Welcome To Cathedral Camp!
Cathedral Camp is located in East Freetown, MA, on the southern shore of beautiful Long Pond - a shallow, warm water pond, the largest natural body of water in Massachusetts.
The camp celebrated its 100th anniversary two years ago - it has been in continuous use since 1919. Over all those years, Cathedral Camp has earned a stellar reputation for safe, secure summer fun for boys and girls from ages 4 to 14.
Our mission as a ministry of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fall River is to offer quality camping opportunities in an atmosphere where Judeo-Christian principles are modeled by the way we treat one another and our environment. We welcome all children without regard to race, color, or religious creed.
The weekly session fee includes registration and transportation to and from camp. Supervision is available before camp from 8:00 to 8:45 A.M. and after camp from 3:45 to 5:00 P.M. The weekly fee for this supervision is $25.00 for A.M. and $25.00 for P.M., or $40.00 for both. Also, an early/late fee will apply for any camper dropped off before 8:00 a.m. or picked up after 5:00 p.m.
A Licensed, Regulated, & Safe Environment
To ensure the best use of time, some structure is built into the day's camp activities. Campers are grouped into units according to their age and gender. Their own group counselors, as well as department counselors supervise, instruct, and guide the children as they move through six periods of activity each day. This model allows for variety and flexibility when special events are scheduled.
Cathedral Camp complies with all regulations of the MA Department of Public Health, as well as diocesan regulations, and is licensed by the Freetown Board of Health. Criminal background checks are conducted on all staff members on a yearly basis in addition to potential staff members prior to hiring.
The Cathedral Camp Retreat & Conference Center can accommodate a wide variety of functions in serving the group and individual needs of Church, school, and professional organizations. Our retreat facilities are the perfect setting for Confirmation retreats, days of recollection, outings, conferences and workshops, overnight retreats for adults and youth, bereavement luncheons, and many other functions.
With ample accommodations for 75 overnight guests, multi-function buildings that feature a main dining room, a large auditorium, and several smaller conference rooms, the Cathedral Camp Retreat & Conference Center is the ideal choice in the perfect setting for any special function.
