The Camp Francis summer program is meant to support the mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Community Life ministries within our parish community. We promise to inspire growth opportunities, offer support, encourage participation, and safeguard the environment as we build our summer family. We enable our community to renew the spirit within, maintain the physical body, and grow the mind as we enjoy the quality recreational, educational and spiritual activities within our exceptional facilities and grounds. We welcome with joy all those young people who come to us and invite them into the life of our summer community.
With Peace and Love,
Coordinator of Community Programs
Camp Francis 2020 Registration is CLOSED as all Camps for Summer 2020 have been cancelled due to COVID-19.

Do your kids like to help cook or what to learn the process?
Sign up for either Feed the Need or Caring Casseroles. You and your kids can pick out a recipe, write out the grocery list, shop for the ingredients, make the meal and deliver it to St. Francis. You’ll be helping community families who are living with illness, loss of a loved one, loss of a job, or even welcoming a new baby! It’s just another way we can be present to those in our community who may need just a bit of help.
Does your child like writing letters and also sending and receiving mail?
