My middle school son is interested in going to Camp Armstrong
this summer because his friend is going. I am interested in any
general feedback about the camp and specifically how big a role
religion plays (it's a Catholic camp). My son is an atheist and
wouldn't be comfortable with much emphasis on
Thanks for your input!
Hello. Camp Armstrong is a wonderfull camp program with a wide
range of activities to challenge children mentally and
physically. It is however a very spiritual experience. There are
religious (non denominational) songs, worship services and
campfires. Mostly its a postive moral teachings but there were
definitely some aspects of Catholic religion...especially since
most of the campers and staff come from Catholic schools and
affiliations. I do not have any recent experience with the camp
but I attended for many summers as a child. I am thinking of
sending my seven year old this summer or next. Its a great camp
and if your son is spiritual and enjoys the wonders of nature
and the outdoors, even though he doesn't believe in God he may
still enjoy the experience.
