¨Dear friends of St. Peter’s Monastery,

This is just a short note to say that we now have 21 campers (12 male campers and 9 female campers) and 10 staff members signed up for the Youth Camp in June.  We are expecting more.  Unfortunately, we can accommodate no more than 30 campers, so anyone hoping to join the camp this summer should send in his or her application as soon as possible.  Applications can be downloaded from the bottom of the Youth Camp page on the web site,¨ from St Peter´s email.
