A virtual Catholic daycamp
starting on August 2, 2021

About Camp Savio

Camp Savio is a welcoming, faith-filled, safe, fun and vibrant experience. We believe that by empowering young people and helping them build confidence to lead, they can contribute to developing a sustainable future. In doing so, they will be strengthened as individuals, as their connection with Christ and the community will grow and be enriched.

This summer, Mission Jeunesse in partnership with Holy Name of Jesus parish is organizing a virtual day camp.

At Camp Savio, we are all about spreading the Good News while also having fun! Our mission is to help children aged 7-10 encounter Christ in a special way through games, activities, and prayer.

Camp Savio will take place via Zoom every weekday morning in the first and second weeks of August 2021. In this virtual camp, we will be spending our time together learning new things in our faith, getting to know each other and simply having fun.

Proclaiming the faith to young people and empowering them to be the saints of their generation.

For children, ages 7-10

Activities have been developed and prepared for children between 7 to 10 years old. Although parents and legal guardians may choose to sign up children between minimum 5 and maximum 12 years old, please note that it will not be possible for animators to modify activities for younger or older children live during the camp.

What will my child get out of Camp Savio?

• Children will gain a better understanding of their Catholic faith, while also developing their relationship with God.

• Children will participate in fun and engaging activities.

• Children will learn how to pray and start developing their daily prayer life.

Fees

1 Child – $40 / week
2 Children – $50 / week
3 Children – $60 / week

Please note that registration fees are non-refundable.

What to expect

From August 2-13, 10am to 12pm

Each week, we will have a faith-based theme that will be central to all of our games, activities and prayers. You can expect to spend your time with us playing fun games through video chat, learning new things, building friendships and developing your relationship with Christ. As well, we will be praying together and doing various individual activities at home which we can then share and talk about with each other.
