Youth Group Summer Fun
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
This year’s youth group camping trip was a success. The Via Christi Youth Group traveled to Rocky Gap State Park to enjoy a week of fun and retreat. The Park offered beautiful scenery with plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, all within the beautiful mountains of Flintstone, MD. Kids went to the lake where they enjoyed the beach and water activities, from beach volleyball to sail boating. The park offered many hiking trails as well.
Each day began centered in Christ with Mass in the morning. Following breakfast, kids had their choice of several outdoor activities like fishing, sailing, kayaking, swimming, volleyball, football, and hiking. Some preferred to relax in the shade while playing card games and enjoying conversation. An hour of adoration followed each dinner as kids wound down their day by refocusing on Christ’s presence in the Eucharist. Nighttime allowed for some campfire fun like making smores while some played songs on the guitar.
Several parents and young adults worked hard to provide a safe and fun environment for the youth. There were even some families who joined, deciding to take the opportunity to enjoy a family vacation together. Overall it was a week of great company and many joyful memories that the Lord blessed us with. We look forward to making next year’s camping trip experience even better, by God’s grace.
God bless you,
