2019 Children's Parade Marshals - Camp MOSH
The Bourbonnais Friendship Festival is pleased to introduce our Children’s Parade Grand Marshals Camp MOSH
What is Camp MOSH?
Camp MOSH (Maternity Outreach Service for Humanity) is a 5-day bi-yearly mission experience where volunteers gather together to help those in need. A sense of community is built as we support our neighbors by helping them with projects such as window washing, cleaning, painting, light carpentry and yard work. We begin each day with Mass and breakfast, meet each night to share dinner, and end each night celebrating our faith with “Yeah God” experiences from the job sites and Christian entertainment.
Who does Camp MOSH help?
Camp MOSH serves people who need help. We strive to help those throughout Kankakee County who face financial, physical, mental, and spiritual hardships. We also reach out to non-profits including Compassionate Ministries, Bourbonnais Terrace Nursing Home, Animal Shelters, and Good Shepard Manor. During a normal Camp MOSH week, we complete 75-100 projects that serve individuals, families, and non-profits. Since our first Camp MOSH in 2009, we have helped thousands of people living in Kankakee County complete needed work.
Who is Camp MOSH?
Camp MOSH is a collaborative group of youth and adults. We have 75 youth and 90 adult volunteers signed up to help this year. Many of our volunteers go into the community and work on projects for those who need our help. Many other volunteers stay at Maternity BVM Parish to prepare for the physical and spiritual needs of our project volunteers. Their service includes preparing and serving meals, organizing music and leading prayer services.
When is Camp MOSH?
This year will be our 6th Camp MOSH week since 2009! It will take place July 28th – August 2nd, 2019.
