Spring 2019 Prospective Student F.O.R.T. Camp

Are you considering St. Martin’s Academy for your son? If so, please consider attending our Spring 2019 Prospective Student F.O.R.T. Camp for 12-14 year old boys. Campers will meet the faculty and staff of the academy and participate in daily farm chores alongside our current students. In addition, campers will practice important fundamentals of servant leadership while learning to navigate with a map and compass, light a fire with minimal tools, tie survival knots, and administer emergency first aid in the field. This is an ideal opportunity to discern whether St. Martin’s Academy is right for you.

Dates:  27-31 March 2019

Age: 12-14

Price: $400

Here are a few things you will do:

  • Use a map and compass to chart routes and navigate challenging terrain
  • Attend and serve Mass in the field
  • Lead a team of your peers through tasks that will challenge your creativity and stamina
  • Say the rosary daily
  • Evenings around a campfire with songs, stories, and skits
