Catholic Traditions Camp with the Altar Server Academy: June 17-21 $200


This camp is designed for children in Catholic School or who completed last year’s CCD Camp and are interested in deepening their Catholic Faith.  The material will not repeat last year’s CCD Camp and includes more free time in the Game Room.  Do you want to become an Altar Server?  Afraid because you are not sure what to do?  Maybe you already are an Altar Server - do you wonder why certain priests do certain things certain ways?  Most of the time there is a reason.  Or maybe you don't like doing it because you are afraid to make a mistake?  Let me guess - they gave you a 1 hour 'class' and threw you out on the Altar.  In the Altar Server Academy - you will learn to serve and understand the different ways that different priests or parishes celebrate Mass.  You will learn all the different varieties and why there are differences.  Finally you will be less intimidated because you will know exactly what to do!  Open to any server of any parish or any child who desires to serve at Holy Mass at any parish.  The Altar Server Academy is a separate track from the Main Camp.











CCD Summer Camp: June 24-28 & August 12-16th $200


St. Matthew’s signature and successful camp from last year is back!  One week of Camp with 4 required Sunday events fulfills CCD requirements for the year while strengthening your child’s faith and teaching the essentials of Roman Catholic Doctrine and the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ..

Space Camp: August 5-9 $250


An updated reprise of a camp that Fr. Darcy ran in Dover for three years.  Campers will learn the intricacies of the Saturn V Rocket, the Command Service Module, the Space Shuttle while learning about space disasters, and contemporary rocketry such as Space X and why they are so radical today compared to our legacy systems.  The camp is based on a realistic space scenario: The International Space Station is still spiraling out of control in upper Earth orbit, as its nuclear reactor has gone critical.  Candidates must launch the Apollo Rocket, dock with the International Space Station, deactivate the station’s nuclear reactor, crawl into the Space Shuttle Endeavor, descend from high Earth orbit, enter the atmosphere, and land the Shuttle at the White Sands Space Harbor.  Campers will also learn the basic of model rocketry and each team of 4 specialists (your kids) will build and launch model rockets.
