Boys and girls age 12 to 17 enjoyed a unique summer camp opportunity where they worked with some of the best sports trainers on Long Island in an authentically Catholic environment, including daily Mass. Camp Christ’s goal is to provide a unique baseball, softball, and lacrosse camp experience while conveying a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith – and how athletes might draw upon that faith during life’s trials and tribulations. More than 200 campers took part in the three-day program July 7-9 on the campus of SUNY Farmingdale. New York Giants cornerback Prince Amukamara was among the guests who helped demonstrate the relationship between faith and sports.
