You and your small group will camp in tents, assist with all aspects of camp life, and have a rustic, outdoor experience! During the day you’ll choose between rock climbing, canoeing, and hiking. Evenings will be spent playing games and gathering around the campfire. You’ll have small group discussions talking about college life and what it means to be a Bishop. You’ll sleep well after good meals, great friends, star gazing, and challenging your body and mind!
