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.

What others are saying

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

Father Taylor Leffler, V2 Chaplain

“Ryan had the best experience at V2. It is all he talks about. When he sees the pictures that were posted on Facebook he talks about each event with absolute fondness.  He talked about the ” sake of the sorrowful passion”  (Divine Mercy) and how everyone raised their arms like Jesus on the Cross during the “whole prayer!”  Ryan is not the best speaker because of speech and language issues . . . Thanks for the best spiritual encounter.

Mother of Camper

 “I was very impressed by the camp and how it was set up…Each day the campers and their leaders participated in Mass, the rosary, the Divine Mercy Chaplet, and adoration. The campers were encouraged to think about the vocation of priesthood and whether or not God might be calling them to the priesthood someday… Lastly, young Catholic boys need to know how to grow in their faith and in grace. Camp Virtus et Veritas does a good job of helping them with all of these things.
