Camp Wow is a 4-day, 3-night Catholic summer camp put on by parishes in the Diocese of Rockford for junior high youth. St. Margaret Mary will be going with youth from St. Mary’s in Huntley, St. Thomas in Crystal Lake, and St. John Neumann in St. Charles. The camp counselors are high school youth from these same parishes.
Tuesday, June 28th – Friday, July 1st, 2016
All junior high youth (6th-8th grade students during the 2015-2016 school year) from the above parishes are eligible to be campers. Space is very limited at camp and registration fills up fast. A wait list is available for those who register after all the spots have been filled. The registration deadline is 5/1/16.
Camp WOW is held at Dickson Valley Christian Camp in Newark, IL. St. Margaret Mary Parish provides school bus transportation to and from camp. We will leave in the morning of June 28th and return in the evening of July 1st.
Camp costs $250 for the 4-day, 3-night stay. Your registration needs to be secured with a non-refundable $50 deposit.
Fill out and submit the registration form and turn it into the St. Margaret Mary Parish Office or Youth Ministry Office along with your $50 deposit.

Out of Parish campers are placed on a waiting list until the registration deadline. We have been given a limited number of slots for campers at the present time so all registrations will be honored on a first come, first serve basis. There may be additional slots opening after the registration deadline (5/1/2016) but that will depend on whether the other parishes filled all of their camper slots. If you are unable to attend Camp Wow after registering, your deposit will be returned if we are able to fill your slot with another camper.
We ask all camper’s parents to volunteer during camp. We need drivers of luggage to and from camp to save room on the bus. We also need volunteers at camp during the day and especially at night. Please, prayerfully discern what you can do to help us make camp successful. Contact Jon Bator in the Youth Ministry Office with your availability.
