IntenCity Summer Service Camp is a day-camp opportunity for students grades 5-8 to share their time and talents with those in need. This is a great way to serve the Indianapolis community, learn new ways to use your gifts/talents for the service of others, have fun and meet new friends, share some life-changing experiences, and proclaim the Gospel!

Campers will meet at the BCHS St. Benedict Center each day and go into the community in various areas of service. Register early; these camps fill up quickly.

Jr. IntenCity Summer Service Camp is a service day-camp opportunity for students grades 1-4. This camp will run like a traditional summer day camp with a service element weaved into each day. While service will be our main focus, we will also play fun games, make some crafts, and learn about the importance of having a strong faith rooted in service.

Camp will be held in the auxiliary gym. Limited field trip service experience may be included.
