Immersions and Camps

Immersions invite us to enter into community and service with our neighbors whose lives might be unfamiliar to us. They require cultural humility, openness, flexibility, and generosity. This site is intended to help you learn more about our Service Immersion Program for Juniors moving into their Senior year at Jesuit High School.

Learn more by watching the video by Jack Bratset ‘19 where he shares his Camp Rec reflections.

​What are the Christian Service Immersion experiences about?

Our service immersion program offers rising Seniors an opportunity to put their faith into action in a particular way. The service experiences are about responding to the Gospel call to serve those in need, while questioning the reasons behind why people are in need. While each immersion has its own unique focus, they all encourage participants to live in solidarity with people experiencing acute needs like hunger, homelessness, physical or developmental disability, isolation due to old age or illness, or dislocation due to migration.

With whom will we be sharing our lives?

Camp ReCreation: Camp ReCreation provides a residential summer camp program for its participants, ages 10-60+, to inspire fun, friendship, social interaction and spiritual growth – all while creating valuable respite for parents and caregivers.  Volunteers spend the week working in a 1-to-1 ratio with a camper who has a developmental disability.  Jesuit has a long-standing partnership with Camp Rec. Location: Camp Ronald McDonald at Eagle Lake.
