Camp invites young men to discern vocation
For the third year in a row, the Diocese of Oakland's Vocations office invites young men, ages 13 to 18, to attend Quo Vadis Camp.
Applications are available at www.oakdiocese.org/vocations/priesthood/quo-vadis. Each camper will need to have a recommendation letter from his pastor. There's room for 40 campers. Those who have not attended previously are welcome, as are returning campers.
Some of the campers have continued to meet in discernment groups over the year.
In some parishes, the pastor may be the one suggesting the camp experience to the young people.
With so many teens in one place, there's plenty of space for activities. There are team-building exercises crafted for the group, as well as a large lawn for sports activities. The pool is a well-used amenity at the camp.
Priests of the diocese visit the camp each day for Mass and prayer, as well as to tell their vocation stories to the campers.
Quo Vadis — Latin for Where are you going — Camp drew 20 campers the first year, and reached its capacity of 40 last year.
