A Day at Trinity Youth Camp – What to Expect
Each day holds unique opportunities and special memories for campers. For those who haven’t been to an outdoor camp before, you are in for a one-of-a-kind celebration of faith, friends, and fun. Below is a typical rundown of how our days progress.
- Good Morning! Each day begins bright and early with the sound of heavenly bells to awaken us.
- Breakfast and Morning Prayer include lots of songs and dance to kindle the fire in our souls.
- Daily Mass is an important part of camp and campers participate in many ways: alter serve, bring up gifts, and greet everyone to mass.
- Daily sessions will fill the rest of the day and include recreation, arts and crafts, good news, sundries, and water activities.
- Recreation time releases energy and helps us stay physically healthy. We’ll play kickball, capture the garage sale, and mutaka (a camp favorite version of dodge ball).
- Arts and crafts is a time to be creative making special mementos to remind us of all the faith, friends and fun at TYC.
- Good News is a time to learn more about our faith in an exciting setting with games, trivia, and music.
- Sundries is a compilation of different activities. It generally includes reconciliation, time to get to know our camp priest and discuss vocations, opportunities to practice cooperation and team work.
- Water activities includes swimming, boating, water trampolines, games and, depending on the location, a sauna and time to shower in the lake.
- Canteen time allows campers a chance to buy snacks and socialize.
- Cabin time is our much-needed down time after a busy day when you get to know your cabin mates and prepare for night time activities
- Special activities, such as the Christ Hike, an egg hunt, skit night and a dance are just a few of the possible surprises we’re planning for you.
- Campfires with lots of songs, dancing, s’mores, and other snacks before bed.
