The Office of Youth Ministry in the Archdiocese of St. Louis has always dreamed of having a Catholic summer camp. Now Greg Barker, who used to call himself a displaced youth minister, is helping to make that dream a reality.
Barker is now employed by Catholic Camps of America (CCA) who recently purchased the 130-acre Camp Rockyvine, located 40 minutes from St. Louis. Rockyvine sits in Missouri’s hilly wine country and overlooks the Missouri river, close to the small town of Dutzow.
“The camp is one of the first of its kind”, Barker told CNA, “a privately funded Catholic camp specifically geared for high school teenagers.”
He noted that CCA, which is working in conjunction with the Archdiocese of St. Louis, is “planning to develop a camp that is full of thrilling activity for any high school teenager.”
