BEST camp for Catholic boys

Better Than Boy Scouts

Lewis Reese

Please sponsor Lewis, 16, for the Call to Chivalry camp. With your help he can become a future leader for moral values.

Chip in here
I’m in a very difficult spot...
Because I said “yes” to several teenagers who want to come to our Call to Chivalry youth camp in Pennsylvania.

The camp starts on July 25. And after the Boy Scouts gave up their moral values there's been a big surge of interest for our camps. That's why we expanded with camps in California and Louisiana.

Dozens and dozens of boys are coming. But I’m scrambling to find generous souls to sponsor boys in need by June 20. In an act of faith, I told them to come.
Like Lewis.

He came to our TFP Call to Chivalry camp last year and loved it.
He’s a gifted 16 year-old lad. And of course his mother and father want him to grow up without falling into the snares of immorality.
But some families struggle to make ends meet. And our budget is so strained that I am forced to turn to you for help.

TFP camps are life-changing experiences. Boys become men... Catholic gentlemen... they learn about virtue… about Crusader Saints and about uplifting role models that Hollywood completely hides.

The camp has a vital focus:
to form strong Catholic leaders.

Boy do we need them in our wayward culture. Just look at the Obamacare/HHS mandate and what it’s doing to destroy the freedom of the Catholic Church in America. It’s plain persecution.
But many of the boys who come to our camps are from families that work hard to make ends meet, and want their boys to respect God and His law and be prepared to fight the good fight.
But they simply can’t afford the $425 it costs for our 10-day camp.

That’s why I am asking you to please consider sponsoring boys like Lewis with a gift of $25 or $50 or $100 or even $425 (a full sponsorship).

Also -- I invite you to consider sponsoring a boy with a gift of $425.

How wonderful that would be.

Rest assured that your gift – no matter the size – will help build a new generation of Catholic boys, and will be greatly appreciated.

This is a once in a lifetime experience for many boys, even though, to put on such a first-rate camp, I will need to raise about $15,400 by July 25.

Is it worth it? Absolutely.

You see, when you consider we’re helping to sanctify souls, not to mention some of the surprises I’ve planned for boys like Lewis to enjoy...

... Sports, treasure hunt, a mountain climb.

If it is raining outside, inside there are all kinds of games – including Ping-Pong and Chess, Charades, Krinky, Risk, Scrabble, Monopoly and Pictionary.

For the “Medieval Games,” boys get dressed in medieval costumes. Each group has a patron saint. They pick a battle cry such as “St. Louis the King, pray for us!”

And for the soul, the boys enjoy lectures on devotion to Mary, lives of the Saints, Confession, Catholic morality and Church history.

After dinner, the boys say the Rosary in a torchlight procession.

And I cannot forget the all-night prayer vigil before a relic of the True Cross. Each boy gets a half-hour time slot, and they do it cheerfully.

This is how one boy describes it:

“This has been the happiest time of my life.”

I hope you understand why I need your help to make this camp successful. Your support will be most appreciated and acknowledged.

Thank you for understanding why I must ask your help to form young Catholic heroes for tomorrow.

With deepest gratitude,
