My daughters, 17 and 15, have been attending camp with Scott & Annie Powell for 4-5 years and it is by far one of their best weeks of the year.
It is rich in every way imaginable - their strength and conviction for their faith and love of God is strengthened, Mass, confession; the gift of the counselors - selfless, inspiring, role models; friendships with peers - sleeping in teepee's, early morning hikes, white water rafting, meals...Annie and Scott have really developed quite the camp/experience for youth and we never hesitate signing up early because it would be too sad not to get a slot! The friends they make last a life time as do their memories and the virtues they gain.

Dear Camp Wojtyla,
I wanted to let you know how much my son enjoyed the middle school boys week!
He absolutely loved the Two Sisters summit hike, backpacking overnight, sleeping out under the stars, the lightening protecol (which he has proceeded to explain to us many times :) ) and Quest. He is still talking all about it and learned so many things about his faith, relationships, God and who he is as a young man.
My husband and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating Camp W. We find parenting so difficult with the world we live in and truly feel blessed to have Camp W that our son can go to and get the reinforcements of what we teach him at home.The last day at the team presentations, I had tears in my eyes seeing the results of the week and could see how the Holy Spirit was at work. Again, we thank you so much for doing what you do. I also want to thank all the camp counselors for doing what they do and for being such strong, vibrant, faith filled young people. They are an inspiration to the world and they are setting such outstanding examples for our younger kids.
