Camp Esther 2014 came to a close with resounding requests from students to extend next year’s camp beyond just one weekend. We had more students than ever before, reaching capacity and beyond: this year we even had students on our waiting list! The sixth annual leadership camp was hugely successful and, as always, incredibly encouraging to all of us who witnessed the enthusiasm and passion of these fantastic pro-life teenagers.

Representing all corners of New York, as well as New Jersey, Massachusetts, Ohio, Scotland, and even Spain, these 36 pro-life students came away from Camp Esther with a new understanding of the pro-life issues, a passion for protecting the weak and voiceless, and life-long friends.

Throughout the year, their peer leaders will be checking in with each student to keep them updated and motivated. We know they will all do great things, and we look forward to sharing with you their life-affirming activities as the year progresses.

We have been so blessed by the generosity of The Good News Center and the Ancient Order of Hibernians. We are deeply grateful to both organizations for their faithful support of Camp Esther.
