A safe haven for at risk inner-city youth where the sound of crickets, frogs, and a crackling campfire replace the noise of traffic, sirens, and gunfire.
Summer Leadership Camp is an extraordinary time filled with fun and authentic Catholic prayer, as children discover a world outside of poverty. In the outdoor beauty of the St. Croix River, youth thrive as they grow in internal and external peace. Children participate in archery, campfires, large group games, prayer and worship services, small group fellowship, team-building activities such as climbing the wall, and water fun, such as swimming and canoeing. Each Summer Leadership Camp session typically works with a group of 20-40 campers from schools/churches in Minneapolis and Chicago who partner with Dunrovin.
Attentive program staff members seek to inspire each child’s heart. Teens participating in the DLITE (LEAD-Intensive) leadership program come alongside the campers for a dynamic week of faith, fellowship, and fun.
Inner city students come for free. Dunrovin works to raise funds to cover the costs of offering these students these life-changing camps. Dunrovin provides good food, lodging, fellowship, and friendship! The value of a Summer Leadership Camp experience is $500 per student. However, Executive Director Jerome Meeds says, “In our Lasallian spirit, we welcome students who are unable to pay for their camp experience.” We fund this mission through revenues from group rentals and by the generosity of sponsors, who through their donations make this life-changing youth camp experience possible.”
