STEAMCODERS Coding Camp


Last Saturday, 14 students completed our first coding camp led by wonderful, experienced volunteers. Students were able to create and present digital stories of their likes and interests to their classmates, utilizing their new learned coding skills in a fun and creative way. 

SVdPLA is currently planning on organizing this free coding camp again as many of the parents, volunteers, and students agreed that it was a great program and benefit for the community.

Hike 4 Kids 2018


Yesterday, September 9th, 2018, hikers of all ages trekked the Echo Mountain Trail in Altadena in support of a worthy cause: reopening and rebuilding Circle V Ranch, our summer camp for disadvantaged children.

Circle V camp counselors, representatives from our generous sponsors, former campers, LA Council President Ray Sweet, Society employees, Vincentians, and their friends made it all the way to the top.

"It was a tough hike," many said, but the view and the cause were worth it.

An outdoor Mass to kick off the hike.
