About Campamento 2017

cropped-group-photo-2016

Campamento supports the Hogar Teresa Toda in the Dominican Republic, a home run by Carmelite Sisters for very poor girls. The camp is organized, supported, and run by Church of Saint Edward (Bloomington, MN) parishioners, staff, and friends across the country. This is the 20th anniversary of our relationship. We’ve had over 90 travelers, many return travelers, since 2002. We’re excited you are considering joining us this year!

This year we had a two week camp: Week 1 is July 8-16, Week 2 is July 15-23. We can run camp with 6-10 volunteers per week. Ideal is 8 per week.

Welcome! Here are links to learn more.

“Goodness always tends to spread. Every authentic experience of truth and goodness seeks by its very nature to grow within us, and any person who has experienced a profound liberation becomes more sensitive to the needs of others. As it expands, goodness takes root and develops. If we wish to lead a dignified and fulfilling life, we have to reach out to others and seek their good. In this sense, several saying of Saint Paul will no surprise us: “The love of Christ urges us on”(2 Cor 5:14); “Woe to me if I do not proclaim the Gospel” (1 Cor 9:16).”

    Have you thought about bringing jump ropes and teaching some rhymes in English class?
    Thinking of you guys!
