Why a Catholic sports camp?

From Sacred Scripture to Vatican II, Christianity has much to say about sports.  As Pope Pius XII said, "How can the Church not be interested in sport?"  The Church "sees in sport a gymnasium of the spirit, a means to exercise moral education; and because of this it admires, approves, and encourages the practice of sport in its various forms" (Bl. Pope Paul VI).  Saints from Paul to JPII stress the natural fit between athletics training and training for heaven.  "While playing sports, Christians find help in developing the cardinal virtues" (JPII).  St. Paul wrote, "do everything for the glory of God" (1Cor. 10:31).  "Everything" includes sports!

 

Testimonials

Really, what more can parents ask for? My son found a great outlet in sports AND his faith exploded! This camp connected the two for him. ‘Thank you’ is truly not sufficient.
— Janet Woodward
The Frassati Camp is a blessing for boys by focusing their young hearts, minds and athletic skills on the power of prayer, virtue, hard work and putting the team before the self - on and off the court.
— Stephen & Carrie Keating
We are truly grateful for the opportunity that this camp afforded our sons as a love for Christ was incorporated with a spirit of good sportsmanship and a focus on the virtues. The boys loved the camp and came home fired up about basketball and about the saints. We included the novena from the prayerbook given to the camp participants to blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati in our nightly rosary and our son was so proud to lead that part of our family prayers and tell us all about what he had learned about his life. Thank you for being a lived example of our Catholic faith! To the heights!
— Parent
I learned that sports can help you become a saint.

I used to just stand around on defense both in basketball and life, but now I know how to defend the hoop and my soul.
— 8th grade camper
My sons had a wonderful time at Frassati Basketball Camp! It was the perfect blend of sports, exercise, fun and faith formation.
— Shandra Emrich
I learned to fight off laziness and selfishness and replace it with self-discipline.
— 7th grade camper
I will remember most the defensive warm-up because even though it hurt I got through it and offered it up for whoever’s name was taped on my wrist.
