Summer Programs

Extended mission trips, conferences, camps, and pilgrimages are high impact experiences that can be transformative for youth. They present opportunities for leadership development, deeper experiences of community, and an opportunity to help youth feel a part of the larger Catholic community. Here are some opportunities this summer.

REACH OUT-REACH IN

Reach Out-Reach In is a week-long service learning experience held in July each summer. This archdiocesan program provides young people with a local experience of service, simple living, prayer, and justice education. The week is open to teens currently in grades 9-12.

PARISH AND REGIONAL YOUTH PROGRAMS

Parishes, retreat centers, high schools and other organizations offer opportunities around the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and list them on the Summer Programs for Youth webpage.
