Camp Ozanam Openings
Our St. Vincent de Paul Conference would like to share an opportunity for families with children between the ages of 8 and 14 that are struggling financially or suffering other hardships. SVDP would like to offer your child (ren) the opportunity to attend Camp Ozanam this summer for free. Camp Ozanam provides a traditional summer residential camp in a safe, fun-filled atmosphere where campers are inspired by the gospel of Jesus Christ. For general information about the Summer Camp Program, who may be eligible, and how to enroll a camper, you can download a General Camp Ozanam Brochure at www.svdpdet.org/need-help/camps/, or contact Vincent Barrett at 248-310-1913.
