Franciscan Sisters host eighth annual Franciscan Girls Camp

The Franciscan Sisters of Little Falls hosted their eighth annual Franciscan Girls Camp entitled, “Faith and Fun with Franciscans,” from June 9-11 in Assisi Park, located on the grounds at St. Francis Convent, Little Falls. Twenty-four girls who had completed grades 6-8 enjoyed a variety of fun and unique activities all while camping outdoors in the beauty of nature. Participants also had an opportunity to visit with and learn about the Franciscan Sisters and the values of St. Francis of Assisi. This year’s theme was “God’s Gifts Within and Around Us.” Campers, ages 12-14, came from Bowlus, Carlos, Cold Spring, Fort Ripley, Little Falls, Long Prairie, Milaca, Minneapolis, Nelson, Rice, Royalton and Swanville.
