Welcome to the Camp Caritas
Located on the shores of beautiful Lac Labelle in the Quebec Laurentians, Camp Caritas is a camp for boys from age 12 to 17. Camp Caritas, founded by Father John Baxter in 1972, has evolved from a small parish type camp into a fully organized non-profit camping facility with campers coming from the Montreal area as well as Ontario. The majority of teenagers attending are Catholic, but Camp Caritas welcomes boys from all religious and ethnic backgrounds in a spirit of brotherhood.
The purpose and goal of Caritas is to reach out and establish a place of contact with today's teenagers. The camp's program is designed to attract, challenge and present more positive life values for today's teenagers. The entry point Caritas has into the young person's world is through sports and challenging outdoor activities. The sports program and outdoor activities are serious and well organized. Through these activities, we communicate vital human, spiritual and fraternal values. Caritas shows young people how to respect themselves and others; to see value in everyone, whether winner or loser.
