Youth Ministry & Religious Education​

The St. John Paul II Middle School Camp has been a part of summer in the Diocese of Crookston for more than a decade. The camp’s goal has been to provide a place for youth to encounter Christ through fellowship, prayer and service.  To accommodate increasing numbers of campers, in 2017 an additional session was added to the camp.  

The two sessions of St. John Paul II Middle School Camp originally scheduled for July were cancelled due to the coronavirus. The diocesan Office of Formation in Discipleship has set dates for the camp in 2021, but the format and location are changing.

The first session of St. John Paul II Camp will be held June 20–24, 2021, and is for students entering grades 9–11.  The second camp session will be July 18–22, 2021, for students entering grades seven and eight.  Registration for both camps will open January 26, 2021, and more information will be shared as it approaches.
