Ave Cor Mariae Summer Camp for Girls and Young Women
There will be NO 2011 Summer Camp. We hope to resume this function in 2012.
As part of our Catholic Youth Formation, Miles Jesu offers an annual Summer Camp for Girls ages 10-16. (Ages 17 and older as assistant leaders by approved application only.) The camp gives girls the opportunity to learn the truths of the Catholic Faith, positive values and practical skills of the home as well as enjoying outdoor sports and recreation in a fun, secure and spiritual atmosphere.
What Should You Bring?

What Some of Our Campers Had to Say...
Another camper, thankful for the opportunity to go to confession said, “it was such a blessing to be able to visit Jesus in the chapel whenever i wanted to. Thank you so much to Father [Christopher Foeckler, MJ] for sitting in the hot sun for so many hours and being available for confessions.”
[I learned not to]“judge a person by how they look on the outside, [but] it’s all about the inside.”
“The biggest thing i learned was how to make friends and fit in,” another camper said. “I loved the friendship of everyone—how willing they were to include ALL the girls. This experience brought me closer to God and helped me to become a more patient, kinder person.”
The overall experience of this year’s camp was summed up by Lorraine (13). “I liked camp because it was fun and it was a good, holy week. I met a lot of nice people and became friends with them,” she said. “Even though i didn’t win any races (i think i came in last), i still had a lot of fun at those. And most of all, you get to visit Jesus in Adoration and go to confession any day.”
