The Camp cooperates with parents in the integral formation of their son. This is accomplished through a uniquely personalized program whose trademark motto is: To Teach, To Educate and To Form.
The Camp offers each camper the means by which he can forge his character in Christian values in accordance with his potential.
Through positive motivation, personal attention and constant supervision, the Camp helps campers identify and develop their own talents and skills.
General Disciplinary Rules
Rules and procedures help our campers forge virtues, habits and ensure that each person receives his due respect. Campers should know and understand the rules as means for their formation. The Camp forms its campers with respect and sensitivity in a family environment conscious of the needs of each person. Adherence to the rules of the course will assure growth in maturity, independence, courtesy, respect and personal organization within each camper.
– Each camper is encouraged to become an Outstanding Camper. Each camper should seek maturity and be willing to make full use of the opportunities offered by the Camp so as to become a person of integral formation. The Camp encourages parents to help their sons see the connection between external discipline and the formation of virtues and habits. The Camp depends on parents to motivate and encourage their son to see the value achieved through discipline. For this reason we ask parents to whole-heartedly support Summer Camp’s rules and procedures
– Campers are expected to be well behaved and well groomed both on and off campus. Campers are expected to be punctual, follow the Camp’s schedule and practice good time management.
– Campers are divided into groups according to age and maturity. Campers should be with their group at all times and must notify their deans whenever they have permission to be absent. Respect is to be given to the teachers and to fellow campers at all times. Campers are encouraged to actively participate in classes, offering input in a polite and courteous manner.
– Personal belongings must be neat and orderly. No food or drinks will be permitted in the classrooms or bedrooms. Campers should not bring iPods, iPads, iPhones, DVD Players, computers, cellular phones, or other electronic devices to the Camp. In this way your son will be able to focus on the camp’s program and take full advantage. Campers should refrain from bringing valuables to the Camp. The Camp will not be held responsible for articles that are lost or broken. Chewing gum is not permitted at any time in the Camp.
