Summer Camp

About

Every January for more than 25 years, Frontier Club has organised a Summer Camp for boys in Year 7, 8 and 9. Every year the camp has been bigger and better, and with all this experience behind us we guarantee that the 2020 Summer Camp will be the biggest and best yet! Like all Frontier Club camps, there will be plenty of action and fun. But it will also be an opportunity to grow in skills – like teamwork, leadership and service. It will be a great chance to make new friends and to learn more about yourself and others. Having pauses in the action each day will allow time for personal reflection and prayer. This will be helped by daily presentations about living virtues and Mass offered in the camp chapel. Please apply by filling out the application form asap as places will be limited. We’d be delighted to see you there!
