Boy Scout Summer Camp
For many years the Diocese of Gaylord has provided a priest to celebrate mass at Cole Canoe Base during their annual summer camp sessions. Mass is celebrated in an outdoor setting and includes both Catholic and non-Catholic Scouts.
Our Diocesan Chaplain or a visiting priest attends mass at Cole Canoe Base in Alger for each camping session. Each week begins with the opening flag ceremony which includes the entire camp staff and campers. It is followed by an outdoor mass at the Michael Wearn Memorial Chapel. Because a Scout is Reverent, a weekly mass at summer camp is an extremely valuable part of our Chaplain's ministry.
