As a seminarian of KC-St. Joseph, my week serving the middle schoolers at [Camp Savio] filled me with hope for the future of our diocese. Seeing 6 to 8th graders gathered from different parishes across KC-St. Joe, seeking fellowship with other Catholic youth was an amazing witness to the work Christ is doing in hearts of my future parishioners.
At a pivotal time of growth, when it is very easy to be caught up with school gossip and the latest social fads, [Camp Savio] provides a week of saturation in the sacraments of our Faith and introduces the middle schoolers to dynamic college students with an infectious zeal to share the Fullness of Life. To top it off, the teenagers experience this week of extreme fun and Catholic dynamism along with their youth ministers and youth group friends so they can take the experience back with them to their home parish.
