Because of you, Damascus is quickly becoming the country’s largest Catholic retreat and conference center, awakening faith and forming missionary disciples! Here’s how you can contribute:


Build the Adventure
Your donations will go towards the Damascus Catholic Mission Campus Capital Campaign. Currently, this is our greatest financial need. The development of this property has led to an even greater demand and until we raise capital campaign costs, we will not be able to keep up with the incredible growth God is blessing us with. Help us keep up with the Holy Spirit!

Live the Adventure
Your donations will help with camperships and keep camp affordable for all by blessing the overall operations of Damascus. We have not raised camp costs since 2011 because we are committed to keeping camp affordable to all families. We also offer retreat rentals at costs lower than other non-Catholic retreat facilities because we believe it is important to serve all parishes. Help us keep costs low!

Sponsor a Camper
Every year we have students who are unable to attend Catholic Youth Summer Camp due to financial limitations. Please consider making a donation to Catholic Youth Summer Camp by sponsoring a camper. This is truly the most important part of our ministry, and without your help, it is a need that may not be recognized.

Sponsor a Missionary
The heart of our ministry is our missionary staff and counselors. While most summer camps hire summer staff positions, we operate under a missionary model where our summer staff and counselors actually fundraise to serve with our ministry! This helps foster a truly mission-mindset from our team members. Please consider supporting our missionaries!
