Youth Ministry Packages
Conquest and Challenge offer parents, schools and parishes methods, material, and training to help boys and girls grow in their faith and serve others. We do this through a variety of packages and kits specifically for adult leaders, teen leaders and the boys and girls.
Conquest camps are for boys in 5th through 12th grade and are focused on spiritual development as well as leadership skills. We offer over 25+ camp locations each summer, providing boys with a unique experience of “Forging them in Virtue” with fun and adventure!
Conquest boys are “Called to Serve” in many ways through apostolic projects, outreach and building up their local groups. Check out the latest news about Conquest youth groups across North America!
- I think it’s an excellent program. Teens have an opportunity to grow in faith both younger ones who are participants and also older ones who serve as role models. It gives them wonderful footing for the years ahead as the enter high school and college. It’s shaped them in the personal values, it’s deepened their personal relationship with Christ, and given them a solid foundation of the teachings of the faith. It’s focused on charity and the command to love one’s neighbor — what a great lesson to learn at a young age.Msgr. StumpfPastor, Indianapolis
- Conquest and Challenge has been incredible joining all of the pieces of our parish. With the school principle and the director or religious education helping me to communicate, we have been able to take High School youth and implement this program to help them be effective Catholics in a fun way.Margaret MerrillYouth Minister, Tennessee
