I. What is the Brothers of St John 2020 Boys’ Camp?

The Boys’ Camp is a Catholic camp geared to the adventurous spirit of a boy. The boys
will camp on the grounds of the Brothers of St. John in Princeville, Illinois. 

The boys will be kept physically active with hiking, games, a treasure hunt, and more.

Of course, the summit of the experience will be the Holy Eucharist. The boys will be kept
spiritually active with daily Mass, Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and daily teachings
by the Brothers of St. John. Thus, it is important that your sons WANT to come!

The cost is $150.00 per boy, which includes food. In case of financial difficulty, please do not hesitate to write to Br Benedict-Tarcisius 309 210 6164

II. What is the Schedule for the Boys’ Camp ?

Boys will arrive before 7 p.m. on Wednesday, August 29th 2020, and set up tents.

Mass will be held at 11:15 a.m. on Sunday, August 2nd, 2020. All family members are
welcome. A potluck will follow Mass. The CSJ 2015 Boys’ Camp will conclude at 2 p.m.

Parents will receive a more thorough schedule following registration.


III. What do the boys need to bring ?

Tents: The organization will not be providing tents. Whether shared or alone, each boy needs
access to a good, water-tight tent (it usually rains). While there will be some help, at least
one boy per tent should be able to put up the tent. If you have a tent that will fit more than
your own son (or sons), please let us know so that we can offer space to other boys.

Sleeping bag, ridge rest, pillow, flashlight, swimsuit, clothes for the week (underwear,
shorts, shirts, sweatshirt, jeans,outdoor pants etc.), Bible, rosary, Bottle of water, and a towel—but remember to pack light.

No electronics such as cell phones or gaming devices are permitted.
