Imagine a place full of wonders. In which many Christian middle schoolers gather to grow in their faith, have fun, and get a new change in scenery. One would answer “Impossible!” But, nevertheless, it is true. This place does exist, and it is called Camp Breakaway!

Sponsored by Parish of the Holy Spirit Youth Ministry, Camp Breakaway began in July 20000 and is a five-day summer camp open to all incoming 6th through 9th grade youth (as of Fall 2018). It is currently held at Camp Touchet in Dayton, WA. Campers sleep in cabins on bunkbeds and have access to bathrooms and showers. New friends, prayer and worship, hiking, campfires, crafts, and music are just a few of the great experiences campers can expect.  This year the dates are July 30 – August 3, 2018, and cost is $150 if paid by June 30 or $175 after June 30.  To register or get more information, contact Pat Moore at (509) 735-8558 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Quote from a Breakaway camper now in high school: “Ever since sixth grade, I have LOVED Breakaway.  I look forward to going every year.  Not only is it a fun place where I get to grow in faith and the love of God, but I always leave full of life and knowing a little more about myself.”
