Frequently Asked Questions
How do the boys sleep?
At Frenstat, the boys sleep in one big room, separated by teams (by age) on the floor. They can bring cots or air mattresses for comfort. At Kappe and Camp Texas they are in cabins with a bed divided by age.
Are all ages together?
No, we break into teams by grade, 5-6 together, 7-8 together. Some sports, like dodgeball may be together.
What do they do?
The boys will participate in organized sports by team, talks by age group, mass, meals, team builder activities, stump the priest talks, campfire, and adoration.
Can my boys be in the same group?
We can only group boys if they are in the appropriate grade breaks. We tailor the talks to the age groups.
What about best dressed, do I need to buy clothes for this?
No! Points are given per each article of clothing: belt, coat, tie, shirt, dress shoes, pants, etc. Send your child with what they have. Each item will help!
What if my child has special food needs?
If it’s “no peanut butter”, we can absolutely accommodate that. We are not equipped to handle a complicated food issue. If it is something all-encompassing, I would suggest sending their meals, but please send your son!
How many snacks should I bring?
One package of cookies would be a good portion, or a bag of apples, or a gallon of milk, or a pan of brownies.
How does the point system work?
Boys are awarded points for virtuous behavior, bringing a friend, best dressed items, asking good questions, winning some sports competitions, opening doors, etc. Points are never taken away.
Can I show up early?
You can come early to Mass, just wait in the church to talk to your boy after Mass, as they are still on retreat and functioning as a group. If you need to pick up your boy early from the retreat in general, that is fine.
Who can come to mass?
All are welcome at the closing Mass. It is a family event.
Who are the priests?
The priests are Legionaries of Christ out of the Houston section. Father Michael Sullivan heads it up, and brings Brothers from there as well.
