This camp is a “Next Level” Catholic HEART Workcamp. It is open to those entering the 8th grade in the fall of 2018 and older.
- The entire school is has air-conditioning.
- Showers – We have four sets of showers (2 sets for girls and 2 sets for boys).
- Sleeping Arrangements – The campers will sleep in classrooms, all of which are carpeted. 15-20 will fit comfortably. The Diocese of Evansville requires separate sleeping quarters for youth (under 18) and adults (18 and older). An adult from each group will need to sleep in the hallway outside the classroom of their own youth for supervision.
We have an excellent mix of traditional work sites (painting, yard work, building rehab) and social agencies including senior citizen homes, area parish needs, day care centers and homes for persons with disabilities. Most sites are within 15 minutes of the school; however, some sites are as far away as 45 minutes. We have some unique opportunities in Huntingburg, including St. Meinrad Archabbey, Sisters of St. Benedict Monastery and St. Joseph’s Holy Family.

Dubois County Bombers
When you enter the gates of historic League Stadium in Huntingburg, IN, home of the Bombers, you may think you’ve stepped back into the golden age of the game. League Stadium was home to the Rockford Peaches in the hit movie A League of Their Own. The vintage signage, scoreboard, and atmosphere remain. The Bombers play in vintage-inspired uniforms – pants are knickered, stirrups are worn. You may hear Who’s on First over the audio. We even have our own Peaches at the games keeping everything in the stadium rolling, while our coaches and players keep it exciting on the field.
