More than 600 boys from the Shrewsbury diocese and from Manchester will enjoy a week's holiday by the sea this summer thanks to the Ozanam Camp organised by the Society of St. Vincent de Paul. It will be held in the grounds of Ciwrych Castle, Abergele, North Wales from July 24 to August 14.
For the first time 30 boys from St. Joseph's School for the Deaf, Manchester. will attend. Another 60 boys from parishes in Manchester will be catered for because arrangements for their camp have broken down this year.
Each week approximately 200 boys will be housed in hell tents surrounding a large marquee which serves as both a dining room and chapel. The resident priest says Mass every morning. The boys will he looked after by Brothers of the Society assisted by church students from seminaries.
For his week's holiday a boy will pay about £3 although this is waived in cases of hardship. Bishop Graser hopes to visit the camp on August 7.
