Below, I share some pictures, all taken by my son. You can see they travelled in style.
My son took a lot of pictures of the National Shrine, the alcoves housing different and varied religious art, and prayer candles.
No pictures at Gettysburg. But here's camp!
Men in Black. The seminarians took the boys to the local ice cream shop.
The boys had inchworm wars.
Don't you think this seminarian is rather Father Brown-esque? The boys loved their shooting lessons. Us Catholics are more wild and dangerous than you think we are.
I was looking at this same moon down in South Carolina. So lovely. I could imagine the boys on their backs watching the beautiful sunsets, clouds and moon, singing songs.
This huge bonfire was a pyromaniac's dream.
The boys had such a good time. My son wants to go back next summer.
God bless all the seminarians and priests.
