We have a lot of company! We love it!

Campers are from 6 states, 7 (arch) dioceses, and 25 parishes. Some are relatives of our Sisters or from places where our Sisters serve throughout the United States.  Camp Franciscan3Others heard of the camp through internet invitations. Among the group are those sincerely focused in discerning a call to be a Franciscan Sister. This experience provides a awesome opportunity to work along side us.

    I enjoyed camp so much! I really miss it, the sisters, and all the friends I made. I don’t really have any ideas of how to make camp better. I thought it was perfect. I hope to come back next year and have lots of fun!

    Volunteering to be a leader of Camp Franciscan was a great decision! Not only did it allow me to teach and share more about my faith with the campers but spend quality time with other leaders also discerning and sisters. Seeing how sisters live their daily life helped me see religious life as much of a possibility as married life.
