12019-07-24T04:46:56-07:00Diocesan Summer Camp4plain2019-11-12T09:44:51-08:00Beginning with the Howe Conference in the 1930s, the Diocese of Northern Indiana has devoted some of its summer programming to youth. Senior high schoolers began attending the Howe Conference in large numbers by the 1950s. Later the camp names were changed to the Bishop White and Bishop Gray camps in the 1970s.
In the 1980s, the venue of the camp was moved to Camp Alexander Mack on the shores of Lake Waubee in Kosciusko County. The focus of the youth ministry changed to younger students from third to ninth grade. The curriculum consist of Bible teachings mixed with real life experiences. Senior High students have been given more recently the opportunity to take a mission trip. Camp New Happenings, created by Charlotte Strowhorn of St. Augustine's, Gary, serves children aged 8 to 11 who have experienced the incarceration of a parent or care giver. This week-long overnight camp is also held at Camp Alexander Mack.
