History

Camp Don Bosco is operated by the Salesians of St. John Bosco, a Catholic religious order of brothers and priests dedicated to young people. The camp has been in existence since 1981, providing a quality summer program in a safe, fun environment. All of our activities are under the vigilant care of counselors trained in Don Bosco's methods of youth work. The counselors are present with the campers at all times. Throughout each day, campers will be in an environment where teamwork, fair play and cooperation are stressed and demonstrated, and in an atmosphere of faith and religious values they grow closer to God and feel more part of His family.

Camp Don Bosco is a Summer Day Camp with a program of supervised, formative and recreational activities for a variety of interests. Nurturing our campers in the Salesian family environment, we strive to develop individuals who will become outstanding future leaders.

Our staff consists of highly dedicated adults, college and high school students, some of whom are former campers here at Camp Don Bosco. Knowing that each child needs personal attention, our counselor to camper ratio is 1:8 (ages 5-7) and 1:12 (ages 8 & up). Following the educational principles of St. John Bosco, the camp provides a home, a playground, a school and a church for the campers, where they can learn about life and faith, while making new friends.
