St. Patrick’s Jamaican Summer Camp


 

 

Our Mission Statement:

Equal Opportunity for All Children

 

Are you interested in joining our team?

Our Program:

St. Patrick’s Jamaican Summer Camp engages children and teens with many life building challenges leaving them with invaluable life skills. These includes, but not limited to, the following:

  • Life Skills
  • Reading Comprehension;
  • Music & Sports
  • Arts & Crafts;

Our Jamaican Team:

All Jamaican team members undergo police checks and interview screening. Team members travelling to Jamaica require a valid passport.

Volunteer Expenses:

Each volunteer pays for their own air fare. Additional cost depends on the number of volunteers and is typically $500 (US) weekly. This includes accommodations, three meals per day and island transportation. Volunteers may stay up to three weeks.

Projects Sites:

The Jamaican team spend a week with each community at three project sites:

  • Hope Hospice
  • Cliffton Boys Home
  • Work Projects

 

At St. Patrick’s we are engaging the youth to help the youth in fundraising -- offsetting the cost for programs in Jamaica while shipping nearly a ton of supplies annually!

If you, or someone you know, feel interested in joining our team or would like to find out more, please contact the parish office at 519-451-4600 to setup an appointment.
