Going overseas to study for the first time is both exciting and nerve-wrecking, and there’s so many things to do before you fly off. But in the midst of trying to pack your life away into suitcases and settling your visas, we offer you a little reprieve: a 2-day, 1-night camp for you to meet other Catholic students going overseas and wrestle with tough questions on faith!

What will it be like being a Catholic in a foreign country? Should you continue practising your faith? How do you balance your Catholic faith with the demands and pressures of university life? How do you defend your faith in the classroom or among your more vocal friends? And how many Singaporean Catholics will there be in your university anyway?

Come on down to Camp Fidelis to get all the above questions answered, and pose your own questions! And to mingle with other Catholic students in the same position as you! We guarantee a camp filled with deep prayer, intellectual discourse, and plain good fun 🙂

Camp Fidelis is specially targeted towards students who will be (or already are) studying in the UK or Ireland, whether as full-time students or as exchange students. Students studying in other countries, however, are more than welcome to join us!

The sign-up form can be found below. Feel free to e-mail us at csocsingapore@gmail.com if you have any questions!
