That looks like fun. I am excited for when my boys are older and get involved with stuff like this. How old is your son who is going? I get a little nervous these days with Regnum Christi but I know most who are involved with that group are great people and are hurting because of all that has happened.

I am extremely cautious about Regnum Christi and do not have any affiliations with it. I was that way before the scandals all hit though, I had several friends who were very involved (one was a consecrated celibate, some Familia couples, etc.) Certain things about it really rubbed me the wrong way.

That said, we know the guy who organizes this particular camp and we've decided to overlook the Regnum Christi connection and give it a try! We would not have sent DS there alone, but because DH is there - he can be on the alert for anything funny.

yes, the recruitment of young boys and taking them away from their families always seemed a little off to me - along wtih other things. It looks like a really neat camp. I wish the Legion and Regnum Christi would just disolve and maybe a new group could be formed under new leadership - not sure what is best but I know a lot of families that have been deeply wounded both before and after the scandals.
Make sure to tell us what they thought of it!
