Additional Info:

  • All registrations must be coordinated through your parish. Please have your youth minister/DRE complete the group form. Have your youth minister send a $50 deposit per person to the Office of Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Sign up right away with your parish to ensure your week of choice! Registration begins in January.
  • Are there any discounts? Clergy and Religious stay free!!! The presence of priests and religious is so important to our young people that the camp director has agreed not to charge anything for them. They’re welcome to be there the whole week or even just part of a day.
  • How many chaperones are necessary? This camp aims to support the parish and asks each parish to send chaperones with their young people at a 1:7 ratio. All chaperones must be age 21 and older.  The presence of chaperones from the parish is so important in making the experience last when the week of camp is done. This is also one of the reasons this camp is so successful. You must send chaperones with the youth. It is preferred that the chaperone be someone from your parish.
  • What are the accommodations? Everyone stays in cabins. They are very well maintained and most have 8 beds (bunks). Chaperones stay with campers in cabins. The beds have mattresses and everyone needs to bring along a sleeping bag and pillow. A bathhouse is located close to each cabin allowing easy access to showers and restrooms.
  • What are the safety precautions? CrossWoods staff are all trained in leading young people in the designated high adventure activities (high & low ropes, rappelling, climbing, canoeing, sea kayaking, biking). The staff are mostly college students with a love for Christ and the outdoors.
  • What is involved in the programming? The camp is an ecumenical camp run by an Episcopalian Priest. For our week of camp, the Diocese has reserved the entire camp allowing us to conduct the teaching aspects to ensure that it is fully Catholic. Programming will be done by youth ministry leaders (parish youth ministers, diocesan directors, religious clergy) from the Diocese. Each day there will be a short talk after breakfast to present the theme for the day and then a longer teaching in the evening. All campers are part of a small group in which they discuss and reflect on these teachings.
  • What about prayer and the Sacraments? A chapel with the Blessed Sacrament present provides campers with a great place for prayer and reflection during the week. There will be at least one priest at the camp at all times. This allows us to have daily Mass, Confessions throughout the week, and a special time of Adoration on Thursday night. There will also be Morning Prayer, Holy Hour (optional, but highly encouraged & well attended), & Night
