This week we welcomed 26 staff for orientation/training (pictured above) to staff CYO Camps and Camp Ozanam through the Camps Connect collaborative. What an amazing group of staff we will have this summer! Our theme for 2018 is “On Fire for Jesus,” and they are definitely on fire! We ask that you keep the staff, volunteers, and campers in your prayers this summer. Many of them will be working at both CYO Camps and Camp Ozanam as need arises, even with one camp designated as their "home base". Per camp traditions, CYO Camp staff do not usually have "camp names" and Camp Ozanam staff do.
And now, we would like to introduce you to each one of them!
Welcome to ALL the Camps Connect staff this summer! Parents, volunteers, and camp supporters, please partner with us in praying for our staff and campers this summer, that lives will be touched and set "On Fire for Jesus!"
We'd like to take this opportunity to thank the teens of St. Isidore Youth Ministry program who volunteered this past week at all our summer camp programs. They were a huge help in doing a lot of behind the scenes items as well as helping with the campers. We truly enjoyed their enthusiasm and smiles no matter what project they were working on! Thanks for sharing your time and talents with us this week! So truly appreciated! Thank you!

This amazing crew of over 100 volunteers spent the weekend with us preparing both camps for the summer. So much was accomplished in such a short period of time, it was very overwhelming! We are truly blessed by the many volunteers who continue to support the mission of the camping program. We can't thank you enough for all your hard work and dedication! THANK YOU!
This crazy, awesome VOLUNTEER crew once again surpased all expectations! Over 70 volunteers came up throughout the weekend and did multiple projects to make both camps a better place. It's always amazing what they can accomplish in a weekend. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Looking forward to 2017!
