July 30th- August 8th, 2024

Camp Saint Peter is a summer camp for young men ages 13-15 years old which takes place at Custer State Park, South Dakota, about 30 miles south of Rapid City. The camp is staffed by Seminarians from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary. This year, this first session will run from July 30th - August 8th. 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.

"The camps are really good and continue to stay great! All four of my older sons have gone as either campers, junior counselors, and/or senior counselors, and they all loved it.” - CSP Parent


Camp St. Peter is held at the Stockade Lake group campsite in Custer State Park, located an hour south of Rapid City, South Dakota.


Campers can either fly into the Rapid City airport where they will be picked up by camp staff or can be dropped off at Immaculate Conception Church (FSSP) in Rapid City on the opening day of the camp. Further necessary details will be provided in an acceptance letter.


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. Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to the St. John Bosco Camps - your generosity helps make these camps possible.

Note to Parents:

Boys who are sent to Camp St. Peter 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. Peter 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.

Your generosity makes our camps happen!
