At Camp De Smet, located near Denver, CO, boys age 8 – 16 from around the country experience the adventure of camping in Colorado’s Rocky Mountains.  The staff of priests, seminarians and brothers of the Society of St. Pius X, with the aid of zealous laymen from our chapels throughout the District, offer the campers an opportunity to receive a small, though real, contribution to their formation in virtue, self-sacrifice, teamwork and leadership.  From the rising of the sun over Trinity Mountain to its setting behind the Continental Divide, the campers enter a daily routine uniting prayer and instruction to vigorous bodily activity.

Activities include daily Mass, catechism and spiritual conferences; hiking, fishing and canoeing; music, skits and crafts; archery, sports and scouting games.  The camp is highlighted by a day trip which combines a work of Apostolate with a day of fun activities.

The camp’s theme in 2019 will be the Catholic Church, the City seated on a mountain.  The sermons, conferences and Catechism classes will each aim to instill in the campers a deeper knowledge of and ever more profound love for our Holy Mother the Church, encouraging in them a virile zeal in her service.

The camp is located at Trinity Mountain Ranch in Black Hawk, CO and runs from July 10 – 19.  The camp is open to 80 boys, registration closing on June 12.  The fee is $250 per camper.

Please consider sending your son to Camp De Smet.  Sending him into the mountains, you will do much towards his ascent up the Mountain that is Christ.
