       The St.Andrew Summer Camp was established approximately nine years ago with the help of the parish of St. Andrew. It has been thriving ever since, especially due to the assistance of the church family and parents. This summer camp has been seen as a “summer home” for the youth in the Rexdale community, specifically Kipling.

        The theme of this year’s activities is family. This theme was chosen because family is the backbone and the root of an individual’s spiritual and mental growth. A family is a person’s moral support and so, the Catholic community enforces the relevance of family. Most importantly, another influential theme that will be discussed is the  neighbourhood. This theme was chosen because the campers should be educated about the benefits of lending a helping hand and making a difference in their world.
