June 18-29, 2024

Join us in the Pocono Mountains!

Camp St. Isaac Jogues is a summer camp for young men ages 13-15 years old. After having to look for a new site this year we are happy to be hosting CSIJ 2024 at Carpathian Village in the diocese of Scranton, PA from June 18th-29th.

Located at 802 Snow Rd in Cresco PA. Carpathian Village is a Byzantine Catholic Shrine to St. Nicholas and also a retreat center. Nestled in the Pocono mountains it is an ample property with a sports field, a beautiful open air chapel and other facilities.

CSIJ, like all of our camps, is staffed by Seminarians from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. Each day begins with the camp chaplain offering the Traditional Latin Mass (Extraordinary Form) and is filled with spiritual and physical formation as the boys hike, pray, play sports, and listen to spiritual talks and catechism classes given by the chaplain and seminarians.

“I loved experiencing this great camp, Camp St. Isaac Jogues and all the challenges we had. All the boys were very awesome and the seminarians as well.” - CSIJ Camper

Campers are responsible for transportation to either the camp location or to the Scranton airport.


The cost per camper is $500. If necessary, payments can be made in increments, but all payments must be submitted by the first of May. Payment should not be made until the applicant has been definitively accepted.

Note to Parents:

Boys who are sent to Camp St. Isaac Jogues will not be permitted to contact home/parents by phone or email (except in cases of necessity) during the course of the camp. Letters will be permitted and encouraged, and care packages may be received by the boys at any time. However, private snacks and treats are not allowed, so any food brought to camp will become a community snack. No cell-phones, i-pods, laptops, MP3s, CD players, radios, or any other electronic devices will be permitted at Camp St. Isaac Jogues at any time. Parents will be provided with the phone and email contact information of the director in case there is a serious need to contact their child.
