Are you ready for Discover Camp 2023?

This extraordinary adventure for girls entering sixth, seventh and eighth grades had been held every year at the Nazareth Motherhouse in
Concordia.  The camp had to be canceled for the years of 2020-2022 due to Covid precautions, but this year it will return on June 15-17, with
Sisters Anna Marie Broxterman and Bev Carlin as camp coordinators.  The camp directors are Marissa Roberts and Trinity Price.

“When the first Camp was planned in the year 2000, the Sister planners described their dream as part of the name: Discover Camp, an
Extraordinary Experience!  The extraordinary dream came true as campers, counselors and parents will attest. Covid brought us to a rude ending in 2020 even though that year’s plan was in place.  Former counselors are so excited that we are hosting it again this year," said sister Anna Marie.  “It is a rare opportunity for young girls to discover and claim their talents and gifts.”

Campers will join together to deepen their relationship with God, learn more about themselves, get acquainted with others, play, pray and do ministry.  The girls will stay inside the historic Motherhouse, with sleeping quarters on the Fifth Floor and activities in the Auditorium
and on the grounds.

This year’s event begins Thursday afternoon and culminates Saturday evening with a closing Mass, followed by an ice cream social for family
and friends. Sister Anna Marie expressed, “The closing Mass bears witness to the phenomenal diversity of talent of the Campers and
Counselors.  It is indeed cause for the Church to rejoice!”
