived.

 
CAMP DETAILS

We pray, plan, prepare, and execute the programming for each week of camp. (So the hard work is already done for you!) In planning and carrying out the programming our goal is to create an environment for campers (and their chaperones) to experience adventure, faith, trust, and safety.

During the week, a lineup of dynamic presenters, talented worship leaders, and dedicated priests serve along with the camp staff to encourage a deeper relationship with Christ for each camper.

 

OUTLINE OF A TYPICAL DAY OF CAMP

Breakfast, lunch and dinner each day

A morning and afternoon filled with a variety of games, actives, and adventures (team building actives, messy games, mud pit, low ropes, obstacle courses, field games, and more)

Retreat like sessions each night revolving around the yearly camp theme

An opportunity for the sacraments – Reconciliation, Adoration, and daily Mass

Off-site day to KC Watersports

Free time to shop at the general store

ROLES AT CAMP​

Group Leader: This is the person organizing the trip and the main group contact throughout the registration process and leading up to your arrival at camp. The group leader must be an adult, age 21 or older, who is actually attending camp with the group.

Adult Chaperone: To attend as an adult chaperone, you must be at least 21 years old. While at camp, the adult chaperones are to participate as any camper would. They will be the role models of openness to God throughout every adventure. Along with having fun, they will be responsible for the actions and participation of your campers. Throughout the day, they will need to keep the campers on task to the adventure at hand. At night you will be sleeping in the same dorms as the campers. Therefore, we expect that you will help us with enforcing the curfew and lights out rule, as well as helping wake the campers in time for the day.

 

Campers: Participants at summer camp. For Camp Savio, these include incoming 6th graders through graduating 8th graders. For Camp Bosco, these include incoming 10th graders through graduating seniors.

Savio Shepherds: Savio Shepherds are college aged students who have applied and have been accepted to serve you and your campers at camp. The shepherds will help run the sessions in the evenings, coordinate the daily activities and games, get to know your youth, provide a listening ear and prayerful spirit.

Savio Servants: Savio Servants are high school aged students who have applied and have been accepted to serve. During Camp Savio, they run all the behind the scenes work: setting up and taking down, making sure water jugs are full, running the technology, working in the kitchen, taking photos, taking video, editing photos and videos, running song lyrics, delivering the night snack, working in the camp store, etc. During Camp Bosco, they attend as campers.
