2024 Theme: Here & Now!

This summer, Catholic HEART Workcamp embraces a simple yet powerful theme: recognizing that young people aren’t just the Church’s future; they are its heartbeat, meant to live out their faith in the present moment—HERE & NOW.

Young people offer the world new energy and perspective, and the Church needs them, HERE & NOW. CHWC wants to give teenagers the opportunity to be actively involved in serving others. God desires His transformative power to flow through the hearts of our youth, enabling them to be examples in making the world a better place today.

Timothy 4:12 states, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Pope Francis has urged young people to embrace their role in the present and the future of the Catholic Church by building relationships with their community and with God.

Young people are called to let their light shine before others so that others may benefit from their good deeds and glorify our Father in heaven. Teens do not have to wait to be active in their faith; CHWC invites them to be involved through acts of kindness and service to those who are in need HERE & NOW.

Young hearts are invited to establish habits of prayer, gratitude, service, and faithfulness in Jesus Christ. Join us this summer as we celebrate the youth’s enthusiasm, force, and spirit and embrace their call to be servant leaders, not just in the distant tomorrow but HERE & NOW!
