Boy’s Camp Virtus et Veritas
July 23 – July 29, 2017
Registration will open February 2017
Camp Virtus et Veritas is a Catholic summer camp for boys entering 6th grade through 9th grade in the fall. It lasts for 7 days, 6 nights and is held at Camp Kateri Tekakwitha in McCool Junction, Nebraska. The camp is full of fun, personal growth, and spiritual development.
Campers will experience incredible daily encounters with Christ through the Sacraments. Days and nights are filled with exhilarating activities, inspiring worship, challenging and engaging talks, interactive sports, and life-changing prayer experiences. We assist boys to become self-disciplined and confident young men. Through this formation, we hope to imprint within their soul a true zeal to know Christ and to embrace His plan for their lives. Our goal is to give them the confidence and strength they need to continue their faith journey and to help them foster healthy vocations.
Dates & Times: Sunday, July 23 at 2:00 p.m. – Saturday, July 29 at 11:30 a.m.

At camp, boys will participate in various activities: Daily Mass and Eucharistic Adoration, Bible study, altar server training, respect for the USA Flag, Campfire, great food, marching, an obstacle course, a mud slide, water sports, archery, skits, and more.
Camp Virtus et Veritas is following in the footsteps of the successful Leadership Camp hosted by the Lincoln Diocese for the past 10 years. Please click here to view a video of Camp.

Leadership Roles – High School and College Men
Young men entering their sophomore, junior, and senior years of high school have the opportunity to lead a group of campers as Senior or Junior Counselors or Squad Coordinators, or to assist our Camp Chaplain in preparing for Holy Mass and Eucharistic Adoration as a Sacristan. College men (19 and older) are invited to apply to be an assistant director.
Please see Leadership & Volunteers for more information.
We are in need of generous donations to offer scholarships to families that require assistance. We do not wish to turn away a boy due to the inability to pay.
We are also in need of donations to obtain a “mobile” sound system for daily Mass, Eucharistic Adoration, and other activities.
If you are interested in donating, please contact Toby Korensky, Camp Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or 402.915.0482. Thank you for your generosity!
