August 7th-11th, 2017 will be the 18th year of Higher Calling Ropes Camp

Higher Calling Ropes Camp is a week-long Catholic youth camp experience, featuring: Daily Mass, daily low and high ropes course challenges, nightly talks by keynote speaker Doug Tooke, music by David Casey, small groups and more. Throughout the week we have fun with messy games and talent shows and take time to gather and pray, celebrating the Sacrament of Reconciliation and praying together in Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. Higher Calling Ropes Camp is a great opportunity to make new friends from all over Oregon and Washington and grow in faith. This camp is the combined effort of many youth ministers from parishes throughout the Archdiocese of Portland in Oregon.
