Summer Ministry Opportunities

Legendary Lodge Camps affirm the great Truths of the Catholic Faith for campers during a week-long adventure of fun and friendship. Salmon Lake is the setting for creating memories, building friendships and experiencing God’s profound love.

We welcome both high school youth and young adults from parishes/schools.

Camps are open to young people entering grades 5-12.

Justice Outreach Project is a week’s worth of service, learning, and solidarity. Centered on the principles of Catholic Social Teaching, JOP is about engaging in meaningful, Christ-centered relationships with the Blackfeet. Focused on the needs & capabilities of young people by placing them outside their comfort zone, this extraordinarily fun and unique adventure crosses the borders of race and culture. Each day is unique, but they all include a mix of prayer, worship, work, play, and cultural immersion.

We welcome both high school youth and young adults from parishes/schools.

Theology of Adventure Camp is aimed at exploring the bold outlook on life that each one of us is made for adventure—a life lived boldly in pursuit of ultimate truth and goodness, uninhibited by fear, hesitation, or self-centeredness. It’s a radical way of life, but it’s the only one we’re interested in. The week is split into two unique environments: the first is a classroom-based experience on Carroll’s campus, and the second is a wilderness adventure set against the Western Montana backcountry. Come and experience what Carroll College’s driving adventurous philosophy is all about.

Perfect blend of rigorous wilderness immersion and campus-centered intellectual engagement. For high school youth entering grades 9-12.

July 30-August 5.

The St. Kateri Institute for Integrative Learning provides high-school youth with a spiritual and academic experience that develops their understanding of the relationship between faith and reason under the beautiful big skies of the greater Helena area.

Less physically demanding, same spiritual richness.

For high school youth entering grades 9-12.

The Legendary Adventure Camp (LAC) integrates the raw, intense and difficult wilderness experience with the foundations of our faith in the context of a 6 day backpacking adventure.
