Blessed Carlo Acutis Youth Camp

Cum Ipso in monte
(With Him on the mountain)

When Pope St. Paul VI – then Fr. Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini – was ordained Archbishop of Milan, he chose the motto, “cum Ipso in monte,” for his episcopal life. In English, the translation is, “with Him on the mountain.”

The motto is a clear reference to the Transfiguration – in which the Apostles Peter, James, and John directly encountered the divinity of Our Lord.

A reflection of the Transfiguration, life at Blessed Carlo Acutis Youth Camp draws young people into direct encounter with the divinity of Christ through:

Our mission at Blessed Carlo Acutis Youth Camp is to lead young people to a deep relationship with Jesus Christ through His Church. In his short earthly life, Blessed Carlo cultivated great love for Our Lord in the Eucharist, His Mother, and His Church. As Blessed Carlo’s faith life drew him deeper into life with Christ, we seek to, through camping ministry, lead young people on the same path – the path to sainthood, the path home, the path to Him.
