catholic summer camp
in the mountains of Tiger, Georgia
JULY 9-16, 2017
Covecrest is a place where high school students from all over the country come together to experience summer camp at its best. Each week‐long camp includes the perfect balance of time to encounter God and time to play. Every week, a line‐up of dynamic presenters, talented musicians, and dedicated priests serve along with camp staff to help students create a deeper relationship with Jesus.
Come with us and experience two awesome bus rides with tons of friends, whitewater rafting, high ropes courses, the mountains of Georgia, and all that God stuff too.
This is the big trip, you don't want to miss it!

We will leave on buses on the evening of July 9th right after 5pm Mass, and return to Holy Trinity July 16th in the evening.
What adults will be chaperoning the trip?
Parent Trip Leader: Kent Letourneau
Mac and Meredith, our youth ministers, as well as additional parent volunteers and Core team volunteers.
There will be around 20 adults and a priest and/or seminarian, bringing us to approximately a 1:5 adult-to-student ratio.
Where will the group stay?
Our trip to Tiger, GA, will be overnight with stops for fuel, snacks and breakfast and lunch. Once there, we will be hosted in large, single gender cabin type housing. Our chaperones will be in rooms in the same cabin as HT students. The return trip will include a layover in Nashville/Brentwood, TN. In the past we have stayed at an Archdiocesan High School or a large parish in Brentwood.
What is the difference between Covecrest Camp and Camp Tekakwitha?
Although both offer solid Catholic spiritual experiences and outdoor adventure activities, Covecrest includes whitewater rafting and the experience of a cross country bus trip with 130 others from Holy Trinity. This is a parish based experience with our youth ministry vs. an individual registration with a friend.
Will there be other groups there with Holy Trinity?
Yes, approximately five other parishes will populate the remaining 170 spots.
