For many years I have watched young people emerge from the Jesus 4 Real camps excited about their faith and eager to be involved. In recent years this has included my own children and so I can now witness to the effectiveness of the camps from the perspective of both youth ministry and as a Catholic parent. They meet so many other kids whose faith really matters to them and, most importantly, they meet Jesus at a very personal level. I can't recommend these camps enough if you're looking to help your children truly own their Catholic faith." Chris Duthie-JungLeader: Family & Young Church Ministries, Wellington Archdiocese
Jesus 4 Real Camps are well worth attending, young people speak very highly of their experience and are given a real love of Jesus through the camps, which in turn enables them to be involved in the life of Christ's Church. Jesus 4 Real camps give young people the chance to hear the invitation of Pope Francis where he says; "I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ, or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day. No one should think that this invitation is not meant for him or her, since "no one is excluded from the joy brought by the Lord" ... Evangelii Gaudium 3 Cardinal John DewArchdiocese of Wellington
