VIRTUS ET VERITAS MINISTRIES

Our Mission

Virtus et Veritas (V2) Ministries cultivates authentic encounters with God & fellow man through adventure experiences and formation in virtue & truth to develop Christ-like leaders.

Virtus et Veritas was founded in 2015 as a week-long summer leadership camp for boys.

The response to the camp was overwhelming!

Spots began filling up in as little as three days!

In 2018, weekend adventures were started to foster ongoing community and formation.

In 2019, two full weeks of summer camp were offered to help meet demand.

In 2021, the High Adventure was introduced as a new annual event serving young adult men.

WITNESS FROM V2 FAMILY

In June 2023, the Grandgenett Family visited with Spirit Catholic Radio on their show “Witness” about their experience with V2!

PResentation by Toby Korensky

Our founder, Toby Korensky was invited to speak at the Central Region Serra Club meeting in the fall of 2023.  Watch the recording of this presentation as Toby shares about the ministry and its growth over the years.

What others are saying

“A life changing event for our young men during a critically important developmental stage in their lives.”

Parent of Camper

“After camp I saw Jesus more as a friend and someone who desires to have a beautiful, deep relationship with me.”

High School Youth Leader

“Truly the most important week of my son’s life throughout the year.”

Parent of Camper

“Camp Virtus et Veritas is the best thing going for vocations in the Archdiocese, in my humble opinion.”

Father Taylor Leffler, Camp Chaplain

“Our son had a great experience.  He was nervous but it was a positive week and he came out of his shell as the week went along…  He said he wants to go back, so I take that as a 100% win!”

Parent of Camper

“This was my 5th year at camp and I felt that this was the most spiritually powerful week that I have been to.”

Youth Leader

“The boys said it was the best camp they’ve ever experienced.  They have done a few now, and this one combines the fun and games with spiritual and prayer perfectly!”
