The Diocese of Iowa rents out Pictured Rocks Camp in Monticello for a week of fun and adventure.  Many adults take vacation from their regular jobs to come out and do a job that is rewarding and fun with the ability of working with a great group of kids.  Kids participate in many activities and are well supervised.  The highlight for most of the kids is a day long float down Maquoketa River in tubes.


Happening weekends offer an opportunity for young Christians in grades 9-12 to "retreat" from their ever hectic world to consider some of the important relationships in their lives--with parents, with siblings, with peers, and God.

The program begins on Friday at 7pm and ends on Sunday afternoon at about 3:30 pm. The Happening weekend proceeds in a building block fashion, so participants must plan to attend the entire weekend.

A pair of youth leaders, called co-rectors, lead the entire weekend. These high school-aged young people guide the journey. The youth team is assisted by spiritual director (clergy), and other adult leaders.

In addition to songs and games, youth leaders present short talks on topics such as reality, Jesus Christ, God's love, and prayer. Small groups provide the opportunity to learn and share together.
