The parishes staffed by the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius offer extensive youth activites.
St. Don Bosco Camps are an essential part of the summer for boys and girls ages 8-13. Held annually at the Lawton, MI property, these camps aim to get youth outside, active, social, and virtuous with five fun days of sports, tent camping, camp-fires, Daily Mass and devotions, and talks to grow in virtue.
Youth 13 and over participate in annual walking pilgrimages one for boys and one for girls. Typically the pilgrims cover 75 miles over five days visiting sacred spaces and camping along the way.
There are also monthly youth group meetings at the parishes. Evenings include adoration, confession, talks, pizza and sports/bonfires.
