Out of an abundance of caution for the counselors, administration, and the many junior high youth served every year, Summer Camp has been cancelled. We will resume in 2021. All funds will be reimbursed this week for those who registered for camp.
We will return in 2021. Materials will become available as soon as the camp has been confirmed.
The Diocese of Tulsa will be hosting Catholic Summer Camp for junior high youth in grades 6-8 at Sequoyah State Park Group Camp (near Hulbert) June 29-July 3, 2020.
Camp is an opportunity for youth from all over eastern Oklahoma to make new friends, to have fun in the sun, and most importantly, to grow in their relationship with Christ. Mass, praise and worship, swimming, hiking, arts-n-crafts, water games and so much more are but a part of the daily schedule.
Campers live the cabin lifestyle with 8-12 cabin mates led by 2-4 camp counselors. This gives our campers an opportunity to build a community and friendships to last a lifetime.
A sample daily schedule can be found below.
We aim to accommodate every food allergy and restriction. If your child has specific dietary needs please be sure to include it on their registration form. This way we will be able to plan meals accordingly.
BRIAN - CAMP NURSE/FIRST RESPONDER
Brian is our super-volunteer, the jack of all trades! He is a volunteer firefighter in rural Oklahoma. He also serves Boy Scout camps throughout the summer- when he isn’t with us.
We aim to have at least one priest on-site at camp the entire week. This year we have been blessed enough to be expecting 8 priests and deacons to visit camp and several to be with the campers all week. We believe having a priest at camp helps us meet the spiritual needs of our campers.
Our camp counselors are vibrant, young adult Catholics who can not wait to share Jesus with the youth this summer!
All staff undergo extensive training. All adhere to Diocesan Safe Environment Policies and Procedures including background checks and VIRTUS.
