Camp Mission

The Saint Thomas Aquinas Summer Camp is centered around religion and sports. Sports, properly directed, develops character, makes a man courageous, a loser generous, and a victor gracious. With these ideals, sports help to glorify God. Sports can never be an end in itself, but must help boys and girls to save their souls. Softness is dispelled and manly virtues are instilled in youth by sports.

There is a tremendous amount of good done at camp each year by the counselors, staff, Sisters, and Priests. I never had camp as a child, but I want to see no child deprived of this privilege; of this chance to have fun; of the opportunity to be fortified in the Catholic Faith.

-Fr. Joseph Greenwell
