Arcātheos Knighthood


Arcātheos Knighthood is the new name of our leadership program for Catholic boys ages 13-17 years old. During this rigorous time of formation, boys are prepared with essential skills that will not only help them lead the younger boys at camp, but will also enrich their lives back at home.

Decisions for acceptance will start being made known by May 30th of each year. Those who are accepted will be given a password to access the “Knights Only” page below. From there they can download their pre-camp preparation packages.  This will include a small research assignment, as well as some reading material to help them prepare for the journey beginning on day one of training.
