Chilawee Trails Camp and Opus Dei
Chilawee Trails Camp is an initiative of parents seeking to foster human virtues in their daughters during the summer holidays. The camp enables girls to have fun together while enjoying nature, friendship, sports and crafts. It also helps them realize that having fun is a natural part of a virtuous and faithful life. Chilawee Trails has entrusted to Opus Dei the spiritual formation provided at camp.
Opus Dei is a Personal Prelature of the Catholic Church. The Latin name means "Work of God." The aim of Opus Dei is to help ordinary people seek holiness in their study and daily work, and through their family and social commitments. This message is a central teaching of the Second Vatican Council.
Opus Dei was founded in Madrid on October 2, 1928 by Saint Josemaria Escriva. Currently, over 85,000 people from every continent belong to the prelature.
