“The chastity talk really spoke to me and made so much sense to me. It was great to see young men hear this message, too.”

“I have never been ‘all in’ and I’m thinking about finally going ‘all in’ in my life with God.”

“Adoration was emotional because God and I had a talk. He told me that someday I will become a saint and I will be with Him in heaven. Now I have to put in the work and effort.”

“My favorite part of camp was the lake. I really liked the canoes. I liked the way they came around with Jesus during adoration. I made a lot of new friends and I’m glad my parents made me come here. I feel different coming here – I like myself more. When I get home, I have to change. I can’t be the same. I will be more open to my parents and to God. Before camp, I wasn’t praying every day and that is going to change.”

“During Mass, I realized I am here to inspire others. God told me not to worry and that He has everything under control. I feel peace and relieved that I came here. Camp has answers to my questions. I’m also really proud that I finally climbed the wall and conquered it. My goal next year is to bring more kids from St. Sebastian’s so they can know Him and learn to trust in His plans.”

“I like when everyone gets excited in worship. I’ve never seen anything like it! It makes me happy because watching them do that is showing love to God. I’ve never prayed this much before. I met some new friends and had fun swimming.”

“I’ve never seen kids my age worship like this. Some of these kids look like they have more faith than adults I see back home. This is going to help my faith get closer to God and I will make big changes in my life. I will get closer to my mom and work on communication. I am so glad I am here and I hope to come back next year.”
