Behave manfully in the law: for by it you shall be glorious.1 Machabees 2:64
Camp St. Peter in the Black Hills
The Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter is hosting a two-week, outdoor summer camp for boys ages 13 to 15 years old, at Custer State Park, located an hour south of Rapid City, South Dakota. The camp will be staffed by one priest and eight seminarians from the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter. Custer State Park is located in the rugged Black Hill mountain range and offers plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, hiking, and wildlife observation. Tents will be provided. Bathroom facilities are available on-site, and shower facilities are located nearby. Additionally, a local high-school only a short distance away provides opportunities for various athletic games such as rugby, soccer, football, basketball, and dodge-ball.
APPLICATION: An application form must be filled out completely for each applicant and sent to the address on the application. See Apply to CSP page for more details.
TRAVEL: Transportation to and from Rapid City, SD, will not be provided by Camp St. Peter staff members, although they will be available for shuttling to and from the Rapid City airport (details accompany the acceptance letter).
COST: The cost camp this year is $450, payable by check (made out to “St. John Bosco Camps”), which should be sent along with the application form. If necessary payments can be made in increments, but all payments must be submitted after the first of May. If submitting multiple applications, please send a separate check for each applicant.
The Sermon on the Amount: Please consider donating to the camp or sponsoring a boy to attend; It is not uncommon for families to request financial assistance for their son or sons to attend camp. Payment by increments can also be done to ease the financial burden. Contact the director for further questions.
May God reward you!
