Brave the Wilderness (High School) and Expedition (Middle School) is a week-long summer camp that is created and hosted by several parishes in and around the Bay Area Deanery at the beautiful Forest Glen campsite in Huntsville, TX! This camp is an opportunity for teens to experience their local Catholic community by spending a week of fun and prayer with their friends and peers from St. Luke and other surrounding parishes. Throughout Brave & Expedition, we dive fully into the camp experience, enjoying fishing, canoeing, ropes courses, and more! We also gather together each evening to experience the Sacraments, pray together, and worship.
AYC is a dynamic catechetical conference organized for all of the youth in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston! From Friday evening through Sunday afternoon, teens have the opportunity to celebrate their faith and learn more about what it means to be a Catholic teenager in today's world by worshipping together with thousands of teens from the Houston area. During the weekend, teens have the opportunity to hear Catholic speakers from around the country, dive deeper in workshops, enjoy live music, worship in the Mass with Cardinal DiNardo, and more! The conference takes place in Houston's Hilton Amercas hotel!
