The Don Bosco Youth Camp in Gawler has been an exciting success for six years now, in no small part thanks to our fantastic and enthusiastic leaders.

I have always enjoyed our annual camp and loved seeing my friends there for a hectic few days. However, given it was only for a short time it began to leave me without a place to share the Salesian spirit very often.

The Australian summer forever seems to be a point of conversation – drought, scorching heat, a break from school that only gets longer as you progress through to senior years of schooling, and for Young Salesians – weeks of anticipation for the camps to begin.
