Summer Camp for Boys by the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem

See the article Summer Camp for Boys by the Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem at AMDG.

The Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem is a relatively new religious order that celebrates the traditional Latin Mass with a semi-monastic life. They are also known for hosting symposia and for teaching the Faith via the classic philosophy of Thomas Aquinas. They have started a school for young men who are discerning a vocation to the priesthood, in a traditional, rigorous manner.

I haven't visited the Canons Regular for a while, but I understand that they have a new chapel at their priory where they hold daily Mass; Sundays they are at the Passionist Monastery nearby: see the website for details.

The Canons Regular are located in a somewhat isolated area, and so their existence isn't very well known yet.
