JPII Vocations Camp

Registration for the JPII Vocations Camp will open on June 1st.

This is our 7th Annual Vocations Camp for young men 12-16 years old! Young Men going into 7th grade or just leaving their sophomore year are welcome. Priests and several seminarians from our diocese will be leading the camp at Abbey of the Hills in Marvin, SD.


There will be the incense of the daily Mass and smoke of campfires, tugging on the daily rosary and tug of war, Eucharistic Processions and hiking, Confession and kayaking, vocation talks and many games. The camp is a rare chance for young men to begin considering their vocation from God by hanging out with priests and seminarians! It will be both physically and spiritually awesome. This is truly an exceptional opportunity.

Campers will form into small groups with a seminarian as their leader. Campers will be staying in the Abbey of the Hills lodging. They will be sleeping two campers in a room. Special Food can be provided for allergies.

Arrive at Abbey of the Hills in Marvin, SD Wednesday August 2nd @ 9 a.m. Depart Sunday August 6th @ 2 p.m.

Cost is only $225 and there are only 30 spots available.

Need financial assistance? Request a scholarship amount by emailing, ask your local parish or Knights of Columbus Council. All food is included in the price package. All gear will be provided.

Registration Deadline July 10th
