Portsmouth Diocese Don Bosco Camp Winchester – 24th February 2019

Feb 24 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm



On Sun 24th February, 2-4pm, St. Peter’s, Winchester, Portsmouth Diocese Don Bosco Camp will be hosting our first “Bosco Experience” for any boys of secondary school age 

Portsmouth Diocese Don Bosco Camp:  Sunday 28th July – Saturday 3rd August 2019

Bosco Camp provides an opportunity for SECONDARY AGED BOYS (at least finishing Yr 7 in that July) to have an exciting, activity-packed camping holiday in a safe but challenging countryside setting.

The camp site is currently based in the grounds of St Cassians, a retreat centre in the village of Kintbury, between Newbury and Hungerford. The majority of the facilities of this retreat centre are made available to us. These modern indoor facilities are essential for us to host camp each year, especially with the surprises the British summer can bring us.

We are a Catholic camp and a Mass or service is held each day, but a Bosco Mass can be a very different experience for some and can help reinvigorate faith or challenge cynicism.The boys get a really good introduction to a balanced Christian adult life, and some opportunities they may not get anywhere else. In all cases we try to create an environment where they are respected and encouraged, so that they discover new talents in themselves.
