St. Josaphat Summer Bible Camp for Children

The program this year is GAME ON! It invites kids to grab their megaphones, lace up their cleats, and tune up their instruments. As they fill up the offensive line, sideline, and drumline, your players, cheerleaders, and band members will realize God has given them His ultimate playbook. He wants them to join His team, train hard, celebrate salvation, and encourage
one another. Get in the spirit today with Game On! (
