We are excited to announce St. Michael’s Abbey Summer Camp will be operating this year, 2021!
The priests and seminarians of St. Michael’s Abbey will act as camp directors, counselors, and staff and ensure that campers are supervised at all times.
Accommodations: Large military tents with bunks.
Recreational Activities: Slip ‘n slide, sports,
hiking, campfires, and more!
Spiritual Activities: Mass, Rosary, catechism,
Benediction, optional altar server training, and
opportunities for Confession.
Accreditation: Our overnight camp has been
in operation since 1962, and has been accredited
by the American Camping Association.*
*Due to the new location we are in the process of updating
our accreditation, which we expect to receive soon!
Summer 2021 Camp Dates
Week 1: July 19-24
Week 2: July 26-31
Week 3: August 2-7
Week 4: August 9-14*
*We strongly encourage 14 year-old campers to attend camp during Week 4 so that we can ensure that they are in an environment with their peers.
Camp Fee: $550 for the first camper and $500 for each additional brother from the same household. The fee does not include accident/injury insurance and is NOT tax deductible. Camp fee is due at time of application. A $100 portion of the camp fee is non-refundable in order to cover application processing.
Credit card is required for online application.
The increased price is due to the increased costs related to the new property (acquiring county permits for camp, costs of running a campground- tents/outdoor refectory/rental bathrooms, et cetera)
