Every summer, girls in grades 7-12 gather from around the Diocese of Savannah for Call to Holiness Summer Camp. This year’s camp took place June 23-26 at Georgia Primitive Baptist Camp in Claxton. In attendance were 70 campers, 20 counselors, three religious sisters, and numerous diocesan priests and seminarians. Sister Rita, Sister Celine, and Sister Sarah Elizabeth of the Missionary Benedictine Sisters traveled over 18 hours from the Immaculata Monastery & Spirituality Center in Nebraska to serve at camp.

COLLINS--When Father Drew Larkin reminisces about the two summers he spent at Vocatio Dei vocation camp in his youth, he certainly remembers the fun and the intensity with which he and his peers devoted themselves to games like manhunt, a version of tag played at night. 

 

He remembers that on ordination years — when vocation camps were held at Camp Villa Marie in Savannah — the boys camp culminated with a trip to the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist to watch eligible seminarians be ordained to the priesthood.

Though Mass, adoration and other spiritually enriching activities bookend each day of the diocese’s annual girls' and boys' summer vocation camps, youth say that they find God not only in the camp’s chapel but also in its people.
