And most of all, the guests of Quinipet learn about the beauty and grace of the Catholic religion. Students and parents can learn more about one another and become closer. Students also have an opportunity to become more appreciative of our planet during a three-mile hike.

In 2006, Quinipet became self-supporting. The 19 buildings at the camp were built between 1882 and 1965. Anyone can come to the summer camp or come for a retreat to learn or relax. They have a sleepaway camp, day camp and sailing adventures. Visit them online: quinipet.org
