Camp Wojtyla

June 22, 2016

What does it take to create a Catholic worldview in today's young people? At Camp Wojtyla, we believe in Jesus' words in John 10:10 that he came to bring life—and “life to the full.” We are named after Saint John Paul II, whose given name was Karol Wojtyla. He believed that by taking young people into the outdoors, they could retreat from the confusing and troubled world around them to take stock of their relationships with God, with themselves, with each other, and with the world around them. Through doing this, Fr. Wojtyla changed the lives of many young people—and eventually changed the world!

Today, Camp Wojtyla is located in the heart of the Rocky Mountains on 1200 acres of pristine Colorado wilderness, not far from where Pope John Paul II visited during his trip to Denver for World Youth Day in 1993. Learn more.
