During the week of June 23, members of the Webster Dudley Youth Group held a five-day, “Camp Catholic” Vacation Bible School, for children ages 4-10.  The program was attended by 32 youngsters from Webster, Dudley, Oxford, Douglas and Thompson, Conn., according to Christina Ralph, youth ministry coordinator. Each day of “Camp Catholic” had a different theme related to camping in God’s creation. ”Campers” sang songs, heard Scripture stories, made crafts and played games based on the days’ themes, Mrs. Ralph reported. “Camp Catholic” was staffed by 14 youth counselors from the local parishes, and supported by adult volunteers, as well as, by generous benefactors from the sponsoring parishes, she said.
