A tradition of immersing incoming students into Saint Viator’s commitment to service continues next week at the sixth annual Service & Song Camp.
More than 150 students will turn out for the five-day camp, its largest group ever. They include junior high students and incoming freshmen as well as current Saint Viator students and young alumni serving as leaders.
When the camp begins next week, the students will be divided up into 10 teams, grouping junior high and incoming students with teen leaders from Saint Viator. Each afternoon starts out with a reflection on their service and people they impact, as well as a song led by the student musicians and choral members.
Some of the destinations group have previously volunteered at include Community Threads, Sisters of the Living Word, Wheeling Township Food Pantry and the Viatorian Community Garden.
