The cost is $15 per child with a $35 family maximum. Please have checks made out to St. Matthew PSR and sent to the attention of Malinda Moloney including a notation on the check with student’s name and Catholic Kids Camp on. Pre-registration is required for this event and payment needs to be received by June 1, 2017 in order for your student’s t-shirt to be ordered.

Special thanks to our Knights of Columbus Council for their generous donation to Kids Camp, which helps to keep your registration cost low.


What will the kids learn during the week?
The over-riding concept for the week will be time travel. Students will be drawn into the experience by time traveling to point in each Saint’s life that demonstrate their devotion to the Sacred Heart and the effect it had on their love for God and others.

Day of the Week Theme/Lesson Saint Bible
Monday Prayer: Praying with Sacred Heart of Jesus St. Catherine Of Siena The Transfiguration
Tuesday Mass: At Mass we actually travel back to Calvary St. Pier Giorgio Frassatti The Last Supper
Wednesday Frequent Communion: Making a Spiritual Communion St. John Vianney The Healing of the Centurion Servant
Thursday Reparation: Consoling the Heart of Jesus St. Therese of Lisieux Agony in the Garden
Friday Holy Hour: Promoting Home Enthronement Sts. Louis & Zelie Martin Epiphany

Additionally, each day the time travelers will be sent home with a resolution or challenge to bring Jesus’ love to their family, friends and community. When they report back to camp the next day, they will be able to add symbols of their acts of love as fuel to our time travel machine. How cool is that?
