TOTUS TUUS 2024 at Saint Patrick's, Wildfield


Mark your calendars for 11 - 16 of August, because this summer, we're inviting youth from all over to join us for an enriching experience like no other. Our day and evening programs are packed with a full schedule of activities, designed to foster growth, learning, and fun.

This year, we're diving deep into the heart of our faith with a special focus on The Apostle's Creed and a journey through the Glorious Mysteries. It's an opportunity for youth to explore their beliefs, deepen their understanding of Catholicism, and forge lifelong connections with fellow campers.

We extend a warm invitation to all youth to come and participate in this transformative experience. And for those looking to make a difference, we welcome volunteers to join us in creating an unforgettable week for our campers.

Below, you'll find all the details you need to join us on this incredible journey. Let's come together to make Totus Tuus Summer Camp 2024 an event to remember!

Day Camp (Grades 1-6)

Monday to Friday, 8:45 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.

On Monday to Friday, children entering grades 1 through 6 in the upcoming Fall school year participate in four classes each day, attend daily Mass, learn the Mass parts and liturgical songs, participate in games, icebreakers, skits, songs, recess, and prayer.  Our curriculum helps children to learn and be reinforced in important principles of their Catholic faith. Furthermore, Totus Tuus strives to help students be clear and consistent in their faith. College students who are on fire with their faith give the students living examples to observe and then imitate. This process teaches them that being a witness to their faith in the world around them is a very realistic and worthwhile goal. Finally, Totus Tuus endeavours to show children that the humble, yet courageous process of seeking Christ is a journey that must be aided by prayer and the Sacraments.
The day program fee is $165 per camper, this will include a camp t-shirt for each camper. If payment is challenging, please reach out to us at youth.stpatricksbr@gmail.com or our parish office. We're committed to ensuring no child misses out; we'll find a way to make it work.

Totus Tuus offers evening instruction for junior and senior high school youth (grades 7-12) Sunday-Thursday from 7-9 PM. We have found that energetic, faithful, college-aged teachers can effectively impact junior and senior high school youth. The Totus Tuus Middle/High School Program includes instruction, small group discussions, quiet meditation, prayer, and fellowship. The team teaches in such a way as to continually offer a dialogue by which each person feels respected in his or her most basic dignity.
The evening program fee is $75 per participant, which includes dinner for the participants. If payment poses any difficulty, please contact us at youth.stpatricksbr@gmail.com or through our parish office. We're dedicated to making sure every child can participate, regardless of financial circumstances.
