Summer Camp is around the corner; Local parishes help get the word out to families

Who wants to go to St. Vincent de Paul's Circle V Ranch Camp this summer near beautiful Santa Barbara? Before you raise your hands, there is one catch. You have to be a child between the ages of 7-13. Sorry adults!

With the challenging economy and the fact that many more families can't afford summer vacation this year, local parishes have agreed to include camp information in their Sunday bulletins. For many children, attending summer camp will be their ONLY VACATION of 2009.

Camp will consist of eight one-week sessions in July and August, and include swimming, sports, crafts, hiking, music, drama, nature study, campfires, a beach trip and more fun.

Circle V Ranch thanks the following parishes for helping to get the word out about summer camp to many families: Holy Family, South Pasadena; Holy Family, Glendale; St. Dominic, Los Angeles; St. Bernard, Los Angeles; St. Ignatius of Loyola, Los Angeles; and Divine Saviour, Los Angeles.

If YOUR parish can help by including summer camp information in the Sunday bulletin, please call the Society's camp office at 323-224-6213.

Note - Financial aid available for children who qualify.
